Flow cytometric analysis of the bone marrow aspirate showed an approximately 20 percent population in the blast gate positive for CD34, CD117, bright CD7, cytoplasmic CD3, and myeloperoxidase but negative for surface CD3, consistent with a T/M-MPAL (Figure 2); there was no immunophenotypic evidence of recurrent DLBCL.
My planer has its own blower on it, and even with the dust collector in use, it blows sawdust through the small opening behind the blast gate. That little pile always drove me nuts.
This problem can be adjusted and corrected by the blast gate located between the dust collector and the separator.
The test also indicates whether adjustments are required in the abrasive separator blast gate to the ventilating system, or to the metering system in the automatic abrasive replenisher.
Energy efficient: ramp down of motors when no material is present, dust control blast gates
For $70 to $110 and an hour of your time, you can set up a smaller version of a whole-shop dust collection system, complete with enough blast gates and inlets to handle a range of fixed and portable tools.
Ecogate won for the Ecogate dust collection gate system, a computerized system that closes blast gates for machinery that is not operating and regulates the power of the dust collector, thus saving energy.
Most times, this can be attained by moving the blast gates on the back of the separator.
