The Wensley Group, Reddich, manufacture bespoke and mass produced joinery using traditional wood crafting skills along with the latest cutting edge technology and 21st century materials

Solution Required

  • A low energy dust extraction system and a biomass boiler to provide heat for a new production facility.
  • An extraction system to cope with hand sanding, orbital sanders and large quantities of fine and harmful dust in the workplace.
  • Minimise risks to employees by extracting dust directly at the source.

Solution Provided

  • A dust control system that disposes of solid waste and collected dust.
  • Workplace heating solution using Biomass Fuel.
  • Savings on land fill and rising factory heating fuel costs.
  • Attracting Renewable Heat Incentive payments and helping to protect the environment.
  • Significantly lower CO2 footprint.
Dust Control System
  • An Air Plants self-cleaning Transair Filter, Baghouse Dust Collector.
  • Specifically designed to present a very low resistance to the incoming air, combined with High Efficiency centrifugal fans operating at an efficiency of up to 80%
  • Low noise levels.
  • Exceptional reliability with the minimum of service requirement
Biomass Combustion
  • The Talbott C Range Automatic Heating Unit
  • Advanced combustion control techniques, ensuring longevity as well as meeting stringent emissions standards.
  • Durable, robust, British manufactured unit.
Central Vacuum System
  • RUPES HE900 turbine Hivac Central Vacuum System together with a high pressure ring main to serve all of the work benches.
  • Orbital sander plugs into ring main creating suction through the sander, picking up dust as it is created.
  • Two stage separation filter with automatic filter cleaning by reverse jet pulse operates with continuous maximum efficiency.
Wood Shredder
  • An Untha LR1000 Shredder.
  • Reducing solid waste, transfering it to the combustion system via the extraction system.
  • Unique hydraulically actuated swing pusher (load dependent) presses the material against the rotor which is equipped with indexable cutters.
  • The cutters grab the material and shred it against the static cutting bars and perforated screen.
  • A highly reliable system and with exceptional build quality and standard 3 year warranty.
