KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, U.S. — Mac Process announced on Nov. 26 that U.S. Patent #8,157,878 was awarded to Jason Weber and Dwight Edelman of Mac Process for the SpaceSaver dust collector.
Up to 75% smaller than traditional dust collectors, Mac Process said the SpaceSaver offers long-lasting, leak-free cartridges. The SpaceSaver is engineered for NFPA compliance and includes a low emissions guarantee.
Customers and vendors spent a week with Mac Process engineers to deliver the prototype for this unique design. Because the design was driven by customer specifications, the SpaceSaver gets very positive response from plant managers, maintenance staff and workers, the company said. The SpaceSaver solves difficult dust collection challenges for ag/grain, cement, food, minerals, mining, plastics and woodworking applications.
With a footprint as small as 27-inches x 38-inches, the SpaceSaver is perfectly suited for applications with limited space requirements in terms of both cross-section and overall height — as well as in areas of the plant that aren’t connected to central dust collection systems. Many different cartridge styles are available to best fit the application, with sizes ranging from two to 48 cartridges per collector.
The SpaceSaver uses patented directed air flow fire to thoroughly pulse the cartridges. Directed air flow extends cartridge life and uses compressed air more efficiently than competitive models.
“Receiving the SpaceSaver patent represents another big step for our engineers. Our corporate philosophy is to be the leading experts and knowledge resource for our customers,” said Jay Brown, president and chief executive officer of Mac Process. “We live and breathe process. Our application knowledge and ability to engineer customer-driven equipment with tangible benefits are important competitive advantages.”
