Australian Dust Control Pty Ltd
recently designed, supplied, installed and commissioned the dust extraction system at The Forest High School on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Australian Dust Control had earlier worked with The Forest High School in 2009 to upgrade the ductwork of an existing dust extraction unit that serviced three classrooms with only one classroom being operational at any one time.
Recently The Forest High School contacted Australian Dust Control to upgrade their dust extraction system for all three woodworking rooms. While the existing dust extraction unit was left to service the first room, two additional S20 dust extraction systems were installed by Australian Dust Control in the other classrooms by modifying the duct layout in each room to work with the unit for that room.
Following the installation, each woodworking room now has its own dust extraction unit, allowing all three rooms to be operational at the same time.
The S20 dust extraction systems installed at The Forest High School use filter bags as the filtration media with a shaker motor as the cleaning mechanism. The cleaning cycle is carried out every four hours.
Australian Dust Control’s dust extraction systems are designed to capture, transport and collect dust particles to improve the breathable air quality and safety. The dust particles are collected via an extraction hood at the source of the dust and transported through the ductwork to the dust extraction filter via the extraction fan, where they are filtered and discharged into a waste collection point.
Many schools across Australia have taken advantage of recent Government funding to upgrade their existing dust and fume extraction systems in woodworking classrooms, welding workshops and fine arts departments.
