DO YOU NEED SPARK ARRESTANCE?
Spark arrestance is essential for applications that produce sparks that could reach the ductwork or dust collector filter chamber. These processes include but are not limited to:
- Cutting/Laser Cutting
- Abrasive Blasting/Wheel Blasting
- Shot Peening/Surface Texturing
- Spark Machining/Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM)
Sparks created by these processes can enter the ductwork or dust collector filter chamber, where they can easily start a dust collector fire or explosion. Under the right conditions, the filter media in the dust collector provides an ideal fuel source for a fire—especially when impregnated by potentially flammable material. These risks are intensified due to the airflow provided by the dust collection system. That’s why it is important to prevent sparks from welding, cutting, grinding and other applications from entering the dust collector.
Spark arrestance helps to keep sparks out of the ductwork and/or dust collector filter chamber. A spark arrestance system should be used whenever sparks are present near the inlet of the dust collection system.
RoboVent engineers have dedicated a lot of time to researching, testing and monitoring the production of spark arrestor systems, There is no 100 percent guaranteed solution for spark arrestance on the market today and this includes the Delta3 Inline. RoboVent will work with your team to engineer the best system for your application.
