Case Study: Installing dust extraction systems at Young Catholic High School

Leading Australian supplier of dust collectors and fume extraction
equipment, Ezi-Duct installed and commissioned a new dust extraction system at Young
Catholic High School.

The school in Young NSW, the ‘Cherry Capital of Australia’, required a high
efficiency dust collection system for their industrial arts classrooms. Ezi-Duct’s
dust collector, which is located outside the building, is connected to 15 woodworking
machines and two downdraft benches inside the classrooms.

Ezi-Duct supplied an Australian designed Polex eCompact 6000 fully automatic
self-cleaning dust collector as well as the Ezi-Duct modular steel ducting
system and Ezi-Flex flexible ducting.

Providing suction of 6000 m³/h @ 3000 pa, the Polex eCompact 6000 dust
collector works under negative pressure to prevent any ‘dirty air’ from passing
through the high efficiency, energy-saving 7.5 kW fan.

A PLC incorporated into the control panel that is supplied with the unit
assists with automatic cleaning of the filter bags every time the unit is shut
down, ensuring the dust collector delivers 100% efficiency the next time the dust
extraction system is operated.

Polex has designed the eCompact 6000 dust collector to deposit the waste
wood dust and shavings directly into two 240L wheelie bins, allowing ease of operation
and eliminating potential OH&S issues associated with emptying the waste
bins.

Australia’s leading supplier of dust collection equipment, Ezi-Duct
offers a huge range of dust collectors, fume extractors, modular ducting,
flexible ducting, fume arms, fans and spray booths among others ex-stock at
their three state branches in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Ezi-Duct is a
proud Australian Manufacturer and proudly displays the Made in Australia logo.
