Dust Control Products

You are here:

VETS offers an extensive product line that accomplishes tasks such as creating circulation in the plant, filtering air that is delivered to the workplace, and collecting dust and debris produced from everyday working conditions.

Failure to implement proper dust control practices, features and products creates an unhealthy environment for workers and causes damage to expensive equipment. The accumulation of dust in a building creates a real fire and explosion risk that can be fatal.

A Range of Products for Every Need

  • Centrifugal Fans – blowers that move air (or gases) most often through tubes or duct work.
  • Air Circulators & Cyclones – fans that help keep air from getting stagnant while also delivering a comforting breeze.
  • Baghouse Filters / Dust Collection Filters – fabric air filters that collect dust and other particles and separate them from the clean air supply.
  • Industrial Vacuum Cleanup Systems – apparatuses that remove any rogue dirt, debris and dust from the work area.

All of these components contribute to the overall performance of a facility’s dust control system. There are many different options within each category depending on the size of facilities, intended workload and type of debris most commonly being removed.


Air circulators are used to prevent buildup of material on beams and equipment. In their simplest form, air circulators and cyclones are fans with vastly more power than a standard residential box window fan.

NFPA regulations state that dust accumulation is not allowed to exceed 1/8”. With proper air circulation in a facility, dust exposure is kept below the TLV (threshold limit value).

VETS offers a wide variety of air circulators across numerous airflow ranges (CFM (cubic feet per minute).


  • CFM High – The amount of cubic feet per minute is the volume of air that the fan is capable of producing. Each application is different and will require detailed specs to determine proper fan sizing.
  • Mounting – Typical mounting is usually on a ceiling or wall depending on equipment placement and building layout.
  • Oscillating – A majority of industrial air circulation products are stationary but we also offer oscillating models if needed. The oscillation of the fans allows for larger areas to be serviced, thus requiring fewer fan placement overall.
  • Miscellaneous – There are a number of other features to look for in air circulators and cyclone fans, depending on your intended use, including blade diameter and voltage.

VETS has the perfect air circulator for all of your needs. Contact us to help you find the right one.


Centrifugal fans perform one of the most important functions of your air management system. The fans increase the volume and speed of the captured air, offering maximum control in both low capacity and high capacity settings.

Centrifugal fans are the most common type of fan in the HVAC industry and are often used to move gases and other kinds of materials through building ventilation systems.

When looking for centrifugal fans, consider:

  • Air volume
  • Static pressures

Understanding how much air you need to move and the level of resistance will help you choose the correct design for your intended use.


  • Airfoil fans for moving high volumes of clean air at low-to-medium static resistance
  • Backward curved fans designed for high volume applications at high static pressures
  • Backward inclined fans for moving high volumes of air at a variety of pressures
  • Forward curved fans for moving high volumes of air at medium pressure


  • The main difference between backward facing curved fans and forward facing models is their intended use. Backward curved blades are designed mostly for intake suction. Pressure builds up in the impeller which means a protective scroll housing is not required.
  • Forward curved blades move air with force. These types of centrifugal fans are especially beneficial when a high volume of air needs to be moved through a tight and confined space. Forward facing bladed centrifugal fans are usually outfitted with a scroll housing for added durability.

The fans are used in both a functional manner such as heat delivery, as well as removing dust and debris.

Our baghouse filters and dust collection filters allow your machinery and equipment to operate effectively without compromising the internal air supply.

The baghouse in your facility is more elaborate than the filter found on a residential HVAC system. Baghouse filters are comprised of numerous tubes that attract particles instead of merely getting in their way.

Baghouse filters collect dust by:

  • Separating contaminated air entering the baghouse or cartridge collector via cyclonic action or drop box (depending on the model)
  • Large debris particles fall into the baghouse hopper while smaller debris particles accumulate inside the baghouse filter fabric
  • A cleaning mechanism in the baghouse uses one of the three methods to clean off the filters (pulsed air, constant air, or a shaker motion).
  • The clean filtered air circulates out the top of the baghouse or dust collector

Baghouse systems are often used in steel mills and power plants, as well as lumber, food and chemical production facilities.

Contact VETS for more information about baghouse filters.


Implementing an industrial vacuum cleanup system is an integral part of an overall dust control system. Industrial vacuum cleanup systems are not your standard shop-vac. They are high-efficiency units with varying capabilities for dust and debris collection.


  • Operate 24/7 for a clean facility during all shifts
  • Collect all of the facility debris in one location and evacuate it to a central container
  • Reduce time and labour costs of operating and emptying traditional shop-vacs
  • Keep a cleaner and safer working area while preventing machinery and equipment from building up with dust and debris
  • Assist in the cleanup process by eliminating the blow-down of larger non-combustible dust

System Design, Manufacturing & Installation

The success of upgrading or implementing a dust control strategy in any facility starts with an efficient design, followed by craftsman-quality fabrication and expert installation, all the while recognizing that ‘the devil’s in the details’.

Dust Control System Assessments

Simply having a dust collection system installed is not enough to ensure a safe and efficient facility forever. Dust collection system assessments are recommended to ensure your system and its components are working as intended

Service Repairs & Rebuilds

Implementing dust control in your facility should include regular maintenance and inspections to ensure less wear and tear on your system.
