Dust Collector Accessory
After more than 30 years in the conception, fabrication and realization of dust collecting systems, we have now created the Speed FX to optimize the power required by blowers.
The Speed FX profiles control equipment that calibrates the flow of a dust collector – paint booth or other equipment – according to the number of functioning vacuum items.
The system continually measures the performance of the dust collector system and calibrates the speed of the blower in order to keep the air flow at an optimal level.
Traditionally, a dust collector system is conceived [dimensioned] in order to capture dust at the source when all equipments are simultaneously connected to the network and functioning, however it often occurs that 100% capacity is not required, and excess air flow allows useful energy to escape.
With the Speed FX, we measure conditions of air flow within the system and we adjust the blower to maintain them at the required level for the amount of equipments working. We can also adjust the provision of cool air to compensate the evacuation.
Only our variable frequency drive [VFD] and our controller can adjust the flow constantly and automatically.
We have noted that the payback period on investments is of 2 years for a 30 HP and over blower. Several electrical distributors offer financial help for the installation of energy saving controls. You may verify that option with your public utility firm.
