Dust Collectors help meet NIOSH and OSHA requirements.

Press Release Summary:



Air Boss® Downflow Dust Collector Series consists of single-station units that control contaminants in manufacturing and industrial processing environments. During recirculation of plant air, they provide 99% efficiency in capturing sub-micron particles of smoke, fumes, and dust. Venturi-assisted design optimizes reverse jet pulse cleaning, while cylindrical fan housing minimizes noise. Tested for Seismic Zone 4, systems are 11-gauge steel with welded seams.

Trion Industries Air Boss® Downflow Dust Collection Series



Sanford, N.C., August__, 2004 - Trion Inc., a division of Fedders Engineered Products, introduces the Air Boss® Downflow Dust Collection (DC) Series, a full range of single-station units and facility-wide solutions that control contaminants in manufacturing and industrial processing environments. Air Boss® Downflow DC Series can help companies meet or exceed NIOSH and OSHA requirements for re-circulation of plant air by providing 99% efficiency in capturing sub-micron particles of smoke, fumes, and dust.

"Air Boss® Downflow DC Series is ideal for mitigating the adverse air quality effects of most dry manufacturing processes," says Dave Bubb, Trion's Director of Representative Sales. "Our dust collection systems can help manufacturers and processors: 1) Protect employee health; 2) Improve productivity, morale and product quality; 3) Reduce maintenance costs; 4) Comply with government regulations; and 5) Enhance company image."

Air Boss® Downflow DC Series' advantages include:
o Efficient dust handling from capture to disposal
o High-performance cartridges that are vertically oriented for even dust collection and efficient cleaning
o Full range of sizes and filtering capacities
o Patented venturi-assisted design to optimize reverse jet pulse cleaning and increase filter life
o Cylindrical fan housing to reduce noise, simplify maintenance and eliminate the need for a discharge volume damper
o Vertical design that has a smaller footprint than comparable units
o 11-gauge steel fabrication and welded seams/joints designed and tested for Seismic Zone 4

How Air Boss® Downflow DC Series Works
Contaminated air enters the collector above the filter cartridges. Specially designed components in the cabinet uniformly distribute the contaminated air across the top of the filters. The contaminated air flows downward without the detrimental velocity spikes that are common with inferior designs. Air movement and gravity both convey dust to the setting area below the filters, and extremely small particulate is collected on the filter media, allowing clean air to return to the workplace. When particulate collection reduces airflow, the patented reverse jet pulse cleaning system is activated to propel the collected dust off the filters and into the settling area.
