Wood Processing

Wood manufacturing operations have many different wood working machines such as saws, routers, shapers, planers, sanders and wood hogs.  It is not uncommon for a furniture plant to have 40 – 50 different wood working machines and air volume requirements above 100,000 cfm.

Often, these systems are split into smaller dust systems. This is especially  if there is a division of a “rough” end and “finish” end where both operations are not always running at the same time.

The MCF PowerSaver is the solution for this type operation.  It’s the most energy efficient filter on the market today, and serves well in cold climates because the MCF does not use compressed air.
