It's important to the health and safety of woodworkers that workshops are kept clean and free of debris. Woodworking dust collection ducting allows air to be drawn from each machine, at an efficient level of speed, to move air volume and remove wood dust and other particulate before it reaches breathing zones.
After contaminants are removed, the air is filtered and cleaned air is either returned into the building or outside.
To ensure your duct is setup for optimal performance, keep these tips in mind:
• Duct runs should be as short as possible. The longer the duct run the higher the static pressure and the lower the performance.
• If your dust collector moves air quickly enough, use pipes with larger diameters to allow more air movement and less static pressure.
•If turns are required make them gradual and mild so that dust can easily travel through pipes.
Jay Tuttell is a hobbyist woodworker who specializes in crafting cabinets, tables, chairs, and other home furnishings.
With concerns about the health risks that are involved with wood dust, Jay reached out to us in need of a safe, efficient, and affordable system to transport harmful wood dust away from his working environment and into a collection area.
Our team helped Jay customize a quick-fit, clamp together ductwork system for his workshop and saved him from spending additional money on design and installation.
