There are numerous reasons why controlling air flow is critical to the performance of a dust collection system.
- Maximize the power of a fan by only directing air where you need it at any given time. As your system grows and needs to services more machines and pick-u points, you may be considering the need for a more powerful or additional fan. However, before you do, evaluate the system and determine of you can redirect or shut-off portions of the system to allow the fan to continue to provide adequate CFM.
- Cutting off air to idle machines. There is no need to waste air when a machine isn’t operating. Using cut-offs, gates or diverter valves(manual or automatic) can eliminate air loss and redirect air to where you need it, keeping CFM high and saving money.
- Venting changes. Seasonal changes or operational variances may require a change in air flow pattern or route. Don’t miss the opportunity to manage the flow based on your changing needs.
