A Better Industrial Spark Trap Solution

We’ve had a number of conversations of late with customers about the need for a better Industrial Spark Trap solution for dealing with welding, grinding, and cutting table sparks. We made one, a real spark trap — affordable, effective, and unique.

When you compare spark traps, you’ll learn the difference is on the INSIDE!



Why Do You Need a Spark Trap?

Sparks cause fires. Fires cost money, create high insurance premiums and sleepless nights. For those reasons, millions of dollars are spent each year in expensive spark detection and extinguishing systems, and when you have a lot of combustible material in the air stream — those systems are the best way to go. However, when your application is more related to sparks from metal grinding, cutting tables, or welding — a spark trap is a great option…as long as it’s the right industrial spark trap.

Why Is Ours so Effective?

All spark traps aren’t created equal. Looking inside, the problem with most spark traps is they simply swirl the air. Many forget that the ember travels with the air, with a relative velocity of zero.

That isn’t a problem anymore with US Duct’s industrial spark trap. Its patented technology “tumbles” the ember through a “Tortuous Path” forcing contact with more oxygen and allowing more time for the spark to burn out. Because of the custom cone and the outlet inset design, our spark trap effectively eliminates sparks before they can exit the trap, and thus, it can be installed right at the dust collector, adding convenience and eliminating distance requirements!

Once extinguished, the bigger pieces of debris fall to the bottom of the trap and exit through a dropout chamber. Spark problem solved!
