Dust Pickups & Hoods

Pickups, Shrouds, Nozzles, Hoods


This is the “source” end of the dust collection problem.  It may consist of a hand-held nozzle,  a  shroud around a saw or grinder, a fume hood over a work station, or an entire painting booth.  The “pick-up” end of the system must be carefully designed to meet the particular needs of the problem at hand and to minimize the power, airflow, and pressure requirements to be imposed on the dust collector design.

The “Pickup” end of the problem also determines whether a medium-pressure dust collection system or a high-pressure vacuum system will be needed.
