Finding the Right Bin Vent Dust Collector

By Downdraft Table, Dust Collection, Mist Collector, SD23, Uncategorized

In modern industry and manufacturing, controlling the quality of the air that employees are exposed to is very important. That is why it is critical to consider the value of a bin vent dust collector. These innovative and unique types of dust collection systems are built with an abrasive inlet that features a heavy-duty impact plate type component. In effect, this causes dust particles to be forced down directly into the hopper. As a result, only fine dust is ultimately drawn into the systems cartridges. This is a highly effective way of managing and controlling a wide range of airborne particulates and dust.

Powder Coating All Equipment Component

Ultimately, when the dust load is reduced, system filters will last much longer. This is intended to save businesses money over the short and long-term. Best of all, there is no need to use expensive additional equipment to accomplish the goal of improving air quality. When choosing the right bin vent dust collector system, always go with a system that is designed to be heavy-duty. This includes a construction process that uses heavy gauge materials. It also involves powder coating all equipment components, resulting in maximum levels of durability both inside and outside of the unit. Attention to detail when designing and building these units is absolutely essential. While there are many companies that offer bin vent dust collectors, one company has continued to outpace the competition when it comes to high-quality products at highly competitive prices.

Downdraft Table SD23 Case Study

Superior Air Model SD23 Dry Cartridge Style Downdraft Table

Application:  Grinding and Debur of Composite rubber coating on electric motors

Superior Air Products received a call from a potential customer inquiring about our self-cleaning, high efficiency downdraft tables for a dry dust.  The end user was currently using a competitor’s downdraft table (Grizzly brand) that was geared more towards woodworking and home use than heavy industrial use.  The client was happy with the suction on the table, however the competitors unit was not stopping the dust in the filters and instead dust was being blown through the filters and back all over their shop.

While the application of deburring and grinding on encapsulated motor windings involved a tremendous amount of fine dust, we explained that some tables are not meant for use in high production and very fine dust loading, but that our tables would work very well because of our design and the use of nanofiber self cleaning cartridge filters.  The nanofiber is the highest efficiency self-cleaning filter available on the market at MERV 15 or 99.97% efficient down to 0.3 microns.  If you are not familiar with microns, smoke is normally in the 0.3-0.8 micron range.  Any sort of dust will typically be above 1 micron, so when we use these filters, we are nearing 100% efficiency.

The customer was excited to see the unit perform with his exact parts, so samples were sent in and can be seen on the attached video.  You will see that we are capturing all the dust with no dust emissions on the exhaust.  As with every Superior Brand product, we offered the customer a money back guarantee and they are now a very happy Superior Air Products customer.

How the Downdraft Table Operates

Superior utilizes a direct drive high capacity blower wheel to produce 300 feet per minute of downdraft velocity (much higher than required by OSHA).  All dust is drawn down into the unit through a fiberglass grate, through a series of spark baffles and finally into the fire retardant nanofiber filters.  During operation, the self cleaning filters use compressed air to dump the dust captured into an easily removable dust drawer that should be emptied daily.  Typically the filter in this unit is replaced annually on a one-shift operation.  List price on this particular filter is $105, so the annual cost of operation is only $105 plus the cost of electricity to power the ¾ HP motor blower, resulting in an extremely low cost of ownership.
