This low-maintenance and user-friendly combination grind booth and dust collection system is great option where regulatory requirements no longer permit internal venting of baghouse or HEPA Filter-equipped Grind Booths. Check with your local regulatory officials for the required dust collection technology in your jurisdiction.

This Grind Booth features an innovative dust collection system that utilizes automatic reverse pulse cleaning technology to clean the filters. A preset solid state timer, controlling both frequency and duration of the pulses, controls the cleaning process. Pulses of compressed air automatically clean the cartridges by reverse pressurization, and the accumulated dust sheets simply drop to the floor pans below the cartridges. Periodically, the trays are pulled and emptied in a receptacle for quick, convenient easy disposal.
