Polex recently installed a turn-key dust collector system at Blue Mountains Kitchens located in Springwood, NSW.
Dust extraction was required as a result of fine timber dust generated from five woodworking machines.
Polex designed, supplied and installed a Modular Shaker Bag type dust extraction system with 4500 m3/h airflow capacity, 40 m2 filter area, a 7.5 kW centrifugal fan. The waste is discharged into a two 120 L sulo bins positioned under the dust collector. The system was sized to extract through two machines in operation simultaneously.
Polex Modular Shaker dust collectors are constructed from folded and bolted 1.5 mm thick Galvanised sheetmetal panels. The material thickness of the dust collector panels has been optimised to minimise cost whilst maintaining strength. Polex dust collectors have been designed with smooth internal surfaces to minimise dust hang-up in the hopper.
The dust collector legs are fabricated from heavy Square Hollow Section (SHS) steel as standard, making them suitable for heavy duty industrial sites. All Polex dust collectors are structurally certified to withstand high wind loadings. The dust collector legs are hot dip Galvanised for long lasting corrosion protection.
