Ducted Extraction Systems

For medium to large woodworking facilities, AES design, supply and install our own range of modular bagged filter units. The modular design of our ducted extraction systems make it possible to enlarge filters to meet rising demand. Filters are available in a range of formats from a simple bagging system to a rotary valve fed conveying system, transferring waste to a trailer, skip or burner.

AES have installed ducted systems in a large range of workplaces, including wood processing plants and specialist woodworking workshops. These systems are designed to the needs of the client to ensure the maximum safety of workers. Each system is unique in its requirements, and our specialist team of qualified designers will help ensure that the best possible system is created for the process and working environment.

Our range of systems are suitable for outdoor mounting, meaning that internal space of the workshop floor does not need to be intruded on. Systems can connect to machines directly, or by means of hood. Often machines can be adapted in order to obtain the best possible extraction, and our installation and testing teams can ensure that the safest possible extraction method is used.

The AES Modular filter system is certified according to the ATEX European Directive for explosive dust.

See below for a variety of systems available for design, supply and installation by AES.

Large volume extraction for all types of wood chips and dusts are catered for by our “modular” filter sleeve bagging units. Up to eight modules can be joined together to supply a variety of extraction volume requirements up to 16,000C.F.M.. Each module can be fitted with either plastic waste collection sacks or steel bins for easy emptying. These systems are particularly useful in situations where wooden products are being manufactured.
Rotary Valve Filters are designed to discharge all extracted waste material under negative pressure into skips, storage silos and pneumatic transport systems. This type of extraction filter is modular in construction and features automatic cleaning, a high level of filtration and full return air option. The rotary valve system pushes the waste collected by the system into a larger container system, this means that a rotary valve system is ideal for very large levels of waste, such as in wood processing plants.
The AES chain filter has been designed to meet the needs of medium to large woodworking companies. The emphasis is on easy capacity expansion and the capability of handling the highest volumes of extracted waste material produced by modern high throughput workshop machinery.
