The DC-series high-volume dust collection system from Airflow Systems Inc. provides facility-wide collection and high-efficiency filtration of airborne dusts generated during bulk material processing and packaging operations. The system’s seam-welded panels prevent filter bypass and the escape of dirty air back into the facility. The units in the series offer airflow levels ranging from 600 to 6,800 cfm. The direct-drive motor/blower design eliminates the need for drive belt replacement, reducing maintenance downtime and costs. More efficient than constant-speed blower designs, the available variable-frequency drive blower, reduces total in-use power consumption by modulating fan speed while maintaining the required static pressure during an application’s fluctuating power needs.

The company’s Vibra-Pulse filter cleaning system extends filter life and reduces replacement costs by combining compressed air and a high-pressure, random-motion impactor hose to knock dirt out from deep within the filter pleats.
