When you run a shop or other business that produces dust on a daily basis, a dust collector that breaks down frequently can threaten the health and safety of your employees. Even if it doesn’t stop at the worst possible moment, plugged filter bags can cause the fans to work harder and faulty valves can leak compressed air, causing your utility costs to shoot up.
The best solution to these manufacturing challenges is a dust collector that needs virtually no maintenance or repairs. Enter VeriCUT.
VeriCUT vs. Other Systems
VeriCUT dust collectors are specially-designed to offer the most efficient dust extraction in the industry. Its zone-by-zone ducting system only draws smoke from the immediate area of cutting work being done, instead of across the entire table, resulting in a smaller dust collection system that offers higher dust recovery rates and a superior return on investment.
VeriCUT is compatible with practically all applications that produce fumes or dust, including:
- Food processing
- Chemical processing
- Plasma cutting
Efficient operation ensures, among other things, that your dust collector repair costs are practically zero and you save money on utility bills.
Utility Cost Differences
One case study involving a plasma cutting table with a 13,000 cfm, 40hp dust collector showed the impacts on utility costs:
- Compared to other 40 hp dust collectors in facilities operating 80 hours a week, there was a 70% reduction in power consumption, resulting in electricity savings of $9,187 per year. (The VeriCUT system cost only $3,937 to operate while the other system cost $13,124).
- In terms of heat savings, the VeriCUT system cost only $1,848: a difference of $4,312 compared to the annual heating cost of $6,160 incurred by the other system.
The cutting table without a VeriCUT dust collector had an overall annual utility cost of $19,284, compared to $5,785 in the unit where VeriCUT had been installed.
Why such a huge difference? Although operations that generate dust and fumes seldom account for over 30% of a facility’s operating hours, most dust collection systems operate 100% of the time, resulting in waste of electricity that can be as high as 80%. With VeriCUT, the dust control variable motor automatically scales back on shut down. You can also specify the set-back parameters to achieve an ideal balance of system-readiness and energy-efficiency.
Return On Investment (ROI)
Although VeriCUT may be more expensive than other dust collection systems, its robust system, which requires virtually no maintenance or dust collector repair, produces a typical first-year return on investment (ROI) of 161% while the 10-year ROI is 1600%. This is one of the best demonstrations of that old saying, “You get what you pay for.”Installing a VeriCUT dust collector is a significant investment in the future success of your business.
