DualDraw Downdraft Tables for Combustible Dust Collection are designed to capture hazardous combustible dust, including aluminum dust, in a cost-effective, easy-to-maintain manner. For the industrial dust extraction system line, we start with the look and feel of the BG Series with its signature vented back stop and downdraft design. Using design guidelines as outlined in the NFPA Combustible Dust standards such as NFPA 484, 654, and 664, our downdraft solutions are then configured specifically to help customers address the hazardous and often costly process of containing airborne combustible dust.
How to most cost-effectively and safely contain combustible dust is an often-debated topic. Regulations vary widely depending on where in the world your facility may have its physical address. Enforcement agencies often provide conflicting guidance on the best approach to control dust hazards. Regardless of the confusion surrounding its regulation, the fact remains that airborne combustible dust is extremely dangerous when left unaddressed and that many lives have been lost from explosions directly related to its presence.
What is the DualDraw approach? Our non-spark design and compact air filter area on each industrial dust extractor significantly mitigate the hazard associated with combustible dust. Additionally, our careful selection of the proper air filter type based on the details of a customer’s particular application is critical. Finally, we consult closely with our customers to ensure there is a solid understanding of what is involved in owning a combustible dust (like aluminum) collector. For example, customers must have a clear hazard communication program and establish rigorous housekeeping routines to ensure industrial dust extraction systems are kept in optimal condition with no possibility of fugitive dust build-up.
Our patented designs, combined with specific operational protocols, is how many DualDraw customers are currently safely addressing their combustible dust hazards. See below for some of our more popular industrial dust extraction system models and some details about available accessories and options.
