BAGHOUSES / FILTERS

Commonly known as baghouses or fabric collectors, these units are used to separate dust particles from conveying air. These efficient, cost-effective dust collectors can achieve a collection efficiency of more than 99%.

Name Brands: Airlanco, MAC, Moldow, Pneumafil, Donaldson, Camfil Farr, and Sly

EXHAUST FAN / BLOWERS

The fan and motor system supplies mechanical energy to move contaminated air from the dust-producing source to a dust collector.

Name Brands: AirPro, Alphair, Blower Application Co., Cincinnati, Fan Equipment Co., IAP, and New York Blower

AIR CONVEYORS

Conveying systems are used widespread across a range of businesses. There are a variety of options available which can be equipped to fit specific needs.

AUTOMATIC BLAST GATES

Blast gates are used to focus a dust collection system's vacuum for maximum extraction at the desired location. Blast gates are positioned at individual pieces of machinery. When one blast gate is opened, all available suction is focused at that location, maximizing the amount of material collected.

CYCLONES

Centrifugal collectors use cyclonic action to separate dust particles from the gas stream. In a typical cyclone, the dust gas stream enters at an angle and is spun rapidly. The centrifugal force created by the circular flow throws the dust particles outward to the wall of the cyclone. Cyclonic action spins these particles down and out of cyclone tail pipe.

Types include single-cyclone and multi-cyclone separators.

DUCTWORK / PIPING

Ducts are used to supply and/or exhaust air in wood related applications. A duct system is custom designed, fabricated and installed for specific applications. Ducts are fabricated of galvanized, stainless steel or hot rolled sheet metal. 

Connection joints are installed using angle flanged and/or the recently introduced leaver lock clamps.

HOGS / CHIPPERS

Chipper shredders, grinders and hogs are used for waste size reduction.

PLENUMS

Plenums provide trouble free extraction of very large quantities of dust and chips with unlimited volumes of extracted air. Normally suspended from a ceiling, the plenum allows for easy expansion and reconfiguring.

Name Brand(s): Moldow

TRM FILTERS

Developed in 1991 by Air Craftsmen, Inc., with its low noise - low horsepower and large filtering capacity, we call it the “Biggest Little Filter on the Market.” The filter is available in various modules depending on air volume requirements. Unit may be supplied with or without exhaust blower and motor. Waste is deposited in heavy-duty plastic bags (2 per section) for easy disposal. Waste container bags may be reused. Key Benefits include: high efficiency low air to cloth ratio and environmentally clean, separating 99.9% of particles.

BALERS

Conveying systems are used widespread across a range of businesses. There are a variety of options available which can be equipped to fit specific needs.

Commonly known as baghouses or fabric collectors, these units are used to separate dust particles from conveying air. These efficient, cost-effective dust collectors can achieve a collection efficiency of more than 99%.

Name Brands: Airlanco, MAC, Moldow, Pneumafil, Donaldson, Camfil Farr, and Sly

Balers are typically used to compact waste material such as paper, plastic, corrugated and aluminum. Balers are made with hydraulic rams to compress the material. Balers range from simple, closed-door manual tie to complex, highly automated units. Balers are used in facilities generating volumes of waste requiring proper disposal. Baled waste is typically sold to recycling companies.
Air Craftsmen, Inc. is a distributor for BaleMasters.

COMPACTOR

A compactor is used to reduce the size of waste material through compaction. Powered by hydraulics, compactors take many shapes and sizes. Compactors are hydraulically powered with sliding rams, which sweep the collection hopper and deposit material into a waste holding tank.

CHOPPER FANS / TRIM CUTTERS

Chopper fans have sharpened impeller blades. They cut or tear material as it is drawn through the blower. Chopper fans are required for continuous trim that is easily torn and for discontinuous strands and loose pieces of material that need to be reduced in size. Ideal applications include paperboard, floor mat trim and scrap aluminum, among hundreds of others.

PAC chopper fans may be customized with non-stick coatings, corrosion-resistant materials and sound attenuation devices.

CYCLONES

Centrifugal collectors use cyclonic action to separate dust particles from the gas stream. In a typical cyclone, the dust gas stream enters at an angle and is spun rapidly. The centrifugal force created by the circular flow throws the dust particles outward to the wall of the cyclone. Cyclonic action spins these particles down and out of cyclone tail pipe.

Connection joints are installed using angle flanged and/or the recently introduced leaver lock clamps.

Name Brands: AirPro, Alphair, Blower Application Co., Cincinnati, Fan Equipment Co., IAP, and New York Blower

Floor sweeps are used when bulk material needs to be removed from an area, such as a stripping station, or for clean up in and around baler rooms or Flexo machines.

SHREDDERS

SEPARATORS

TRM FILTERS

Shredder applications include reduction of paper/corrugated waste. Compared to loose waste, baled waste from a shredder has a quicker payback cycle. Various sized units are available for hard-to-process types of waste materials, for example cardboard cores.

Name Brand(s): Blower Application Co.; Vecoplan; or floor sweep shredders

Separators are available in various sizes, depending on the required waste exhaust volume.  Normally these units are located above balers or compactors for discharging waste for compaction and ease of disposal. Applications include corrugated and paper trim.
