Dust From Sanding Wood
Problem: Builder of ocean-going yachts generates a large amount of dust when sanding hardwood bulkhead panels and cabinetry. Dust was migrating throughout the woodshop, creating an unsightly and unhealthy environment. The pieces being sanded required a source capture zone of 10' by 12', so downdraft tables were not practical.
Solution: Power Booth Modules were installed and enhanced with regaining air plenums to help contain and collect the dust, as well as to protect the operators' breathing zones. With automatic vibra-pulse cleaning of the dust filters, the system required minimal maintenance and successfully improved the working environment in the woodshop.
Equipment: (2) PB Power Booth Dust Collection Modules; (2) Custom Regain Air Plenums
