Central Welding Smoke Collector With Variable Frequency Drive
Problem: Trailer accessories manufacturer needed a user-friendly, cost-effective system to replace several dust collectors in the multi-station welding shop.
Solution: Installation of a central dust collector with automatic dampers and a variable frequency drive. Maintenance can now access the dust collector from the ground, and the variable frequency drive makes the fan quieter, the duct runs smaller, and the energy usage more efficient. The system ramps up and down on demand as the dampers open and close automatically at each welder. On average HP usage is 10 HP with a 20 HP fan.
Equipment: (1) B16 Central Dust Collector; (1) TEV Fan; (1) Variable Frequency Drive
