A project recently completed by Ezi-duct and Polex in Suva Fiji, involved a dust extraction system for a large cabinetry and joinery company, Modern Furniture Fiji.
Modern Furniture Fiji is a highly respected business in the Southern Hemisphere, gaining a reputation as one of only a hand full of companies capable of producing artesian quality products in high volume in cabinetry and joinery, within the South Pacific.
Over the course of 20 years the company has amassed an extensive portfolio having worked with a myriad of internationally renowned luxury resorts, including the Grand Pacific , Novotel and Sheraton to name a few, and also working with an extensive number of luxury island resorts across Fiji with their wood paneling and design.
A comprehensive dust extraction system was supplied by leading dust and fume extraction experts Ezi-Duct and Polex, to extract and filter the high levels of dust particles escaping from their wood working machinery, which was causing high levels of dust within their factory.
The MDC 24000 S shaker type dust extractor was selected, with its powerful 30 kW fan, which is capable of generating up to 24,000 m3/h of air, creating strong suction at the machines. The heavy duty dust extraction system was able to capture all sizes of dust particles with its large filtration area of 112 m2, transferring the high volume of dust to a large 20' shipping container at the bottom of the unit.
Having had the dust extraction system running for a few weeks Modern Furniture Fiji were elated with the results, clearing a large proportion of dust from their production line. The dust extractor bin is emptied by local businesses being offered free wood dust, courtesy of Modern Furniture’s generosity, and support for the local Fijian community.
