What is Dry Dust Extraction?

The most popular dust extraction method, dry dust extractors collect dust using filters and cartridges. Known for processing large volumes of air when filtering medium/large dust particles such as wood, flour, and metals.

They typically include a cleaning system to discharge the dust gathered within the filters and cartridges, they carry out a shaker cycle or reverse pulse cycle to free the collected dust and empty it into a removable storage bin.

How do Dust Extractors Work?

Dust collection systems work in a variety of different ways but all have general principles in common. They draw process dust and particulates from the air through a filter that first captures and separates the matter, and then discharges decontaminated air back into the workplace or environment.

Dust extractors are used in many different and varied industries and so different demands are made of them; however all have common components such as a blower (or fan), dust filter, filter cleaning system, dust container and dust removal system.

Five common types of dust collection equipment are fabric filter baghouses, inertial separators (like mechanical cyclones), cartridge collectors, wet scrubbers, and electrostatic precipitators.

Importance of Explosion Panels in a Dust Extractor

As extraction systems suck in air in concentrated volumes, the risk of explosive dust igniting is greater; therefore precautions are required to control the risk. A dust extractor with explosion panels installed will have these panels located in the areas where the dust is most likely to combust, controlling the explosion so it ignites in the area that has been constructed to withstand the impact without damaging the extractor itself.

Factors to Consider for Your Next Dust Extractor

When implementing the safety measures to ensure minimal risk to your workers, the factors to consider when purchasing your extraction unit/system are:

  • Dust Source - Does the process that produces dust occur in an enclosed or open area?
  • Capacity - Does the extractor have a large enough filter area required to handle the volume of dust?
  • Type of Dust – Do you need an extractor capable of handling dust at risk of self-igniting?
  • Maintenance – Would a self-cleaning extractor with an automatic shaker cycle be more suitable for you?

For further guidance, find out how to carry out your own COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) risk assessment at the HSE website to help calculate your requirements.

Importance of Dust Extractors

Dust in the workplace can affect product quality and employee´s health. Having a dust-free environment is essential to the health and safety of the workforce. Not only does it affect the health of employees but the dust covers the equipment affecting production processes and quality of the products. 

Capturing the dust at the source prevents it from spreading, done by using a dust extractor system to facilitate the important housekeeping to avoid it from accumulating.

What are Shaker Dust Collectors?

Shaker Dust Collectors contain a number of woven bags, which are fixed onto rails and use their surface area to capture dust as it is drawn through the extraction unit by its fan.

Bags are periodically cleaned by rapidly shaking the bags through a shaker motor and linkage system which removes the filtered dust from the bags and into a collection bin.

These units are commonly used in foundries, steel mills, the mining industry, power plants, and smelting industries.
