Biesse UK, part of the Biesse S.p.a., are one of the UK’s leading woodworking machinery suppliers, and as such, has an established reputation for the provision of excellent customer service and technical support. At Tailor Made Signs, a state of the art CNC is employed in cutting, processing and finishing large quantities of panels of different material which, in turn generates high levels of material waste.
After careful consideration of Biesse’s requirements, Air Plants came up with a scheme that involved the installation of an Air Plants D1821P fine dust unit and connecting ductwork to the extraction manifold on the CNC. The installed system has a total airflow capacity of 3,393 M³/Hr.
The Air Plants D1821P unit consists of a central plenum section onto which the inlet spigot is mounted. Below this is the 4kW motor and dynamically balanced impeller. As the waste enters the unit through this inlet spigot it is turned through 90 degrees into the main chamber. The heavier particles are collected directly into the heavy duty plastic bags below. The light particles are separated through the 21 filter bags on top of the unit. The cleaned air is discharged back into the workshop.
