Imperial Systems has changed the roof design of all CMAXX Cartridge Dust Collectors to have a solid one-piece roof. The CrownTECHTM roof on the CMAXX is fully reinforced and slightly positively bowed to make the unit stronger and assist with water runoff. Even with these changes, the CMAXX dust collection system still holds the title for the only modular dust collector with no external bolt holes.
The three key features of the new roof design are: 1. Zero bolt holes, 2. No individual panels, and 3. No roof seams between the modular.
Imperial System’s competitor’s similar unit, with 16 cartridges, has close to 68 feet of sealed connection and approximately 160 bolt holes with over 1000 holes throughout the collector from the bolted panel design. This old style of fabrication leads to potential leaks and holding water resulting in rust and damaged equipment from freezing.
The CMAXX Dust Collector stands tall on the claim of no external bolt holes with an industry best 15 year warranty.
The new CrownTECHTM roof is set to display this year at Fabtech 2016 in Las Vegas. Be sure to stop by booth # N1825 to check out Imperial’s products.
