At Spiral Manufacturing, spiral ducts are our specialty. One application our spiral ducts are particularly well suited for is dust collection. Dust collection systems, which come in many different varieties, are an integral part of operations in all kinds of industries. By extension, our spiral ducts that are used for dust collection play a critical role in a wide array of enterprises.

Powder Coating Dust Collection

It is very important to have working dust collection systems in place in environments where powder coatings are being used frequently. Powder coatings are chemical compounds that are typically used for metal finishing. They are applied to surfaces electrostatically and then cured to create a tough, durable finish.

During the powder coating process, dust and particulate matter become airborne. This debris is generally toxic, and can cause health problems in people who are exposed to it. It is also flammable, and can cause fires and electrical problems. Our spiral ducts are used in powder coating dust collection systems to keep work spaces safe and healthy by eliminating these harmful airborne contaminants.

Dust collection is also a serious concern in the grain and seed industry. Grain processing facilities have to contend with an abundance of grain dust, which happens to be highly flammable. In fact, it is so flammable that OSHA has a combustible dust rule solely for the agricultural industry, created in response to the extreme frequency of grain dust fires and explosions.

Our spiral ducts are used for dust collection systems that help grain processing facilities manage grain dust and prevent accidents that could result in injuries and deaths.

Dust Collection and Woodworking

One of the most common places in which our spiral ducts are used for dust collection is the woodshop. Every facility where woodworking takes place needs to have a dust collection system to deal with the excessive amounts of sawdust that will undoubtedly be present.

Like grain dust, sawdust is extremely flammable, and can cause terrible fires and explosions if it is not properly controlled. In addition to being a fire hazard, sawdust can contain resins and other toxic materials that are harmful when inhaled. Dust collection systems help keep woodshops safe by eliminating sawdust from the air.
