The well designed and engineered ducting system is a key part of an efficient and sustainable dust extraction system. There are numerous elements that need to be considered before installation of a ducting onto a dust extraction system.
A ducting system can be connected to numerous hoods, machines or conveyors and a well-engineered system is crucial.
Important requirements for a Ducting system
- The duct velocity and volume (how fast the air is moving through the ducting)
- The static pressure within the duct (Pa),
- Ducting material (what the ducting is made from)
- The dust or products that are being collected (eg. Timber, Coal, Silica, Paint)
Some common problems for systems that have not been designed properly are blockages, generation of static electricity, dust collector underperforming, fan over performing and many more.
