The US Duct spark trap continues to attract attention.
The simple and yet effective design, coupled with its rugged construction, offers the seller and their customers a cost effective solution to a growing problem.
(WHAT?! You’re just learning that we offer a Spark Trap? Read the full story on US Duct Spark Trap.)
And of course, as it has attracted attention, there have been requests to expand and add to the spark trap product offering.
All spark traps are designed with the idea of providing a ‘tortured path’ for the spark to travel. The retention of the spark in the trap gives potential for settling of dust within the trap in heavier dust loading applications. Therefore it is not surprising we’ve had requests to make provision for applications with large amounts of grinding dust. The retention of the spark in the trap gives potential for settling of dust within the trap in heavier dust loading applications.
To accommodate this we have added clean-out doors as A STANDARD to ALL spark traps. Going one step further, US Duct is now offering a version of the spark trap with a drop out tube (see below).
This tube is connected to the unit with a double ‘boot tap’ to create a funnel. Any settling dust falls into the tube and then into a container below the spark trap. The container must be sealed. This has proven to be a great solution for applications such as, shot blasting, heavy grinding, and ovens.
Does it work?! Our Customers Say It Best
I was surprised at how much grit was in the bucket. There’s a Grecon system just past the trap & it has not activated. Running about two months. -Val Argyle, Engineered Air Systems
