WOOD & DUST
Industrial Filtration for the Woodworking Industry
Woodworking ranges from small wood shops, to cabinet and furniture manufacturing, to primary lumber milling and the manufacturing processes associated with engineered wood products like plywood, OSB and and MDF.
There are several types of wood dust including light and fine dust typically as a result of sanding, medium sized dust particles from jointers, routers, shapers, moulders and other similar machinery, and large dust particles that are more fibrous, typically from planers, lathes, band saws and other similar machines.
In addition, most types of wood dust are characterized by being flammable and explosive, thus requiring specific air filtration solutions.
National Filter Media supplies filter solutions for a variety of the dust stemming from woodworking:
- Light and fine dust, typically as a result of sanding
- Medium sized dust particles from jointers, routers, shapers, molders and other similar machinery
- Large dust particles, that are more fibrous, from planers, lathes, band saws and other similar machines
- Flammable and explosive wood dust. Our filtration solutions and filter media listed below, are suitable for flammable and explosive dust, which most wood dust is characterized by being.
Many plants in the wood industry have benefitted from converted to the type of air filtration systems used by the Industrial Boiler industry. Click here for information of Industrial Boiler Industry.
