School shop air filtration is an important aspect of maintaining good indoor air quality in educational settings where students may be exposed to potentially harmful airborne particles and pollutants. Air filtration systems can help to remove pollutants such as dust, smoke, and allergens from the air, as well as reduce the transmission of airborne viruses and bacteria.

K-12 & Higher Education Air Filtration Applications

School shop air filtration is an important consideration for educational institutions to ensure the health and safety of students and staff. There are various types of air filtration systems available for use in schools. The type of system needed will depend on factors such as the size and layout of the building, the level of filtration required, potential for combustible dust, and the budget available.

Different markets, such as K-12, vocational, and higher education, may have different requirements and regulations for air filtration systems. For example, some states may have specific guidelines for the use of air filtration systems in schools, and certain types of vocational schools may require specialized filtration systems for the particular types of pollutants that are present in their workshops or laboratories.

How We Help

    We specialize in the design, engineering, and supply of school shop air filtration for the K-12, vocational, and higher education markets. Our team of professionals can help decide and supply dust collector systems, mist collectors, fans, and much more that perfectly fit each individual application.

Usually, dust collectors for schools are designed to remove wood dust. Baghouse dust collection systems are often effective solutions for wood dust, as they are designed for larger and bulkier materials. Collection systems for education environments may also be based upon hours run, machine utilization, and energy efficiency. In addition to baghouse systems, 3B Air Systems also provides the following parts, services, and solutions:

  • Cyclone collectors
  • Shaker filter collectors
  • Cartridge collectors
  • Fume arms
  • Explosive protection components
  • Spark detection and extinguishing systems
  • Ductwork diagram or layout design
  • Specification and schedule writing
  • NFPA compliance review for combustible or flammable dust

We offer as much consultative service to engineers as possible with proper knowledge of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), and mechanical codes relating to dust collection.
