Hammond DusKolectors® are independent dust collectors used for isolated machines that cannot be connected to a central dust collection system, or where no central system is available. In operation, the DusKolector® draws the dirty air inside itself where the heavier particles are deposited in a dirt container at the bottom of the machine; either a tray or a 55-gallon drum. The air then goes through filters which remove the finer particles, and the filtered air returns to the room. There is no waste of energy exhausting heated or cooled air to the outside of the building. DusKolectors® are available in three models: cabinet, cyclone, and CycloPlus.
Optional DK-655 with 55 gallon drum
Hammond DusKolectors® are designed to be effective and easy to use, but three caution plates are attached to each machine and these warnings must be heeded to insure safe operation.
Never use the same DusKolector® to collect multiple spark generating materials, e.g. aluminum with steel.
Never use spark generating workholders or fixtures.
Never introduce fire into the DusKolector® system.
Never use a flammable finishing lubricant.
Never use flexible hose for branch or main duct runs.
Never allow accumulations of combustible dusts to remain in the system.
Empty the DusKolector®, bins, drums and bags frequently.
Clean the source machinery, hooding and ductwork regularly.
