Variable Speed Dial (picture, above):  0 - 15,663 CFM.  The variable speed control dial is a key component to controlling precisely the amount of CFM for your application in exhausting and ventilating the dust.

  • Depending on a variety of external variables (humidity in the air, volume of dust, type of dust, condition of the filter collection bag (how clean it is)), too much CFM going into the filter bag may cause the dust to reverse its flow and backflow into your work area.

  • When backflow does occur, it may also be your signal that the filter bag needs to be cleaned.  Or, to prolong production, reduce the fan's speed so that you can get through the day before cleaning the filter bag.

Interior & Exterior Ventilation Methods

Interior Environments.  Venting hazardous gases, smoke, heat and dust from work areas helps to make the working environment safer for everyone.  Two common methods to achieve this goal are as follows.

Positive Pressure Ventilation (PPV) and Negative Pressure Ventilation (NPV)

 

PPV with the 30" Industrial Power Blower ventilating an enclosed area.1)  Positive Pressure Ventilation
In a typical PPV application, the fan is placed about four to ten feet from the doorway of the structure and is positioned so that the cone of air produced by the fan completely seals the opening.

Once the doorway is sealed, air pressure inside the structure builds almost instantly.  An exhaust opening, usually a rear door or window, allows the air to quickly escape due to the difference between the outside and inside air pressure.  The smoke, fumes, dust and other contaminants are quickly cleared and replaced with fresh, clean air.

The Controlled AIRStream series of Industrial Blowers have a unique shroud design that creates the "cone of air" that is essential for PPV to work.  In addition, the multiple blades of the AirFlex Impellers create the pressure required to move air out.

 

 

16" Power Blower being used with Heavy-Weight (16 mil) Smooth Bore Ducting to ventilate concrete dust.2) Negative Pressure Ventilation
Often referred to as smoke ejection in the fire service industry, NPV is the extraction of air from a structure with suction techniques.  By using an Industrial Power Blower equipped with Flex Tubing or Smooth Bore Ducting, any environment can be cleared and exhausted with NPV.  See below for more information on these available products.

HD Connector - Stabilizes and connects multiple sections of flexible ducting.Placed need the source of contamination, using the 16" Industrial Blower and its 11125 CFM, up to 500' of Smooth Bore Clear Ducting may be used to exhaust dust and fumes to an outside area (click on picture to see the insert picture).

 

 

 

Using PPV and NPV together to expedite ventilation.Combination of Using PPV & NPV . . .
A combination of both types of ventilation may also be used to expedite the ventilation of silica dust, fumes, odors and extreme temperatures . . . without contaminating the adjacent rooms or areas.

 

 

 

Dust Director Power Blower being used to ventilate a well head from dust and dangerous gases (radon, radium, methane and Hydrogen Sulfide.)Exterior Environments.  The obstacles to effectively ventilate exterior environments can be numerous.  Unlike interior spaces which allow the use of PPV and NPV to ventilate and control the entire climate, there are no such techniques for hazardous outdoor locations.  

And when you throw in inclement weather and the abuse these blowers get while working next to larger pieces of equipment, you quickly see why outside work sites require a fan that's a cut above the rest:  Extremely Durable, Reliable, High in Performance, Easy to Maneuver and Universal to Adapt to a Wide Variety of Situations.

Powerful Dust Director Blower gives you environmental control you need on almost all exterior work sites.The Dust Director's General Ventilation Blower offers everything you need in a remarkably reliable exterior ventilation unit.  Built here in the USA by a team of skilled fabricators, every part of this blower is built to last, from the welded and powder coated steel frame and shroud, to the dust protected motors.  

The high performance electric motors and impeller blades put out enough CFM to deliver the ventilation your job site needs --- even when competing against outside elements such as cross winds.

 

 

Commonly used today within the oil and gas drilling professions, drilling professionals are all too familiar with the "always there presence" of extremely harmful toxins and chemicals which reside underground among the oil and gas deposits.  

As drilling is conducted, these chemicals travel to the surface, putting working crews in direct exposure.  One chemical in particular, Hydrogen Sulfide, poses extreme risk of illness and death to workers even with very brief exposure.

Illustration of the simple but effective use of a blower to ventilate a well drilling station.With a Dust Director® Power Blower positioned close to the drilling rig (picture, left), crews now have an effective safety measure that rapidly ventilates the site.

The blower may be left to run full time or hooked up to a monitor to easily disburse chemicals and debris that is released from the well head with clean, fresh air.

 

Fumes and toxians are always presence as they continually are being released from the earth during drilling operations.

Methane Gas, Hydrogen Sulfide Gas, Radon Gas, Radium 226 and Radium 228 are constantly being released at the well head exposing the crew to severe dangers.

 

Oil & Gas Crews always face the risk of exposure to highly dangerous air-borne hazards, requiring reliable ventilation.Fresh Air Application.Dust Director® Ventilation Blowers are used in any number of other outdoor applications as well.  From dust collection on the construction site to supplying fresh air and cooling for over heated workers or equipment.

Be assured that a Dust Director® Power Blower will give you the environmental control you need on almost any exterior and interior work site. 

 

 

Sizing the Blower
Formula to use for sizing a blower to your work area.
  1. Determine the Air Changes Per Minute.  Health and environmental inspectors usually specify the Air Changes Per Minute that they are looking for.  Usually it is 2 - 3 per minute.

  2. To determine the Air Changes Per Minute, calculate the Cubic Footage (L x W x H) of your Dust Containment Area.  Two examples are provided as follows:

EXAMPLE NO. 1

  1. Dust Containment Area = 15' x 15' x 10'.
    Cubic Footage = 2,250

  2. Using the 16" Power Blower @ 11,125 CFM (less 20% with the Dust Collection Filter Bag & 25' of Flexible Ducting attached) = 8,900 CFM

  3. 8,900 / 2,250 = 3.95 Air Changes Per Minute

In this example, you would need one (1) 16" Industrial Power Blower.

EXAMPLE NO. 2:

  1. Dust Containment Area = 25' x 25' x 25'
    Cubic Footage = 15,625

  2. Again, using the 16" Industrial Power Blower @ 11,125 CFM (less 20% with the Dust Collection Filter Bag & 25' of Flexible Ducting attached) = 8,900 CFM.

  3. 8,900 / 15,625 = .57 Air Changes Per Minute

In this example, you would need 4 to 5 Industrial 16" Power Blowers to properly ventilate your work area.

HD, Industrial Grade 16" Blowers - Single & Variable Speed Models
Dust Protected Motors: Totally Enclosed Fan Air Cooled Over Motor (TEFC).  Motors are totally enclosed and protected from dust damaged, constantly being air cooled by the fan's " air over motor cooling", blowers equipped with automatic overload heat sensor:
  • Overload Heat Sensor.  Prevents the motors from overheating, possibly due to a filter collection bag having insufficient air flow (the filter bag needs emptied.) 

  • Air Over Motor Cooling.  The high velocity screw action from the blower sweeps the air over the motor, guaranteeing that your blower operates cooler and with increased motor life.

HD Industrial Electric Power Blowers.  UL approved and certified by CSA International.  Powerful, durable and versatile motors are specifically used for providing both Positive and Negative Pressure Ventilation.  Motor features include:

  • No exhaust emissions, as opposed to using a gas engine which can collect carbon monoxide inside the structure that you are trying to ventilate.

  • Never needs an “oil change” or have gas go bad while sitting in storage.

  • Operates from standard residential 115V, 20Amp receptacle without tripping the circuit breaker.

  • Designed to be mobile.

  • A one horse motor is very economical to operate.

  • No Startup AMP Surge.  Control Module prevents start-up power surge by gradually increasing rpm from 0 to 1736 RPM.  Draws minimal amps on start up, gradually increasing to the maximum amp load, requiring fewer than 1500 watts of power (2,400 RPM).  Runs on standard 15 or 20 amp residential circuits and small generators of 3000 watts or less, with properly gauged extension cords.

BLOWER ACCESSORIES

High Efficiency Dust Containment Bags, 7' and 15' lengths.Silica Dust Containment Bag - High Efficiency
What good is moving all of the silica dust - if it isn't completely contained?  Both filter bags can be used with all 3 size blowers (16" single speed, 16" & 24" variable speed).  The open end of the filter bags are oversized, allowing them to be used on larger size blowers (up to 32" diameter).

Fitted over the shroud of the blower, the filter bags are secured using a hose clamp or ratchet strap.  

P/N:  737-500   4.5' x 15'   $345.00     

P/N:  737-490   4.5' x 7'     $260.00     

High Efficiency Silica Dust Containment Bags
  -  Made from 100% cotton sateen (canvas or blue jean / denim material)
  -  30" bag opening with large 5' and 11' nylon zippers for easy cleaning and emptying
  -  Filter bags are typically secured to the shrouds with a ratchet tie-down strap (see below).
  -  Filtration Efficiency Rating:  85% @ 0.3 um
  -  Maximum Air Flow from the Blower (Air speed the filter bag can handle):  11,125 CFM

  

FILTER BAG FEATURES
Large Collection Yields. 
7' filter bag easy holds 200+ pounds of dry silica dust before the filter sock needs cleans.  As you collect the volume and the filter bag fills, you'll eventually being to notice the debris reversing its flow into the bag and exiting on the intake side of the blower.  This is your sign that the filter bag is long overdue to be emptied and cleaned.  

Lower Suction Drop.  The smoothness of the media ensures excellent cake release from the surface of each filter bag.  While the homogenous nature of pore distribution prevents the particles from penetration and being retained in the filter media.  Both of these factors figure together to ensure a lower suction drop (longer operating times) than with conventional felt filters.

Lower Emissions.  The fineness and even distribution of the pores also creates a higher efficiency rating with dusts that contain a high proportion of fume (particles less than 3 micron).

Extreme Durability.  Made of a canvas / blue-jean denim type of material for rugged durability, wear and tear resistant.  A+ for efficiency rating and durability, even while being handled and dragged for disposal.  Re-useable, completely washable

DUST APPLICATIONS:  Limestone, Bio-Chemical, Lead Sugar, Cement, Precious Metals, Zinc Chloride, Zinc Oxide, Pigments, Fertilizer, Foundry Sane, Dyestuffs, etc.

OSHA's Silica Dust Exposure Law.  Are you in Compliance?

 

KNOW THE RULE:

OSHA's Silica Dust RuleOSHA's Final Rule to Protect Workers from Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica

Rule requires engineering controls (tools and equipment) to keep workers from breathing silica dust.

What is Respirable Silica Dust?  These tiny particles (known as "respirable" particles) can penetrate deep into workers' lungs and cause silicosis, an incurable and sometimes fatal lung disease.  Crystalline silica exposure puts workers at risk for developing lung cancer and other possible debilitating respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary and kidney disease.

How Much Respirable Silica Dust is Safe to Breath?  OSHA has issued their Final Rule to curb these respirable and kidney diseases in America's work force by limiting a worker's exposure to respirable crystalline silica to 50 micrograms per cubic over an 8-hour shift.

Packet of sugar - example of 53 micrograms.What Does 50 Micrograms of Respirable Silica Dust Look Like?  A good example may be one of those small paper packets of sugar or artificial sweeteners found in restaurants.

When used to demonstrate the dust concentration inside a building, the size of a football field (100 yards x 53 yards x 14' high).  The weight of one of those little packets is 53 micrograms, which is slightly over the PEL (permissible exposure limit) for Silica Dust of 50 micrograms.

Such a fine dispersing of dust at this concentration would essentially be invisibility.  It is also enough to put the workers at risk by contaminating the work area --- the size of a football field x 14' high.         

 

OSHA_Photo_1.jpg (848150 bytes)OSHA's Respirable Silica Dust Law - Effective:  23 June 2016.  Since 1999, the Dust Director® has been involved with various organizations aimed at improving the health and safety on construction sites.  On a meeting, dated 23 April 2014, the Dust Director® was invited to participate in a discussion about OSHA's upcoming Silia Dust Standard.  Besides the representatives from OSHA, the following organizations were also present:

  • NIOSH

  • CPWR (Center for Construction Research and Training)

  • Various university research scientists and professors

  • Health and environmentalist

  • Mike Kassman, National Safety Coordinator for the International Masonry Institute (IMI)

  • Jerry Scarano, Vice President of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craft Workers (BAC).

In past meetings, by the use of various air testing meters, NIOSH determined that the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) of a worker being exposed to silica dust should not be greater than 93.4.  [On record, NIOSH tested the Dust Director® System (dust control guard and vacuum), and determined the complete system "provided the greatest reduction of capturing silica dust at 94% than any other vacuum and dust guard that was tested.]

Currently, to simplify the understanding and importance of containing silica dust exposure, OSHA and all parties involved, have adopted the buzz phase of "visible dust," as their measurement of whether silica exposure is being sufficiently contained for both the workers and public.

 

OSHA_Photo_6.jpg (988907 bytes)CASE STUDY:  Dust Left to Fly from a Skyscraper ~ An interesting case study was provided by a Detroit contractor who was tuck pointing at a high rise office building in downtown Detroit, 35 floors above the sidewalks.  A summarization of his findings on silica dust exposure is as follows:

  • Two workers were tuck pointing an office building, 35 floors up, without the use of dust control

  • The thinking was, to leave the silica fly and let it disburse into the sky . . . that it wouldn't harm anyone or anything

  • As the safety coordinator for the company, he monitored the air quality of his workers

  • His air quality readings were as follows:
    >  Employee "A" was working in air quality that measured 85 times over the NIOSH established PEL
    >  Employee "B", working downstream from employee "A", was receiving a concentrated dose of dust as his air quality measured 135 times over the PEL!

While this case study shows how "visible dust" may be seen, more importantly was the moral obligation we need to take for our construction workers, the public, and the environment.
