Construction Site

If you work in construction, demolition or recycling, dust is an inescapable byproduct of this work, and the need to control it is growing with the increase in environmental controls.

Developed specifically to remove particles in tough, dusty environments without using filter elements, Air-Cleaning BlowersTM (ACBs) can remove most kinds of construction, demolition and recycling dusts while blowing out clean air for ventilation, pressurization keeping equipment, people and neighbors cleaner.

Instead of blocking and collecting the debris with filter media, ACBs use the momentum of the particles to separate them from the air and eject them directly.  The big benefit:  they blow and clean air without any filter elements to buy, store, replace or dispose.  Since debris does not accumulate in the units, you can count on steady airflow, air pressure and power consumption.  No filter elements means no filter maintenance!

Unlike cyclonic systems, spin blocks and other momentum-based air-cleaning systems, ACBs just throw the debris out.  No wasted energy, reduced air pressure nor clogging of valves and secondary blowers.  They also eliminate the need for compressed air, and the energy needed to produce it, that many “self-cleaning” systems use to blow out accumulated debris.

Independent testing found that standard ACBs remove 98+% of all particles in the air down to 10 microns in size.  Most construction dust is larger, and the smallest particles most people can see are about 50 microns, which means that ACBs remove virtually all the mass of dust in the air.  They also remove larger particles such as sand, metal scraps and wood chips.  ACBs can be made safe for hazardous (explosive) dusts as well.

ACBs also remove rain, mist and snow from the air, which keeps the air dryer and reduces the load on air conditioners, refrigeration and other dehumidifying equipment.  Another benefit:  unlike filter media, they will not become wet—or freeze up—and stop air from passing through.

Whether you run a recycling plant, build dams or buildings, or demolish them, Air-Cleaning BlowersTM can help.  Originally developed for heavy industries such as steel, mining and fertilizer plants, ACBs are so effective that they are used by the US military in the Middle East to keep air conditioners cooling in sandstorms.

Most people don’t want to collect particles, they just want clean air.  Clean air is what ACBs provide.
