Sentry Air Systems’ light-use Portable Grinding Dust Collectors & Extractors are designed for carbon steel, stainless steel, cold rolled steel, plastic, copper, and beryllium applications; more specifically for maintenance grinding where average use time is one to two hours per week.
For workspaces where grinding is used, the hazards of dust particles are two-fold. One thing to consider is the damage small particles of dust can do to the lungs once inhaled. Secondly, even a small layer of dust build up has the potential to combust, resulting in explosion. It is vitally important for both the health and safety of workers to minimize the amount of dust particles in a workspace. OSHA recommends a combination of dust collection systems and filters for dust control.
Sentry Air Systems uses a combination of a variety of filter media customized for your specific application including HEPA filters [up to 99.97% efficient on particles 0.3 microns and larger], ASHRAE filters [up to 95% efficient on particles 0.5 microns and larger] and ULPA filters [up to 99.9995% efficient on particles 0.12 microns and larger].
Note: Due to the high volatility of certain dust particles, Sentry Air Systems Grinding Dust Collectors are not meant for aluminum, titanium, rubber dust, or wax-related applications. See OSHA standards and guidelines related to combustible dust.
Sentry Air Systems Grinding Dust Collectors are intended for maintenance use and/or low-loading applications.
