Woodworking Dust Collectors

"...We Can Offer You a Complete and Affordable Solution to Woodshop Dust..."

If not effectively managed, dust made from woodworking projects can be a hassle to employees, project time, and productivity.  Using a Woodshop dust collector can help eliminate those nuisances from your workshop!

For healthy breathing air and cleanliness, a woodworking shop primarily needs source capture at at any machine while in use.  Secondarily, a woodshop needs an ambient air cleaner to run after everyone has left the area.  The ambient air cleaner should be a media or cartridge based machine capable of removing the smallest particles.

General Information...

The Importance of Woodshop Dust Collectors...

A wood shop dust collector uses suction to effectively capture chips, wood dust and debris that piles up around your work area as well as eliminate irritating and harmful airborne contaminants that collect in your lungs. The most harmful sawdust is the fine layer of dust that gradually builds up on walls, floors and every surface you see.  This dust is invisible while floating around in the air.  We breathe it in without even knowing.  As we inhale, are bodies naturally filter the bigger particles in our nose hair, mucus and cilia before they get into the lungs.  The small invisible particles are too small for the body to filter and become permanently lodged in the lungs.    The best way to keep dust out of your shop and your lungs is to capture it at the source with a wood dust collector, along with a background ambient air cleaning to filter any additional fine dust in the air. This keeps dust away from whichever project you are working on, minimizes cleanup and filters the air so your lungs won't have to.

Whether you build cabinets and furniture or do small woodworking; such as, detail and trim work or dollhouse building, a woodshop dust collection system will keep the air you are breathing free of dust that can give you breathing problems.  It also keeps dust away from the project itself, making it cleaner and more productive. Dust suppression in woodworking is vital to your health.

Which Dust Collector is Right for You?

You don't want to waste money on a woodshop dust collector that doesn't help you.  Many of us, after realizing the long term health hazard of breathing fine wood dust, have gone out to a local store and bought what looks like a decent air cleaner... only to find it didn't do any good.  At BreathePureAir.com, we have the full selection of every available dust collector and the knowledge of when to use each one.  Woodshop dust collection systems can either have wheeled bases and easily roll from workstation to workstation, are stationary and can be set up at each station, or centrally located with or without ducts going to each station.  The technologies involved generally include some sort of media filter (cloth or paper) and cyclone filters.  The correctly used combination will solve your dust problems.

Every woodshop dust problem is really two problems.  To get results, both must be solved:

  1. Collect the chips and dust you can see coming out and piling up around your area.

  2. Eliminate fine airborne dust particles too small to see but eventually collect in your lung tissue.

The first problem can be addressed with a cyclone or media filter with a duct or source capture arm sucking up all the large dust particles the moment they are produced.  If using a cyclone, large particles are filtered into a collection container while small particles are collected via a cartridge media filter.

The second problem is addressed using a media type ambient air cleaner.  This should have the capability of collecting fine particles, such as a HEPA filter.  Depending on the size of your shop and contamination level, you will want to choose an air cleaner that will provide an adequate number of air exchanges every hour (7 to 12).  The ambient air cleaner alone will not be able to keep up with dust created without something pulling out the big particles at the source.
