Dust Collection System Design
Dust collection design can be complicated, here are a few simply steps to designing an effective anhave simplified the dust collection system design process for smaller shops, it is important to knowand regulations enforced by AHJ (Authorities Having Jurisdiction) governing sales, construction, inssystems.Air Handling Systems by Manufacturers Service Co., Inc. cannot guarantee compliance, and cannoinstalled or used. Before purchase and use of a Product, please review the Product application, natisure that the Product, dust collection design, installation, and use will be in compliance.Download our Air Handling Design Guide. We can also offer youTips on Installing your Air H1. Download our Take off list for Quotesto ease the process of quoting. Simply fill in qu800-438-7135.

- Air Volume in cubic feet per minute.
- Velocity of Air in feet per minute.
- Static Pressure. This is expressed in inches water gauge. It is resistance to air acalled "resistance", "friction", "friction loss", or "pressure loss."
- Velocity Pressure: expressed in inches water gauge. It is kinetic pressure in theat rest to flow at a given velocity.
It is best to do the following calculations

Determine the size of each branch
 There are several ways to determine the diameter of the branches.B.If the machine has a factory installed collar, the manufacturer has determined that thenormal circumstances.1.If the machine has a metric diameter outlet, convert it into inches, and round off to theparts list you may need to order a custom reducer.2.If the outlet is rectangular you need to determine the equivalent round diameter. Whe3.If the branch is smaller than 3" diameter plan using a reducer near the machinery to ifor 3 "(195 CFM).4.Determine CFM requirements for each branch. Under the proper velocity note the CFM of euse 4000 FPM in branches ( see above - A) Duct Velocity ).
Determine Diameter of Main Duct

machines. A primary machine is the matime under the worst conditions. (If you normally operate two machines, but once a wthe same time, then you must size your system for all three machines.) We generallydrawing.1.Sizing the Main Trunk Line. When sizing the main truck line start with the primary maRun that size duct until the next primary branch enters the main. Increase the main si

Using tthe appropriate velocity (3500 FPM in the main for wood dust), then look at the corresthe main from the Lathe until the branch of the Radial Saw joins the main.Here again you need to increase your main to handle the total CFM (700+550=1250that 1250 CFM is slightly more than volume for 8" diameter.

 The total static pressure is several factors added together. They are entry loss, dirty filter losduct, static pressure of the main duct, and static pressure of the return duct.D.There are more complicated ways to figure the entry loss of your system, but we findgauge. (Use 1" as a constant.)1.If your system has filters, add in 2" loss. (If you do not have filters add zero).2.The Worst Branch, is the branch with the greatest resistance.
