Abtex recommends the use of a dust collection system in conjunction with our deburring units. The standard recommendation is approximately 800 CFM per deburring head.
With the creation of aluminum dust, any dust collection system must be explosion protected. NFPA standard 484, section 4, addresses the generation and collection of aluminum dust. Wet-type dust collection is the most practical means of evacuating aluminum dust from the work area.
Abtex Corporation has manufactured fiber abrasive brushing tools since 1978 and in 1980, we introduced the first Abtex end deburring system for aluminum extrusions.
Since our founding, we have continually expanded our brush line as well as our line of machinery.
