Portable Dust Collection System

March 13, 2012

The PCH Series of portable dust collection systems provides source-point collection of airborne contaminants and prevents contaminants from migrating throughout the facility to settle on equipment and fixtures, contaminate product or present physical hazards to personnel. The PCH Series collection and filtration system is suitable for a wide range of particulate types, including: chemical, pharmaceutical and food processing dusts and powders; buffing, polishing and grinding dusts; weld smoke; fumes and odors; even oil mists. Collection efficiency is optimized, power consumption is reduced and operator obstruction is minimized due to the PCH Series patented E-Z Arm® High Flow Extractor arm design. The E-Z Arm® close-profile, external arm support eliminates the air flow resistance common with internally supported arms, enabling the PCH Series to produce higher air flow levels with lower power requirements than competitive units, according to the manufacturer.
