Wood chips resulting from woodworking in workshops lay down on the working environment and on production lines.

The accumulation of chips represents a risk of fire and explosion, which must be reduced by constant cleaning and maintenance operations. The inflammable natural feature of wood powder entails the use of suctioning systems to guarantee the highest safety levels in this type of environment.

When suctioning wood powder and chips from the source

– product quality

– production lines efficiency

– workers’ safety and health

are safeguarded and improved.

CONTINUOUS DUTY INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANERS FOR SAWDUST AND WOOD SHAVINGS

A woodworking vacuum cleaner is generally used for:

– cleaning machinery

– cleaning the working environment

– extracting shavings from circular saws, polishing boards, and other equipment

Wood dust vacuums are most effective when used when the machine (circular saws, sanders and other woodworking tools) is in use.

An industrial vacuum cleaner for use in carpentries must be equipped with high-efficiency filters and, in many cases, even ATEX certified for use in explosion hazardous areas, according to the environment of use.

WOOD DUST EXTRACTION SYSTEMS

Lots of machinery, the size of the facility or the presence of ATEX zones may necessitate the need for creating an extraction system to handle wood dust. One single industrial vacuum cleaner with many suction points can give you complete control over any wood dust released into the atmosphere. Delfin designs and builds every type of extraction solution for the timber industry.

When it comes to safety, centralized vacuum systems and industrial vacuum cleaners are compulsory solutions to sawdust and wood chips. In case of explosion hazardous areas, vacuum cleaners should be ATEX certified to guarantee the highest safety levels.
