Choosing a dust collector
Choosing a dust collector
Select the model of the dust collector based on the required air flow. Check the required air flow in the following order.
Checking the type of dust and generating source
Check the type of dust (to see if it can be sucked in by the GDE series) and the source of the dust.
Determining the type of hood and installation method
Take workability into consideration and examine the type of hood to use and how it is going to be installed. Ensure that dust can be collected at a distance X [m] as close as possible to the source of the dust.
Check the control air speed
The control wind speed to derive the performance of the local exhaust equipment according to the model of the hood is stipulated in the Ordinance on Prevention of Hazards Due to Dust.
Control wind speed stated in the dust impairment prevention regulations (Ordinance on Prevention of Hazards Due to Dust)
Control air speed according to the provisions in the standards under Article 27 Para 1 of the Ordinance on Prevention of Hazards Due to Dust
|Model of hood||Control air speed (m/s)|
|Externally-mounted hood||lateral suction type||1.0|
|Bottom suction model||1.0|
|Upper suction model||1.2|
Control wind speed of a machine having a rotating body like a grinding machine or drum sander etc. pursuant to the provisions in Article 4 or Article 27 Paragraph 1 of the Ordinance on Prevention of Hazards Due to Dust
|How to install the hood||Control air speed (m/s)|
|How to enclose an entire machine having rotating bodies||0.5|
|In this method, the dispersion direction of the dust generated by the rotation of the rotating body is covered at the opening side of the hood||5.0|
|How to enclose only the rotating bodies||5.0|
Calculating the required air flow
The required air flow is calculated from the type and shape of the hood and the control wind speed was determined in the preceding paragraph.
|Model of hood||Sketch||Airflow Q(m3/min)|
Vo:Average wind speed at the opening face[m/s]
(Rectangular or circular canopy hood)
(Circular or rectangular hood with flange provided in free space)
(Circular or rectangular hood provided in free space)
GDE Series models are equipped with an ultra-fine filter backed by Apiste's cutting-edge ultra-fine nanofiber technology.
Apiste ultra-fine filters work together with our Green Pulse System to eliminate the need for filter replacement over the long-term and achieve cleaner emissions than any dust collector so far.
GDE Series dust collectors are equipped with an energy-saving Premium Efficiency Motor, an inverter for auto-airflow control, memory for storing operating data, remote operation functions, and more.
Attach an optional GDE Series Original Fume Box to collect fumes generated by laser, plasma, and other welding processes.
In addition, the standard equipment ultra-fine filter has a large filter area and nano-mesh structure ideal for collecting particulate fumes.
