But why take the risk when a wet collector can eliminate the problem altogether?
Wet collector protection In order to ensure compliance and cut excessive upkeep requirements, Midwest Products and Engineering (MPE), a Milwaukee-based designer and fabricator of enclosures, carts and consoles used by the medical and electronics industries, decided to take a new look at its dust collection system requirements.
By switching to wet collectors, many companies are upgrading their protection against dust fires and also improving air quality for workers at the same time.
Because we work with a variety of materials, including metals like steel, titanium, magnesium and aluminum, the wet collectors will improve our protection against any smoldering material or fire.
Most of them have now been outfitted with downdraft wet collectors from Filter 1 (Garland, TX), a company that specializes in off-the-shelf and custom dust collection systems.
Because the Dust Extraction Swing Arm can be mounted to Ruwac's portable dry vacuums as well as its line of explosion proof wet collectors
, it makes it a very diverse vacuum accessory capable of safely removing everything from combustible metal dusts to grains, sugars and other fine powders.
Typical pollution control equipment may comprise mechanical separators, filtration devices, particulate scrubbers, wet collectors
, electrostatic precipitators, gas absorbers and combustion incinerators.
