Industrial Air Cleaners
Air Filter Units for Industrial & Commercial Facilities
Learn about air filtration units that improve the indoor air quality in industrial and commercial settings by capturing fine, airborne dust, smoke, mist, fume and odors.
How is an air cleaner different from a dust collector? While a dust collector includes a built-in filter-cleaning system and a dust receptacle or removal system for keeping up with heavy dust loads, air cleaners are designed specifically for fine dust and particulate, depositing it onto disposable filters.
When used to filter the ambient air in a facility, the number of free-hanging air cleaners needed is determined by the amount and type of contaminant generated and the size of the room. The optimal number of air cleaners are then strategically positioned so that an air flow pattern is established to move the dirty air toward the filters, thus providing regular whole room air exchange and filtration.
In addition to being used as free-hanging units to clean the ambient air, air cleaners may also be equipped with extractor arms or ducted to custom hoods or robotic cells for very effective source capture of fine dust and smoke.
Recycling the Filtered Air. Industrial and commercial air cleaners and mist collectors filter the contaminants and return the clean, tempered air to the shop or facility, thus saving on heating and cooling costs. (Use the DustSpot Energy Savings Calculator to estimate cost savings of recirculating filtered air in your plant or shop.)
Industrial Media Units
Industrial air cleaners are commonly used as free-hanging ambient filtration units, strategically located to achieve whole room filtration. When ducted or equipped with extractor arms, these multi-stage media air cleaners also provide very effective source capture for many types industrial operations.
Commercial Media Units
Commercial air cleaners enhance comfort and health in offices, laboratories, restaurants and public facilities. Designed for high-efficiency and quiet operation, these multi-stage filtration units remove pollutants and irritants such as smoke, odors, dust, pollen, and tobacco smoke.
Also called electrostatic collectors or electronic air cleaners, electrostatic precipitators provide high efficiency filtration of very fine smoke and particulate and machine mist. While requiring regular monitoring and cleaning, ESPs offer the advantage of a low-cost ongoing operation.
Mist collectors are available with a variety of filter options for collecting oil mist as well as water-based mist. Mist units may be hung from the ceiling, stationary (floor-mounted) or portable, or mounted atop the machine. Portable mist extractors are also available.
