Large Energy Efficient Dust Extraction System installed in NSW South Coast joinery works.

A large south Coast joinery recently installed a Energy Efficient Polex / Ezi-Duct Dust Extraction System. The new Dust Collector produces over 40,000 m3 /h @ 3500 Pa of suction and has 200 filter bags. The filter bags are automatically & continually cleaned with a reverse pulse of clean dry compressed air to ensure the unit is running efficiently all the time.

The Dust Collectors high efficiency fan motor ( 45 kW) is adjusted by a VSD fitted into the units control panel. The VSD tells the 45kW motor when machine is shut off ( using Ezi-Duct Dampers) and the motor will use less power. This equates to huge energy savings.

The Dust Collector drops the waste into 2 x 3 m3 bins via 2 Rotary Valves. The unit does not need to be shut down while the bins are emptied and stop the factory from working. Many machines are connected to the system including 2 x CNC 's, a large wide belt sander, a large edge bander and many smaller machines.

Buy Australian Manufactured Goods

If we as a nation will not support our local manufactures then the Australian manufacturing industry will be doomed. Australia will loose 100m,000's of skilled jobs such as tradesman and engineers. And as Australian Manufactuerers it would be hypocritical for us not to buy Australian. We must support one another to ensure our survival.
