Dunlop Flooring are Australia's largest provider of quality foam underlay, with over 40 years experience in improving flooring performance. Dunlop's philosophy is to produce the highest grade of environmentally friendly underlay, the underlay is made from 100% recyclables and is manufactured from 90% recycled materials, which leaves a lighter footprint for Dunlop.
The manufacturing of underlay from recyclable materials greatly reduces landfill and lowers the overall impact on the environment, this has allowed Dunlop to achieved a maximum Green Star rating for building interiors by the Green Building Council of Australia.
Dunlop Flooring's management were keen to reduce the level of foam dust from their manufacturing systems and commissioned Polex to install one of their reverse pulse type dust collector the MDC 1-4, at their NSW premises.
The MDC 1-4 dust collector automatically and continuously self cleans its filter bags with a reverse pulse action. The MDC-P is supplied standard with a Rotary Discharge Valve (or airlock).The MDC-P is supplied standard with a High Efficiency Clean Fan that produces around 25% more air than conventional fans and saves on energy costs. The Variable Speed Drive (optional) is a fantastic energy saving device that lowers and increases the power consumption of the fan motor when slide dampers are closed and opened.
With the dust filtrating system in place Dunlop Flooring have achieved success in reducing the level of foam dust from their storage hopper and manufacturing systems, which has resulted in better air quality for employees at Dunlop Flooring NSW.
