HVAC Design – Dust Collector


RPE were retained to remove and replace the existing Dust Collector with one of sufficient capacity to serve the school shop. Diversity was brought into the design for teacher only equipment, with a set of automated gates and electrical interlocks on the equipment. 

Project Scope

Our design for this project included the addition of critical safety components in compliance with the requirements of NFPA 664 “Standard for the Prevention of Fires and Explosions in Wood Processing and Woodworking Facilities”.
