Ezi-Duct supplied a new dust extraction system for installation at a large NSW South Coast joinery company.
The Polex dust extraction system produces over 40,000m³/h @ 3500 Pa of suction and has 200 filter bags, which are automatically and continually cleaned with a reverse pulse of clean dry compressed air to ensure the unit is running efficiently all the time.
Key features of these dust collectors include a high efficiency fan motor (45 kW) adjusted by a VSD fitted into the unit’s control panel for significant energy savings; and two bins of 3m³ capacity for the waste to be dropped into via two rotary valves. The dust collector does not need to be shut down when the bins are being emptied, ensuring continuous operation.
Several machines including two CNCs, a large wide belt sander, a large edge bander and many smaller machines are connected to the dust extraction system.
Ezi-Duct’s Wayne Dockrill says that their dust collection equipment leads the Australian market on several aspects including economical pricing, energy efficiency, wide product range, advantage of Australian engineering and manufacturing, support of experienced and qualified people with branches in three states, sufficient stock, and customisation options.
