Over the years of evaluating existing dust collection systems and providing new designs it has been painfully obvious that “dust collection” is misunderstood and basically “dirty-words” to most facilities and maintenance personnel. Often these ineffective and frustrating systems have wasted tens-of-thousands of precious dollars and become an ever-increasing maintenance headache and money-pit. Also, with the recent emphasis on the very real hazards of combustible dusts, the need for effective and reliable dust collection systems is more important than ever.

Effective dust collection systems can be achieved, and maintained, by following basic essentials in their creation, design, purchases, installation, operation, and maintenance. These essentials for an effective dust collection system are based upon 43+ years of experience and working with, literally, thousands of systems. Whether your system is new or existing the presented essentials will prove beneficial. Even existing, poorly performing, systems can be improved using the information provided.
