Sydney Metal Fabrications was tasked with the installation of a Camfil Farr dust extraction system at Redback Boots along with a cyclone system.
Redback Boots is a 4th generation boot making company manufacturing high quality specialist boots for industry applications around the world.
The Camfil Farr dust extraction system was designed to extract the dust created from the grinding of the soles of the boots in addition to removing the fine cotton string components from the polishing mops.
There was also the additional problem of risk of fire caused by sparks from the grinding of nails on the boots, which needed to be addressed at the same time.
Sydney Metal Fabrications designed and manufactured five individual cyclones (one on each station) with a common duct going into a Camfil Farr dust extraction system. The dust extraction system contains a spark arrestor and explosion vent, which safeguard against the risk of fire.
Sydney Metal Fabrications was engaged recently to upgrade the dust extraction system with the installation of inspection doors on all five cyclones.
