HSL Dust Extraction System


HSL, a family run handmade furniture production company, have expanded their production line and moved to a bigger refurbished factory in Batley, West Yorkshire.   The factory shut down for two weeks and within this timescale Cades were able to efficiently relocate the dust extraction system without causing any disruption.

The old factory, which was much smaller in size meant there wasn’t much space between the fan and the filter unit, but the extra distance between the two machines at the new site resulted in the requirement for over 300 metres of fast clip ducting to serve 30 machines.

The additional pressure of the increased furniture production meant Cades had to upgrade the existing fans in order to cope with the bigger workload.

In addition to this, the existing spray booths had served their time and to keep up with health and safety regulations two new spray booths and discharge stacks were installed.
