Which collector do I need?
How do I know which dust collector system is best for me?
Identifying an appropriate dust collector or dust collection system is complicated when considering all the variables within a manufacturing environment, as well as any regulations that need to be followed.
A Filter Technologies sales representative will assist you with a complete evaluation of your needs. However, you can start by answering the questions below.
- Application and Dust Type? (see Application List)
- Is your collector going to be located indoor or outdoor?
- What is your contaminant–Dust, Mist, Fume?
- Additional Operation Considerations?
- Hours per day your operation runs?
- Existing system or preferred collector?
- Estimated airflow to the collector (per CFM)?
- Transfer points and ventilation?
- Collection cycle continuous or intermittent?
- Compressed air available (90 psi) to pulse clean filters?
