Negative Pressure Dust Collectors

Kernic Systems is now offering negative pressure (vacuum) dust collection systems from Hocker Polytechnik. They operate without the need for noisy material handling fans that operate under positive pressure, pushing the material through the system. The negative pressure dust collectors operate opposite to positive pressure systems and pull the material through the system.

Design options include both indoor and outdoor installation options. The collector is sized to the system, and allows for multiple output capabilities (two or more balers or compactors). Negative pressure dust collectors are the highest quality and synthesize German engineering and North American throughput expectations. The collectors deliver long service life, superior reliability, meet and exceed all current health and safety standards, and generate the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

At Kernic Systems, our OneSource™ for Simplicity solution takes your systems integration from design to startup. With our team of dedicated and experienced engineers, we customize your system to suit the needs and requirements of your business.

Complete system integration

For over 40 years, Kernic Systems has provided energy efficient, complete scrap recovery systems and services to a wide range of markets, including, but not limited to: Corrugated Box Plants, Folding Carton Manufacturers, Printers, Envelope Manufactures, Coffee Filter Manufacturers, and Paper Converters.

With over 40 years of experience and our OneSource™ for Simplicity, we have the solution to all of your scrap recovery requirements.

Cleanliness at a new level

Negative pressure dust collection systems offer unparalleled levels of health and safety. Operating under negative pressure drastically reduces ‘leakage’ commonly found in positive pressure systems. This dramatically improves dust levels, helping your plant/production facility stay ‘spotless’ in comparison to a traditional positive pressure system.
