Metal downdraft tables are increasingly popular in workshops that generate a lot of dust and fumes on their work surfaces. They pull contaminated air away and downward, removing it from the worker’s breathing area and preventing dirt and debris from building up on fixtures and equipment. Cutting, grinding, and welding are all applications that can be made safer and more efficient by installing a downdraft table. How a metal downdraft table works Downdraft tables are built-in ventilation systems for workstations. They are designed to catch and filter dust, smoke, and fumes. A blower installed under the table’s surface sucks in the air, which is enclosed in an airtight space to prevent contaminants from getting out. The air is then filtered through the ventilation system to eliminate any impurities before being sent back into the environment. What are the health and safety benefits of metal downdraft tables? Downdraft tables accomplish two important workplace goals: protecting employees and meeting industry-specific workplace standards. VeriCUT’s mechanical systems will deliver the following health and safety benefits to your facility: Minimize employee exposure to contaminated air. A metal downdraft table can help prevent coughing, sneezing, and throat phlegm build-up triggered by exposure to airborne pollutants. Your...
Downdraft cutting tables are gaining in popularity as an effective and sustainable method of dust and smoke collection and removal, particularly in plasma and laser cutting applications. While the plate is being cut, a blower pulls air out of the enclosed table underneath, preventing unhealthy smoke from escaping into the building. VeriCUT manufactures downdraft cutting tables with a zoned design, meaning that they are divided into sections (zones). A duct runs down the length of the table, with an opening in each zone where it pulls in smoke right at the cutting source. Our tables improve the air quality in manufacturing and production environments where dust and fumes are produced, with a smoke capture and removal rate of 99%. Because the system draws smoke only in the cutting area instead of across the whole table, no energy is wasted and you can save money. The VeriCUT system also has a dust control variable motor that automatically scales back when your production lines are closed down for the day. Although dust collectors rarely operate for over 30% of a production shift, they run constantly, which means that you’re paying for energy that you’re not actually using. Our software allows you to...

Using a duct collector in Ontario is a great way to improve the quality of the air in your shop. However, many people may not be aware of the additional benefits of dust collectors. VeriCUT offers high-quality dust collectors and proudly serves businesses across North America. This blog will explain how dust collectors work and will provide tips in regards to how to choose the right one for your needs.  What Are Dust Collectors? Dust collectors in Ontario can improve the quality of the air in your shop during mechanical, metalworking, woodworking, and commercial and industrial processes. More specifically, the VeriCUT system removes fine dust particles from the air, as well as other airborne particles and impurities by drawing them back into the table.  The downdraft cutting tables have special slotted air ducts in them, which can help you efficiently extract the particles from the air. When the cutting machine is idle, the speed of the motor in the fan of the dust collector will be reduced. With the wireless connection, the pre-programmed instructions will look at the machine’s variables and report both the stats and the machine’s status. This can result in an 80 percent reduction in heat and...

What if Energy Saving Could Ensure the Survival of Your Business?
If you operate a facility that handles powder and bulk solids, you’re probably generating hazardous levels of dust. In addition to being a general nuisance, very fine particulates can get into the lungs and cause serious health issues while certain types of dust, such as wood, grain, and metal, are a fire and explosion hazard.  With worker and site safety being paramount, your dust collector is an essential part of facility operation. This means that if it needs repairs or maintenance, you have to temporarily shut down production until the system is back online. Depending on how long work has to be halted, you can lose a lot of profit and productivity, and dust collector repair costs can add up. If your current dust collector has needed frequent repairs, you may assume that these expenses and downtime are a frustrating but necessary part of a busy operation. The good news is that there is a dust collection system that needs practically no repairs and can even save you money on your utility bills. The VeriCUT Solution VeriCUT downdraft tables are 100% mechanical systems, which means that your dust collector repair and maintenance needs are virtually zero. Unlike a lot of...
When you run a business that creates dust either as a product or as part of the manufacturing process, your employees and facility are at risk. For example: Fine dust particles can enter the respiratory system, aggravating allergies and potentially causing lung damage.Dust can accumulate on surfaces that can be hard to reach and clean, such as rafters or false ceilings. A dangerous combination of high quantities and a combustible nature can lead to dust fires and explosions. Dust collection is a critical issue in Ontario businesses that produce or work with raw materials, such as wood pellet plants, pulp and paper mills, and metalworking shops. There have been several incidents across the province in recent years, including a paper mill fire in Thunder Bay. Installing a modern and efficient dust collector in your facility can help you avoid business interruption and save lives. How Does A Dust Collector Work? Dust collectors have a single operating protocol: dirty, dust-laden air goes in and clean air goes out. The actual process will vary according to system type, which is important when you’re shopping for dust collectors in Ontario, but in general, they draw dust from the air through a filter, which...
