Smoke Filters & Dust Collectors for Metal Sawing, Plasma & Laser Saws
Metal cutting by sawing is most frequently handled with mechanical air filtration systems. These air purification units utilize disposable media filters and mist impingers to remove the fine metal chips, dust and coolant that would otherwise become airborne. AQE offers a wide range of media air filtration units that can be configured with a wide selection of filters to accommodate your specific application and provide maximum filter life. Our dust collectors can be floor mounted, ceiling mounted or portable for use with multiple stations. Motor and blower packages are upgradeable to meet your individual demands. Consult with an air quality professional for assistance in selecting the model and configuration that best meets your needs.
Dust Collectors for Metal Cutting by plasma or laser:
Plasma and laser cutting tables can be particularly difficult applications. Plasma and laser cutting applications generate enormous amounts of contaminant and the contaminant generated is frequently submicron in size. Due to the high amounts of fine dust generated by this process, reverse pulse dust collectors are recommended for this application. Electrostatic precipitators or disposable media filter systems will result impractically high maintenance or frequent filter replacements unless used only to supplement another dust collector system. Air Filtration System like our model AQE4000 dust collector is the only recommended solution for this application and must still be carefully sized to insure proper function and cost effectiveness.
