Ezi-Duct completed the installation of a dust collection system recently
at the Melbourne factory of a large multinational company.
Located in the South Eastern Melbourne suburb of Dandenong, the new
factory offers a wide range of rolled and extruded aluminium products, cut to
size to the Victorian market. Seeking a powerful and efficient system that could
collect aluminium waste from the production process, the factory had an MDC
12,000 P dust collector from Ezi-Duct installed in the facility.
Ezi-Duct’s MDC 12,000 P is a fully automatic self cleaning dust
collector that uses a pulse of compressed air to automatically clean its many
filter bags. The dust collector automatically deposits the aluminium swarf
waste directly into a 3m¬≥ waste bin via an Ezi-Duct rotary valve.
Operating under negative pressure, the dust collector ensures no waste
or dirty air passes through the unit’s high-efficiency 15kW fan. Manufactured
in Australia in Ezi-Duct’s Sydney manufacturing facility, the dust collector is
constructed from robust corrosion resistant galvanised steel sheet. For the
Dandenong factory installation, the dust collector was connected to the machine
using Ezi-Duct modular ducting.
Ezi-Duct modular ducting bends feature a pressed construction up to
300mm in diameter to ensure smooth and snag-free airflow. Designed to simply
clamp together, Ezi-Duct modular ducting reduces installation time by half, and
also offers the customer the flexibility to easily move or modify the ductwork,
or pull it apart to remove a trapped rag or object in the ductwork.
Ezi-Duct is a leading Australian company
specialising in the manufacture and supply of dust collectors and fume extraction
equipment, with branches in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
