An SAF is a good choice in many circumstances due to the variety of ways it can be used in a facility. Critical to the success of the system is how the hazard is addressed at its source. For this reason, working closely with the DualDraw technical sales team is important. While we have standard SAF product offerings that fit most applications, we also frequently engineer customized systems that specifically address the sources of concern within a customer’s facility.
Some of our engineered SAF systems are designed to provide filtration to numerous locations throughout a facility and need to take into account various customer-provided industrial ventilation engineering principles. DualDraw works with customers to receive necessary inputs to finalize designs and ensure system effectiveness.
A popular option on the smaller, more mobile-friendly SAF systems is the addition of heavy-duty caster wheels and an extraction arm. Articulating arms are a straight-forward way to address an application that may not lend itself to a downdraft table or otherwise be challenging to apply source capture methods to the emission source. The addition of an arm also works well if the SAF will be applied throughout a work day to various dust or fume producing applications located throughout a facility. Arms can be specified in different sizes to accommodate customer requirements.
Each unit comes equipped with a differential pressure gauge to help operators identify when a filter change is necessary. The SAF is simple to maintain with easily accessible clean out areas and hand-accessed filter compartments.
