Environmental Booths (Wet & Dry)
Remove Airborne Dust with a Dust Collection Booth
When welding, grinding and sanding on large dimension parts and assemblies, the only effective method of eliminating airborne dust at the source is to use a dust control booth. Booths can be custom sized based upon application with bolt-together galvanized panels and a self-cleaning backdraft dust collector modules. For flammable dust applications, wet dust collection booths provide a safe method of removing and sequestering volatile particles.
Common environmental booth applications include:
- Welding and plasma cutting
- Grinding and deburring
- Buffing and Polishing
- Sanding and Cutting
- Powder coating and spray painting
- Chemical VOC fumes and odors
Diversitech’s booths incorporate a high capture velocity to ensure that smoke, fumes and overspray are effectively capture and conveyed into the filters. The dust control modules come with high efficiency nanofiber filter cartridges to remove submicron contaminants and return clean air into your facility.
Customizing your Environmental Booth
Our Envirobooths can be completely customized to accommodate your specific application. Common options include the depth, width and height of the booth, dustproof light kits, custom backdraft hoods, crane slots, strip curtain, front doors, regain, HEPA after-filters and many more options. Our application engineers will work through the many variables that determine which dust collection booth is best suited to your particular application.
Benefits of a Dust Control Booth
Capturing and containing dangerous fumes and dust before they enter an operators breathing zone can allow them to operate safely in their work environment without having to wear a cumbersome and constraining respirator. As long as the process occurs within the booth enclosure, the dust will be contained and will not travel around the entire facility affecting other workers and machinery. Filtering and recirculating air in your facility can save money on energy costs and avoid the use of air makeup systems.
What About Combustible Dust?
Combustible dust can be safely captured and collected with a wet dust collection booth. Combustible dust in the manufacturing sector is commonly seen with combustible metal particles including aluminum, titanium and magnesium dust. A wet dust collector is the best solution for containing explosive dust since once the material is submerged into the water stream, it does not have a chance of igniting or catching fire. If combustible dust is present in your facility, contact one of our experts today.
