Fight fumes and dust with a DustKart
A common problem in many manufacturing plants is the nuisance of dust from bag tipping, filling or other infrequent sources of dust into the factory. It may not be often enough to justify a complete centralised dust extraction system, but it requires (for Health & Safety as well as good housekeeping), an effective solution.
To fill this need, NZ DUCT+FLEX have received the first shipment of ‘DustKart’ mobile filter units with the added advantage of pulsed air cleaning for the integrated filter.
The DustKart has a three-stage filtration system: metal mesh pre-filter, a cartridge filter which can be fitted with range of cartridge types to suit welding, grinding, polishing or a wide range of other dusts in small to medium quantities. These are collected in a bottom mounted dust drawer which is easily accessed and emptied. The third filter is an activated carbon filter at the outlet.
The unit requires three-phase supply but is moved into position readily with the castors (two lockable) and two 160mm dia x three-metre reach fume arms (purchased separately) to provide 2000m³/h i.e. 1000m³ at each hood. The powder coated unit is very durable and designed for continuous operation where constant exhaust is required.
The DustKart is only 1188mm high, 862mm wide and 1351mm deep so is easily accommodated in any workshop.
The fume arms available for NZ DUCT+FLEX have external hinging for lower maintenance and ease to manoeuvre i.e. the hinges do not get clogged with the debris and jam eventually rendering them difficult to position, the hoods are metal and the allround grab handle means they can be easily adjusted to operate effectively drawing fumes away from the welder without getting in his way – unlike static hoods which are often above the welders head and only remove the fumes after the employee had breathed them in.
The DustKart is made in Europe by the same supplier as NZ Duct & Flex’s popular ‘Fume Cube” and Fume Arm range.
