Wood Waste Extraction Systems generally consist of
Open Bag Filters:
The most basic filter available for wood waste is the “open bag filter unit. This is an inexpensive solution for small woodworking shops and offers simple collection of waste into bags for later disposal. Open bag filters are suited to machines that produce shavings and small chippings. They range in size from small single bag units to service a single machine, up to a four bag unit that could service a small workshop. There are three standard types of filter media available; Needle felt bags, Coated Needle felt bags and Anti Static filter media to suit various materials and processes.
Bag House Filters or mechanical shaker type filter
Suitable for all types of wood waste, bag house filters differ from an open bag filter by placing the filter media in a metal enclosure. This allows the filter to be sited outside, warm air extracted from the workshop can be ducted back into the building or vented to atmosphere. A shaker mechanism, reverse airflow or reverse jet cleaning can be incorporated for the longer service life of the filter media. The waste can be processed in many ways for collection and disposal. These filters are suited to small, medium and large companies as a stand alone solution or part of a complete waste recycling system.
