This dust collector uses BELFAB’s patented modular technology, allowing to add-on filtration modules when the volume of air to be filtered increases, or to optimize the filtration ratio cost-effectively and is equipped with fans that can be modified to increase the airflow from 2 HP / 1000 CFM up to twin 20 HP / 12 000 CFM fans.

Application: Saw department of plastic supply/fabrication company required dust collection system upgrade to remove dust and trim from existing and new, larger CNC saws.
Problems to solve: Original dust collection system suffered from reduced airflow due to elevated pressure drop and difficulty to maintain manual clean after filter system.
Solution delivered by Airpro Inc: Dust collection system upgrades included self-cleaning after filter unit that shakes filters each time the system is shut down. Rotary Valve/Air Lock was increased to 20” size from 16” size in order handle larger chip/trim section volumes. Auto shake after filter with increased filter area reduced pressure drop and kept air more constant at tools, clean air is returned to the facility.
