A 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 portable filtration systems 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 filter 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 air filtration to numerous locations throughout a facility, including open spaces such as a work cell or a conference room, 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 the effectiveness of the portable dust collection systems.
A popular option on the smaller, more mobile-friendly SAF systems is the addition of heavy-duty caster wheels to allow for maximum versatility. Or, adding an articulating extraction arm is 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 a fume extraction arm also works well if the portable filtration systems will be applied throughout a work day to various hazard producing applications located throughout a facility. Extraction arms for portable collectors can be specified in different sizes to accommodate customer requirements.
Each unit comes equipped with a differential pressure gauge to help personnel identify when a filter change is necessary. Portable dust collection systems are simple to maintain with easily accessible clean out areas and hand-accessed filtration compartments.
