Woodstock International – Shop Fox

Shop FoxFor those of you who haven’t heard about dust collectors, these systems will be explained to you in this post. I would also like to talk about Shop Fox Dust Collectors and their specifications as one of the best on the market.

But, before we move to the general part, let’s share couple words about what dust collectors are.

The dust collector is actually a system/device that improves the air released through one industrial process by collecting dust and other harmful particles from it. This means that basically one dust collector is mostly used to maintain or improve air quality.

One device has 3 key parts including blower, filter cleaning system, dust filter, and dust removal system. Dust collectors are different from the typical air cleaners because they only use disposable filters to remove the dust.

Another thing you will want to know is that there are 5 types of industrial dust collectors including Fabric filters, Wet scrubbers, Unit Collectors, Inertial separators and Electrostatic precipitators.

You can always get more information by visiting the official Wikipedia post about Dust collectors on the following link – Dust Collector.

Woodstock International Inc is a company that sells dust collectors and other types of machines (woodworking and metalworking). The company also provides all kind of machine parts which can be shipped to any place in the USA within 24 hours once the order is placed.
