A Cabin for "Dusting Off"

Clean-up After Dirty Jobs

Tracking dust outside of the manufacturing space? Employees cleaning off with compressed air guns? Both of these are common practice in many manufacturing environments. These practices, however, are dispersing dust into the air and further contaminating non-manufacturing areas. Whether direct or indirect, employees are unnecessarily exposed to hazardous dusts.

Stop dust in its tracks with DustOff Gust, Keller’s new clean air cabin. At breaks, before clocking out, or when things get a little messy, employees can safely “DustOff” in the enclosed cabin without sending hazardous particles back into the facility.

The Process

  1. Employee enters cabin with protective gear and initiates the cleaning process by activating control elements.
  2. Four corresponding color-coded groups of nozzles blow air downward.
  3. During the cleaning process, the employee must turn in a circle to achieve optimal cleaning.
  4. The dust blown off is constantly drawn down to the bottom of the cabin.
  5. An attached dust collector pulls the particles in and filters them from the air.

DustOff Gust Benefits:

The cabin is made of bolted sheet steel construction with one or two doors. The top of the cabin has an open-grate designed for fresh air access, but downward airflow trajectory keeps dust from re-contaminating the workplace. All dust is pulled to the bottom of DustOff Gust and collected in a connected air filtration system.

Safety features are added to prevent DustOff Gust from running while the door is open. An automatic shut-off button is also easily accessible in all cabins.

Installation is very simple. DustOff Gust needs to be rigged in place, connected to an air filtration system via ductwork, and attached to a compressed air connection.

It is recommended that the cabin be installed inside, but an outdoor option is also available for placement in sheltered areas.

Control of the air nozzles is carried out by means of push buttons or by means of  handles. The control elements are marked with colors that correspond to a group of nozzles. This allows for cleaning from head-to-toe or in sections, whichever the employee prefers.
