DO BREAKDOWNS OR FAILURES AFFECT YOUR PRODUCTION?
Extraction Solutions provide bespoke, engineered dust extraction systems. Our systems currently provide a safe working environments for thousands of employees in industries such as kitchen manufacture, composite door manufacture, and wood recycling. Our goal is to provide our customers good quality, energy efficient LEV systems and great customer service.
We design our systems to be easily manageable and many system functions can be automated. We also aim to reduce the need for on going maintenance and ensure that we install the most energy efficient solution possible. Our Cyclofilter has no internal moving parts which dramatically reduces potential failures. Alternatively for the ultimate energy efficient solution, we have a range of filters with a unique cascading fan system. This design automatically starts or stops the in built fans depending on the how many machines are required.
KEY ASPECTS OF OUR DUST EXTRACTION SYSTEMS
HOW WE WORK
WHY UPGRADE YOUR EXTRACTION?
Among the many reasons to improve or replace an extraction system, first and foremost should be exposure of employees. Extraction systems should control dust breakout ‘as far as reasonably practicable’ and ensure that exposure is kept below the workplace exposure limit (WEL). Removing dust not only improves air quality it lowers fire risk and reduces build up of dusts around integral machine parts.
Another important consideration is health and safety. Extraction systems handling potentially explosive materials should to adhere to ATEX regulations. This sets out the minimum safety aspects a system should have to reduce or remove risk to life and property in the event of an explosion. All systems installed after July 2003 should follow these guidelines.
Improving your LEV systems not only benefits your employees health and safety, it can also increase productivity and the quality of your finished product. Time spent fault finding or repairing equipment affects production. Similarly, poor dust removal can leave a poor finish on work pieces meaning more re-works or do-overs.
EFFICIENT, SUSTAINABLE, CLEAN AIR
Providing a clean and health workspace for your employees is an essential investment. Our dust extraction systems can be engineered to run at minimal cost which has a positive effect on both profit and the environment.
Well thought out solutions can provide a vast reduction in volume requirements. For example, if your current system runs 100% of your machines, yet you only require extraction to 60% of machines at one time. There is a potential 40% reduction in extraction volumes which could amount to a huge saving in running costs.
These ‘on demand’ duct systems use automatic dampers which open/close when a machine is required. The inverter controlled fans will automatically optimise the speed, ensuring that in-duct velocities remain adequate. Unlike other similar systems, our solutions will not allow dust to build up inside the duct and no special controls are required.
SAVE ENERGY / REDUCE COSTS
Below is an example of how even a small reduction in extraction volume can have a large reduction in running costs; If a workshop has 10 machines, but only 4 operators, then only 4 machines can be used at one time. The duct system can be designed so that a number of machines can be closed off without reducing in-duct velocities. This can dramatically reduce the power requirements and therefore running costs.

We try to upload new articles on dust extraction every month to show you what we’ve been up to. These editorials can help to explain the benefits of our extraction products and what equipment best suits the various situations and industries.
