Wet Dust Collectors

Wet Dust Collectors for Fine Metal Dust

Grinding, sanding, deburring and polishing aluminum or titanium creates fine metal dust in your facility.  This mine metal dust presents not only a health hazard to employees but a potential explosion hazard in your plant.  The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 484 has established standards that OSHA has adopted for the control of metal dusts.

Wet Central Collector

The Filter 1 Hydrotron Dust Collector is specifically designed for capture of fine metal particles. The HWF series is a safe and economic method of cleaning these potentially volatile materials. With air volumes between 500 CFM and 5,000 CFM, the units can be connected via ductwork to the dust generating machines for source capture. This water filter collector meets OSHA and NFPA regulations for dust collectors located inside the building.

Wet Booth Collector

Booth collectors provide a large open area to provide a push-pull ventilation system to contain potentially explosive contaminated air.  Common dust collection applications include grinding aluminum, titanium, and explosive aerospace composites.  The booth itself allows more freedom of work space while the wet collection process eliminates potentially catastrophic explosions associated with collecting the fine particulates.  Booths are customizable to suite your needs and have multiple accessories to choose from including crane slots, enclosed lights, regain air diffusers and sludge conveyers.
