In the modern industrial plant where grinding, machining and other dust or particle producing equipment is being used, maintenance of a clean air environment is mandatory. Dust collection removes solid particles from the airflow in an effort to improve or maintain the quality of air in the occupational work environment. 


There are many different types of dust collection systems in the industry using various methods to separate the dust from the air stream. Examples of dust collectors include:


 - Bag Type Collectors
 - Cartridge Type Collectors
 - Cyclone Collectors
 - Electrostatic Precipitators 
 - Mist-Collector Scrubbers

 - Wet Collectors


Fires are quite common in dust collection systems. They can be caused by a variety of sources, including overheating coils, motors, static discharge, spontaneous combustion, friction and burning debris drawn into the ventilation system. These fires can occur within the exhaust duct as well as the dust collector itself. If appropriate protective measures are not taken, a significant fire can occur, producing a serious hazard to the production in that area and a risk to the entire plant. Quick detection and suppression of such a fire will not only minimize damage to the collector but also eliminate the fire risk to its surroundings.
