Dust can be our number one enemy if we work in a company where dust collection is absolutely a must. When you are in a an environment that generates a lot of dust, you cannot ignore this problem that can threaten the lives of people who happen to find themselves in a place full of dust.
So how can one choose his perfect dust collection system? I will be more than happy to give you a few pointers here that should prove to be useful to you.
If you want to choose the right system for gathering dust, you will be taking into account a few factors such as the actual dimensions of your shop where the dust is generated, what type of tools you use there, and the work habits of those who work there. You might want to think about those few factors before ordering your dust collection systems to avoid any unnecessary surprises. The reason I am saying this is that you might overdo it sometimes. Very often, even a modest dust collection system will be enough for you, while there might be situations when you might need a better system than you thought you would.
If your shop is very small, you might need nothing more than a portable dust collection solution, but if your shop is bigger than average, you will need to invest into something bigger and better. One thing to keep in mind though is no matter how small or big your shop is, you will want to place the system as close to your machinery as possible to make the gathering of dust and debris as efficient as possible.
Whatever you do, make sure that you know what you are doing. Even if you are in a hurry and it seems that you need to buy something fast, take your time to come up with the best solution for your needs.
