Cabinet fascia manufacturer Doorcraft Design in Bangor, Northern Ireland, turned to Dust Control Systems (DCS) to bring it in line with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) directives.

Chris Oldfield, of DCS, said: ‘Because they are using traditional machines like pin routers, tenoners, moulders, planers and belt sanders, only certain elements are needed to fulfil orders going through the factory at any one time.’

The plant installed is based on the Nordfab NF 2000 tubular sock-type filter with reverse air regeneration fansets. A floor-mounted 22kW CombiFab fanset transports waste to one end of the filter hopper from which it is discharged through a rotary valve.

The filter installation is designed to provide extraction capacity of up to 6,000cfm in Doorcraft’s number one machine shop.
