How does the EcoGate system work?
When a machine is turned on, the remote sensor signals the control unit and a motorised gate is opened to allow extraction for that machine. The controller determines the optimum fan speed, using variable speed technology. When the machine is turned off, the gate closes and the fan speeds adjusts, meaning you only use power when it’s needed. Maintaining minimum airflow in the duct system and opening additional gates when necessary will prevent sawdust setting in the duct system.
Dust extraction systems are likely to be consuming a large amount of electricity. It is possible that as little as 50% of dust creating machinery may be in operation at any given time, despite this, most dust extraction plants usually run at full capacity, with a fixed fan speed, 100% of the time.
Installing the proven Ecogate ‘Extraction-on-Demand’ system can help to reduce electricity consumption, saving energy and reducing electricity bills by up to 80%. An Ecogate system will typically pay for itself in just two years.
The Ecogate system has the power to monitor the activity of all machines in your factory, from 12 to 200 work stations, continually optimising the amount of power supplied to your fan.
