Wood dust generated in woodworking facilities poses significant safety risks. Wood dust was responsible for 34 fires and 11 explosions in the first six months of 2021 and is one of the leading causes of fire and explosions among all industries, including furniture and cabinet making.1 In addition, wood dust is classified as a known carcinogen and can have long-term adverse effects on the health of the respiratory tract and mucous membranes of people who work in wood shops.

Woodworking Dust Collectors that Complement Your Equipment
We have over 45 years of experience customizing dust collection systems that help woodworking businesses and vocational schools comply with OSHA regulations, increase facility safety, protect employee and student health, and minimize long-term liability. This experience has provided Clean Air Company with the specialized knowledge needed to design a wood dust collection system optimized for your requirements, from miter and table saw dust collection to chop saw, planer, jointer, router table dust collection, and more. We’ll begin designing your wood dust collection system by establishing the air volume requirements for each of the tools in your shop. Taking air volume requirements into account ensures that the wood dust generated in your shop will be captured and conveyed to the dust collector without first settling in the duct system, where it can pose a safety hazard. Our technicians integrate their comprehensive understanding of NFPA 664 and 652 into the wood dust collection system design, enabling them to mitigate all fire and explosion hazards. We have the knowledge and insight to understand your facility’s needs and determine which features are best integrated into your wood dust collector. Available features include a spark detection system, isolation gates, an abort gate, electrical grounding and bonding, explosive relief panels, spark suppression, an air material separator, start and stop controls, and a safety after filter.
Wood Shop Dust Collection Systems Design
Customized to Your Woodworking Applications
The Clean Air Company does a complete evaluation of the types of dust generated in your wood shop so we can engineer the most effective workshop dust extraction system for your needs. While many woodworking tools generate wood dust, they vary in the specific type of dust generated. To be effective, your wood dust collection system needs to be designed to handle the kind of dust generated in your woodworking facility. The most common and least expensive wood dust collection device is a cyclone dust collection system. A cyclone dust collector requires no maintenance, cleaning controls, or filter replacements. Although the larger wood dust particles generated by routing or drilling tools are less susceptible to explosion than smaller particles are, this type of wood dust can damage dust collection system filters upon high-velocity impact, making them best separated by a cyclone or other pre-separating device. Sanding tools create an extremely fine, powdery wood dust, which is more susceptible to explosion than larger dust particles. Devices best collect fine wood dust with high filtration efficiencies, such as bag house collectors, cartridge collectors, or shaker bag collectors. These dust collectors are also a great solution when you need clean Air to be returned indoors after filtration.
Dust Collection System Service and Maintenance
Clean Air Company offers maintenance and service contracts to ensure your dust collection system runs efficiently and to extend its life. We can tailor a service agreement for your dust collector to your specific needs. Our maintenance agreements include an annual 52-point checkup to keep your system running smoothly and prevent shutdowns that cost you time and money. With access to a large selection of top brands, we can provide and install replacement parts for your existing dust collection system.
