NFPA Compliant Dust Collection Systems for Your Shop

In the world of metalworking, sparks may fly.  In fact, in the midst of shaping, grinding, and welding, it is not uncommon.  These sparks are a sign of progress, of products being completed and goals being met.  However, if your shop does not have an NFPA compliant dust collection system, the sign of sparks flying may also be the first sign of danger.

When dust and fumes–natural byproducts of almost any manufacturing process–accumulate, so does the risk of combustion.  Make sure that your workplace and employees are safe with the NFPA compliant dust collection products you need from Imperial Systems.

Metalworking Hazards

nfpa compliant dust collection The health and safety hazards you and your team face in a metalworking shop may vary, depending upon the materials and processes you are using on a given day.  For example, grinding and other similar heavy duty mechanical cleaning can create large, heavy particles that should be quickly captured in a dust collection system to avoid the risks of flammable accumulation.  Other processes may create noxious fumes which could harm those working in the shop.  In order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all, it is important to have an NFPA compliant dust collection system that can fit this range of needs.

NFPA Compliant Dust Collection Systems

At Imperial Systems, we understand that in addition to being NFPA compliant, you have other standards for your dust collection systems.  Not only do they need to keep your workplace, employees, and products safe, but they also need to fit into your space, budget and rate of production.  A system that requires regular, complex maintenance will only slow you down, and your unique space may not accommodate the standard NFPA dust compliant dust collection systems and ductwork.

Instead of settling for second best in a matter when safety and efficiency are both high priorities, turn to Imperial Systems instead. Our dust collection systems are fully NFPA compliant and are also some of the most highly efficient systems out there.  For example our CMAXX dust collection systems are designed to ensure a longer filter life, easier cleaning, and the most efficient system available.

At Imperial Systems, we also understand that your shop may not look exactly like ours.  For that reason, we offer fully customized ductwork systems as well.  Our highly qualified representatives will work with you to develop the solutions you need to keep your metalworking business running safely and smoothly.

Imperial Systems Competes with Donaldson Torit Industrial Air Filters

Donaldson Torit industrial air filters are some of the most popular filters in the industry. Donaldson Torit is a long-established air filtration company that offers industrial air filters that have proven to be efficient and satisfactory for their customers. Here at Imperial Systems, we know that we can hold our own against the bigger name dust collection companies that have been in the business for many more years than we have. In fact, not only do we think we can compete with the top dogs in the industry, but we believe our products surpass those of our fellow companies’ in regard to quality and efficiency.

To prove our claim, let’s compare and contrast our DeltaMAXX industrial cartridge filters with the filters offered by Donaldson Torit. Industrial air filters are a vital piece of a dust collection system, so the comparison between filters is a good way to gauge the quality offered by each company. Let’s take a look at some of the many elements of industrial air filters.

Donaldson Torit Industrial Air Filters VS DeltaMAXX Filters:

Efficiency: Both Donaldson Torit industrial air filters and Imperial’s DeltaMAXX filters boast a MERV 15 efficiency rating. The MERV scale is the ruler by which all filters in the industry are measured. MERV 15 is the highest grade in the industry. So far, the score is tied 1-1.

Filter Life: Donaldson describes their filter life by the word “longer” which is extremely vague and could really mean anything. Imperial’s filters have been proven to have up to twice the filter life of the competition. Imperial takes the lead, 2-1.

Technology: Both companies’ filters are manufactured with the most advanced nanofiber technology. One point for both teams. Imperial holds the lead by one going into the final round.

Acclimatization: You will want to consider whether the filters you buy are going to be able to fit in your existing dust collection system. Donaldson Torit industrial air filters are available for MOST systems while DeltaMAXX filters are made for ALL models of dust collection systems. The point goes to Imperial!

Imperial Filters Compared to Donaldson Industrial Cartridge Filters

Donaldson Torit DCE is an established and popular filtration solutions company that has been in business for a century! For the past thirty-five years, the company has offered quality dust collection systems. Although Imperial Systems is a much younger company, we believe our equipment surpasses that of Donaldson Torit DCE in regard to efficiency, safety, and overall quality.

In order to back this claim, lets take a look at a couple of case studies which compare Donaldson industrial cartridge filters with Imperial’s DeltaMAXX dust collection cartridge filters.

Donaldson Industrial Cartridge Filters VS  DeltaMAXX Filters

donaldson industrial cartridge filtersDonaldson Torit DCE Case Study: A railroad locomotive manufacturer had just installed a new plasma cutter in order to cut thicker steel. The new cutter generated a ton of dust, which proved to be too much for their existing dust collection filters to handle. They decided to switch to Donaldson industrial cartridge filters. The Ultra-Web technology of the Donaldson Torit industrial cartridge filters extended the filter life to eight times that of the filters they had been using.

The company noted that the filters they had been using were needing to be replaced every three to six weeks. This means that the new Donaldson industrial cartridge filters lasted anywhere from about twenty-four to forty-eight weeks.

Imperial Systems Case Study: A northern Pennsylvania chrome polishing plant that manufactured eighty hours a week was having some trouble with their dust collection system. The existing filters were being ruined by an oily coating, causing a need for replacement at least three times per year. The company did not want to be replacing their filters this often, so they switched to Imperial’s DeltaMAXX filters. The result? The company has not had to replace their dust collection filter in over a year!

Therefore, Imperial’s filter lasts over fifty-two weeks in a plant that generates dust for sixteen hours a day while the Donaldson industrial cartridge filter last forty-eight weeks at a maximum. This example exhibits that the DeltaMAXX filter life exceeds that of the Donaldson filter by at least a month (probably more like two to three months). These extra months save your company time, energy, and money!

What we lack in years of experience, we make up for in our top-notch design and manufacturing. It is features like nanofiber technology and vertical cartridge design that set our filters apart from the competition! Our commitment to excellence applies to everything from design, to manufacturing, to installation. For dust collection equipment you can rely on, contact Imperial Systems.

Imperial Systems – Replacement Cartridge Filters Company Case Studiesreplacement cartridge filters company

1. Hard Chrome Polishing Plant: This northern Pennsylvania plant was racking up a ton of manufacturing hours, eighty hours a week to be exact. The filters they had been using from their old replacement cartridge filters company just could not handle all the work without having to be replaced at least three times a year. Once the plant switched to Imperial Systems’ Deltamaxx cartridge filters, they have gone over a year without needing one change. This filter life that is about four times that of their old filters has significantly cut costs and down time in their workplace.

2.  Major Lead Fabrication Products Manufacturer: The largest lead based product manufacturing company in the United States was having a hard time with their cartridge filters. They were getting too hot in the dust collector system and consequently falling apart. In their efforts to find better quality filters, the company began purchasing cartridge filters from Imperial Systems who proved to be the best of all the replacement cartridge filters companies they had dealt with. They were impressed with the durability of our filters and have been returning customers for the past few years.

3.  Texas Community College: The welding Technology program of this north Texas community college was looking for more cost efficient replacement cartridge filters for their existing dust collector system. They went with our DeltaMAXX Replacement Cartridge Filters and experienced great results in their first semester of use. They had been having problems with smoke emitting from the back of the system, but that problem dissolved once the DeltaMAXX filters were employed. The program was very happy with the results and expressed that their expectations were exceeded.

Industrial Dust Extraction Safety

One of the main reasons for the installation of industrial dust extraction systems in an industrial workplace is keeping the employees and equipment safe from the hazardous effects of dust and fumes generated by industrial processes. Following that emphasis on safety, you will want to make sure you invest in high quality industrial dust collector systems that can do their job safely.

Although it may be tempting to look at affordability before quality, industrial dust extraction is an area in which you do not want to compromise on safety. Here are some tips for ensuring the safety of your dust collection equipment.

8 Tips For Safe Industrial Dust Extraction Systems:industrial dust extraction

  1.   Pressure Rating: You will want to find an industrial dust extraction system with high pressure ratings. If you invest in a durable system that is already equipped with proper protection, your additional protection costs will be decreased.

  2.  Ductwork: You could have the best system in the world, but if your ductwork is low grade and lacks essential parts like dampers and valves, the threat of serious, explosive malfunctions is still high.

  3.  Hopper Storage: The storage area beneath the hopper must be kept clean. If it is not consistently emptied, the pulse-cleaning system could be hindered.

  4.  PLC: A programmable logic controller (PLC) is something you will want to avoid to run your pulse-cleaning system. PLCs are too slow for fast-paced pulse-cleaning.

  5.  Filter Change: You’ll want a system with which filter exchanges can happen safely and with ease. If the filters are positioned high or in an inconvenient place, changing them out can be very taxing and even dangerous.

  6.  Filter Life: Filters are a very important piece of industrial dust extraction equipment. One of the most significant aspects of filters is their life span. The longer the filter life, the lower the costs and exposure to dust for employees.

  7.  Fire Prevention: Vertically mounted filters do not allow dust to accumulate on top of them, which eliminates a fire hazard. In addition, a number of features of industrial dust extraction systems can prevent fires such as flame-retardant filter media and spark arrestors.

   8.  Accessories: A number of safety additions can be added to your system. Railed platforms and ladders, lock-out doors, BIBO containment systems, and safety monitoring filters can all decrease the risk of hazards.

Imperial Systems offers high quality industrial dust extraction systems that meet all OSHA and EPA safety standards. You may want to add safety accessories, but you can be sure you have a safe and secure system from Imperial.
