Christchurch Joiner Installs New Dust Extraction

Dust Extraction System – Case Study

Paul Renwick Joinery, one of Christchurch’s most experienced joiners with 40 years in the business, have recently upgraded their manufacturing facility in Sockburn.

Egmont Air, specialists in dust extraction, installed a new Egmont dust extraction system at Renwick’s to provide a clean, safe and dust-free factory.

Mr Michael Renwick, Manager of Paul Renwick Joinery, comments how he “wanted a system that provided increased suction levels but also a collection of dust in a clean and trouble-free manner – Egmont Air has provided this in every way!”

The new extraction system also includes an energy-saving system using Egmont Air’s unique pressure stabilizer system to monitor the live suction pressure and automatically adjust the fan speed to match the number of extraction ports open. This system offers a significant saving, in fact, a 50% saving in power consumption can be easily achieved with a small reduction in airflow.

Powerful suction was also important to Michael, the original system was underpowered and so Egmont Air specified a high-efficiency fan and mounted this inside the factory, Michael is surprised at how quiet the new system is and reports he is “very happy” with the new Egmont Air system

Egmont Air offers a large range of products and solutions for joinery shops and timber processors anywhere in New Zealand. The Egmont Air dust extraction systems are a popular solution due to their modular design and heavy-duty construction design which focus on balancing high suction performance with energy savings.

A free on-site evaluation service of your particular application is available to determine your exact dust extraction needs. A preliminary scope is defined, documentation of machinery layout, problematic areas and issues are identified as well as future plans. The on-site evaluation covers 11 critical points including airflow and pressure testing where relevant.  Egmont Air provides a complete on-site service from ‘technical advice’ to ‘design & installation’ of turn-key projects.
