Australian Dust Control was commissioned by Rose bank College, a school at Five Dock in Sydney, to install a shaker dust collector for their woodworking workshop. Australian Dust Control is recognised as the manufacturer of energy efficient dust collectors at competitive prices.
Australian Dust Control was able to comply with the strict criteria that were put forward by the school in their selection process. For the school, Australian Dust Control designed, manufactured and installed a shaker dust collector with a 5.5kw fan.
There were certain constraints that Australian Dust Control had to work with in their design and installation. For example, the workshop area at the school allowed only a very small floor space for the shaker dust collector to be installed. Also, low noise during the operation of the shaker dust collector was a requirement so as not to create an impact on nearby classrooms and neighbouring properties.
Australian Dust Control addressed these problems by designing a compact shaker dust collector which was fitted with an acoustic enclosure, therefore minimising any noise during the operation of the dust collector.
The woodworking workshop at the school consisted of 7 machines including a lathe, a bench saw, spindle as well as various other saws. The waste produced during the operation of these machines discharges directly from the shaker dust collector to an 80 litre waste bin.
Australian Dust Control is expanding its installation of dust collector systems into many schools around Australia. The dust collector, with its flexible design and wide range of options, is able to meet the strict OH&S regulations.
