Fight fumes and dust with a DustKart

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

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.
