Dust extraction

The wood and sawdust extraction sector is a strategic area for the woodworking industry.

The wood dust filtration and extraction systems are used to vacuum chips, scraps and sawdust generated by any type of machine. The dust extraction technology can be applied to all machines, including those for joineries (planers, bandsaws, moulders) or industrial use (squaring machines, edgebanding machines, graders, panel saws, CNC machine Centres) where residual dust needs to be filtered. With joinery vacuum systems, wood chips and sawdust - suitably processed - can be recycled and transformed, for instance, into pellet boiler fuel. Dust build-ups in joineries or woodworking facilities can increase the risk of explosion in an environment: for this reason, ATEX Directives on how to handle these materials should be strictly observed.
