Overview

When purchasing dust collection systems and filter cartridges, the initial purchase price is just the tip of the iceberg. The true costs – energy, consumables and operations – lurk below the surface.

Energy costs can be greatly reduced because fan motors don't have to work as hard in dust collection systems that are designed correctly for the specific application. Pulse-cleaning systems use much less compressed air when they have filter cartridges with the most appropriate media. Also, dust collection systems can be designed to safely recirculate the air they move back into the workspace, further reducing energy costs.

When it comes to selecting filter cartridges, premium brands can greatly reduce yearly consumable costs because they last longer and are replaced less often. Filter media pleating technology also plays an important role in minimizing pressure drop and maximizing airflow to improve collector uptime. These dust collection system design considerations also impact ongoing costs such as labor and waste disposal.

This webinar helps you understand the total cost of ownership of a dust collector and focuses on the areas where the greatest cost savings can be achieved over the long term.
