How to size ductwork for industrial dust collection systems

The ductwork of an industrial dust collection system connects the system’s hoods, air cleaning device(s) and fan. Carefully planning the size of the ductwork will assist in reducing waste, reducing costs and improving efficiency. Types of Industrial Ductwork Tapered systems: The velocities are nearly constant as the airflow is merged together and the duct becomes…

Control Costs by Carrying Dust at the Right Speed

One way of controlling your dust collection costs is to ensure that the system is carrying dust through the ductwork, from the source to the collection device, at the right speed. The rate at which the dust is carried through the system is known as the conveying velocity. And the correct velocity helps with system…
