ACE DUST COLLECTORS
ACE dust collector systems are designed for the removal of dust and dirt particles created while blasting within a cabinet. In operation, the collector draws dust and dirty air from the cabinet into the canister, where the heavier particles are deposited into the bottom of the housing. The air is drawn through the filter, which removes the finer dust particles. Filtered air is returned to the room. The dust collector you choose should match the work that you're doing at your facility.
Keep in mind that blast cleaning is, by its very nature, a dusty process and the primary function of the dust collector is to maintain visibility while blasting by exchanging the air in the cabinet. To maintain this level of visibility, a dust collector should provide 6 to 8 air changes per minute. ACE’s cartridge style dust collector filters are 99.98% efficient, filtering .5 micron particles.
Primary considerations in choosing the right dust collector include noise, usage frequency, cost, maintenance, filtration, and operating area (how large, how clean, how humid and what sort of ventilation is available.)
For high volume production work, we recommend the use of a reclaim system. The ACE abrasive reclaim system provides the removal of dust and dirt like a dust collector while also centrifugally separating broken down blast media, dust and foreign material from usable blast media, utilizing a direct drive pressure blower. This allows for less media waste and prolonged media life. Reclaim systems require the addition of a pickup tube to the cabinet hopper.
