Manufacturing in many cases requires large pieces of equipment that may generate large amounts of particulate during their operation. This is especially true for milling, grinding and cutting machinery. While many of these systems may have some general duty dust collection equipment, fine, airborne particulate may float in the air and land on the various parts and other equipment located in the manufacturing operation.
Fine metal, plastic or wood particles that are sub-micron in size ( not visible to the naked eye ) can get inside areas of a part like threads, gasketed connections, glass layers or liquid containers prior to being filled. Over time these particles will affect the quality and potential performance of the part or parts that are being manufactured.
Pure Air Systems, a manufacturer of commercial grade HEPA based air filtration systems, has been installing their fan powered multi-stage equipment in commercial and institutional facilities since 1985. These fan powered units can be used in either as stand-alone units or configured to attach to existing HVAC units.
The PAS systems can move up to 2,000 CFM and can be ducted to a hood that is located either over the manufacturing process or using close capture hooding for best reduction/removal of the small sub-micron airborne particulate. Over the past 37 years PAS has installed many of these systems in similar applications with the end result being a greater production rate with fewer rejects and part returns.
