Wet Dust Collectors: What About Efficiency?
Collection efficiency cannot be measured by conventional methods related to dry collectors since the dust collected in a wet dust collector is not trapped in a web of fibers as in media type dust collectors. Rather the dust particles are "wetted" due to the mixing action in the collector as the air and water change flow directions and impinge into fixed baffles. Hydrotron wet collectors have a proven collection efficiency in all kinds of grinding, sanding and buffing applications performed on most any metal. A Hydrotron collector has never failed to offer high efficiency in these types of operations if the water level is properly maintained. If your application is not metal finishing, you should consult the factory for the most up-to-date recommendations.
