The metalworking industry creates a lot of problematic particles in the air. From welding to grinding and everything in between, there are fumes and fine dust particles floating around, waiting to be inhaled by you and your employees. The need for a quality dust collecting and fume extraction system is imperative and Imperial Systems has the right equipment for your business. In order to choose the right system for your needs, the airflow in your building should be calculated. Imperial Systems provides a free air flow calculator on our website.
What Does The Air Flow Calculator Do?
This calculator is designed to give you the volume of air in any given enclosure and calculate it into CFM (cubic feet per minute) with a given number of changes per hour. When you calculate the number of ACH (air changes per hour), consider the amount of fume and particle to be removed. Applications used for this calculator include:
- Sand and shot blasting
- Torch cutting
- Arc gouging
- Thermal spray
- Plasma Spray
- Detonation Spraying
- Wire arc spraying
- High velocity oxy fuel/ coating spraying
- Warm spraying
- Cold spraying
- Robotic welding
- Powder coating
- Plasma cutting
When you receive your air flow calculations, a sales engineer from Imperial Systems will take you step by step through the process of purchasing the correct equipment for your needs. A common system to purchase for metalworking would be the CMAXX Laser Dust and Fume Extraction System. The CMAXX Laser fights tough gases from cutting. It is designed to connect directly to a laser or plasma cutting table which minimizes the cost of your additional equipment because it eliminates ductwork costs.
At Imperial Systems we know that safety and quality of product in the workplace is a priority. Give us a call today so we can provide you with a quality system and don’t forget to utilize our free air flow calculator!
