For wood products and manufacturing operations, sawdust is inevitable and gathers on every surface. More than a nuisance, this dust is highly combustible and can lead to catastrophic fires. Combating its accumulation is a constant struggle for our customers. It often requires costly manual cleaning measures and the need for housekeeping shutdowns to try to maintain a clean, safe environment.
We are pleased to offer a solution to our customers through our most recent partnership with SonicAire, a global leader in dust management technology to help solve combustible dust challenges. SonicAire combustible dust fans provide safety, economic and regulatory compliance solutions to facilities that generate fugitive dust such as wood products manufacturing operations.
SonicAire is more than a clean-up tool — it provides a proactive loss control solution through preemptive dust control. Its proprietary technology combines two methods to control dust flow:
- High-Velocity Airflow
SonicAire fans use high-velocity airflow to keep overhead areas clean. The strength of this airflow effectively prevents the accumulation of combustible dust particles on overhead structures in the facility.
- Thermal-Current Control
Typical airflow includes upward thermal currents which naturally lift and carry particles to overhead areas of facilities, where dust quickly accumulates and can become a fire hazard. SonicAire industrial dust control fans prevent these upward thermal currents from holding dust in the air.
As part of our partnership, PLM customers who are new to SonicAire will receive a one-time $1,000 credit towards the purchase of SonicAire products. For customers who have previously purchased SonicAire products, they will receive a one-time credit of $500 on a future purchase.
