Polex Environmental Engineering, leaders in their field for dust and fume filtration systems and at the forefront of designing contemporary dust extraction units, recently completed their part at the Bradfield Campus project in Sydney, NSW.
Bradfield's St Leonard's campus set in Northern Sydney, is a school that offers an extensive range of study and is home to three Centres of Excellence; health (including aged care and nursing), digital media and information technology. The Campus forms the centre of schooling, technology and industry partnerships consolidated on the one site.
Beaver Air Conditioning Pty Ltd subcontracted Polex to supply and install new ducting from the various woodworking machines to the existing dust collection unit. The duct was sized to extract airbourne saw dust from each machine.
In addition, Polex supplied and installed a welding extraction system to exhaust welding fumes from the metalwork room. Polex supplied and installed three EZIARM 150 mm diameter 2 m articulated fume arms. All arms were connected using EZIDUCT modular ducting and the fumes were exhausted via ducting above the building.
