Dustron DB Dust Containment Booth

The Original Ultra-Efficiency Cartridge Dust Collector Booth

The Filter 1 Advantage

One of the first cartridge dust collector booths to implement the innovative regain of air principle, the Filter 1 Dustron DB Dust Contaminant Booth increases worker comfort and visibility in the critical work areas. Capitalizing on the multiplied ventilation effect of "pushing" clean air out across the front of the booth as the blower "pulls" contaminated air into the filters, the Dustron provides velocities of 400/800 FPM at the center zone of the booth where the dust is being generated. With Clean Air Consultants' fully implemented, fully adjustable Push/Pull Regain Air, the Filter 1 Dustron enhances the conditions and productivity of operations within the booth.

Powerful Performance

Every feature of the dust collection section of the Filter 1 Dustron is designed for efficiency:

  • High Capture Velocity: Fully adjustable Regain Air for working area velocities of 400/800 FPM. The timer-controlled, automatic self-cleaning system consisting of solenoids, dump valves, and blow-down pipes assures that the booth consistently maintains its capture velocity.
  • High-Performance Blowers: Low-speed, high-flow blowers have airfoil blades for high fan efficiency as well as low noise.
  • Ultra-Efficiency Filtration: The Filter 1 Dustron's nanofiber cartridge filters are rated at high efficiency of MERV 15, and operate at a significantly lower pressure drop than that of traditional cartridge media, resulting in lower energy consumption and longer filter life. Vertically-oriented cartridges 12.75" diameter X 30" long provide even, full-capacity filter loading and cleaning.
  • Dust Control: Dust-tight 12 gauge steel cabinet; louvered inlet to discourage dust migration.

Noise Control

The Filter 1 Dustron has built-in sound absorption benefiting the workers inside as well as outside the booth:

  • Solid Construction. Standard booth built with 18 gauge steel walls and ceiling.
  • Advanced Core Insulation. Sound-absorbing mats of two-inch fiberglass compressed to one inch.
  • Outer Layer. Further enhancement of sound attenuation with 5 mils aluminized vinyl-impregnated fiberglass cloth covering of mat.

Enhanced Work Environment

The Filter 1 Dustron is designed to provide optimal conditions for large industrialoperations where dust and/or noise are a problem.

  • Freedom of Movement. The capture velocity provided throughout the booth means that workers are not "tied" to a limited surface space, source capture arm, or vacuum hose.
  • Visibility. The Filter 1 Dustron's effective source capture of smoke, fumes, and dust provides consistent visibility in the work areas of the booth. In addition, the Filter 1 Dustron is well-lit with sealed and gasketed dust-tight fluorescent lights.
  • Safety/Productivity. Many dust booths provide containment without achieving effective environmental control within the booth. The Filter 1 Dustron is designed to effectively capture contaminants for the comfort and health of the booth workers.

Fine to medium particulate (as well as fumes and smoke) from:

  • Wood

The Filter 1 Dustron Environmental Control Booth is utilized for a broad spectrum of industrial contaminants and processes, including:

  • Sanding
  • Grinding
  • Buffing
  • Chipping
  • Air arcing
  • Cutting
  • Mixing
  • Polishing
  • Welding

When live sparks are created by grinding on steel or welding, our fire-retardant cartridges should be further protected by the optional spark trap and solid-state spark detector.
