If your shop does work that causes a lot of dust and hazardous particles to become airborne, a good dust collection system is a good investment. Dust collection will make the workspace safer and provide cleaner air for you and your employees to breather. There is going to be some work that needs to be done to prepare your shop for dust collector installation. The following dust collector installation guide will help you prepare your shop and equipment:
1. Decide on The Type of Dust Collector Equipment You Need to be Installed in Your Shop
The first thing that you need to do is decide on the type of dust collection system you need for your business. Do you need a system that only removed dust particles from the air, or do you need a system that also filters air to remove hazardous fumes? Talk with the dust collector installation service about the needs of your business and choosing the best system for your shop.
2. Adapt Existing Equipment and Tools with Dust Collecting Apparatus to Collect Particles
The equipment in your business will need to be adapted to collect the dust that is produced. If the equipment was not designed to have dust collection, you may want to work with the installation contractor to design apparatuses that are specially designed for the dust collection needs of your shop.
3. Install the Dust Collection Duct Tubes to Go from Your Equipment to The Air Filter or Purifier
The duct tubes are an important component of your duct collection system. These are tubes that go from the dust collection apparatus of equipment to the dust collection and air purification system. If you have a lot of duct tubes to install, it is usually better to have the dust collector install the tubes when the unit is installed in your shop.
4. Choosing the Type of Dust Filter or Air Purification System You Need and Installing It In Your Shop
The last step in the process will be to install the right dust or air filter units for your system. These are usually systems that are a combination of the collection unit and air purification system. If the system is connected to HVAC it will purify the air before it is circulated back into your business through the ductwork.
