How to Maximize the Energy Efficiency of Your Dust Collection or Air Filtration System

The heart of the IVEC System is the Intelligent Control Panel which adjusts the blower speed as needed. The conventional collector sizes the fan to guarantee performance in the "worst case" scenario, such as when experiencing duct pressure losses, clogged filters, and all ports fully open. But with the Industrial Ventilation Energy Control System, the fan speed can be controlled to use only the exact energy needed to do the job, including in the "best case" when the filters are clean and when only a portion of the workstations and duct system is in use. The IVEC System typically requires smaller duct runs and includes dampers that automatically close and open on demand at each workstation. 

The comprehensive approach of an air filtration energy control system sets it apart from those who merely provide the component parts without the critical system integration. The professionals from Hastings Air Energy Control combine the use of a Programmed Logic Controller with powered dampers and duct pressure transducers to manage the systems so they respond to the changing process without much input from operators. In this way, the focus of the worker can remain dedicated to the manufacturing process while the air cleaning equipment is functioning responsively at peak efficiency. Hastings Air Energy Control has invested many hours of specialized programming so that every client can share in the benefit of the unique IVEC System, thereby providing a great value and long-term energy savings for those who are doing their part to make energy conservation a priority.

IVEC maximizes energy efficiencies and minimizes energy use. Total system management and real-time operating reports are provided to management via a network of sensors, dampers, and controls. Added benefits include noise reduction, constant predetermined pressure, extended filter life, and longer intervals between maintenance. The result is enhanced ventilation performance and electric consumption that is reduced by . as much as 70%! Read our Retrofit Literature.

How Dust Collection Controllers Work 

Dust Collection Controls are intelligent systems used to monitor and control all types of industrial air purifiers, dust collectors, and mist filtration systems.

Benefits of dust collection controllers include:

  • maximized energy efficiency
  • ventilation on-demand
  • streamlined worker processes
  • easy expandability
  • significant reductions in filter and equipment wear

The IVEC® Intelligent Ventilation Energy Control system can work with the ventilation system that your company already has, turning the equipment on and off as needed, and allocating only the necessary power. It’s easily expandable, able to add new drops at any time, and grow as your company grows or changes. As a result, you lower your operating costs, saving thousands of dollars in energy and utilities each month.

Companies like Boehm-Madisen, Mercury Marine, Halcon Corporation, and others have already added the IVEC® Intelligent Ventilation Energy Control systems to their facilities to save money and become more efficient.

As the word “controller” implies, "Dust Collection Controllers" manage the dust collection process to reach total system efficiency by regulating the power each collector uses. Conventional systems run at peak power throughout each shift, constantly drawing maximum power, and racking up significant operating expenses in the process.

In contrast, IVEC® is an intelligent controller. It senses the ventilation need at any given time and allocates the exact amount of power to fill that need. Without IVEC®, your process ventilation system burns through money and resources every minute.

There’s more to IVEC® than just intelligent ventilation control. IVEC® was developed with the advisory assistance of Hastings Air Energy Control, Inc., a company with over 50 years in the dust collection and mist filtration business. Working in tandem with Hastings, the IVEC® Systems Team studied the needs of the industry and included more money-saving and environmentally-focused features than any other company in the industry today.


Not only does IVEC technology save you money, but we’ll also help you apply for federal, state, and local grants and subsidies to offset your costs even further. The IVEC® Grants and Incentives Team helps customers navigate the complex maze of requirements to qualify for assistance in your local area. When you choose IVEC® you not only receive significant energy savings, you also get five-star customer support built around making the most of your investment.
