An efficient dust collector with a small footprint

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The Mac SpaceSaver dust collector (photo) is said to be up to 75% smaller than traditional dust collectors, offering a superior cleaning mechanism and long-lasting, leak-free cartridges. With a footprint as small as (27 ✕ 38) in.2, the Mac SpaceSaver is suitable for applications with limited space requirements in terms of both cross-section and overall height, as well as in areas of the plant that are not connected to central dust-collection systems. Many cartridge styles are available to best fit the application, with sizes ranging from 2 to 48 cartridges per collector. The Mac SpaceSaver uses patented directed airflow to thoroughly pulse the cartridges. This directed airflow extends cartridge life and uses compressed air more efficiently than competitive models. Complete tool-free cartridge changeout and a unique blowpipe configuration simplify maintenance. Because users can change the cartridge without having to enter the collector, there are no confined-space entry issues. — Schenck Process LLC, Kansas City, Mo.
