Captasys is a proven system that optimizes the operation of dust collection systems of any size. It includes automatic blast gates, one or more variable speed drives for the blowers speeds, pressure controllers, operating sensors on production machines and a centralized control system.

The control system allows the opening and closing of blast gates according to production activities, controls startup and flow of the main blower, ensures proper management of transport speeds in the conduits in accordance with applicable standards and adjusts the suction pressure system, all this being done in a fully automated manner.

Thus, the dust collection system adjusts continuously it's capacity depending solely on the production equipment requiring dust collection, thus generating significant energy savings and releasing available capacity for the addition of other machines on the dust collection network. The resulting energy savings often reach 60% - 80%, as demonstrated by measurements validated by engineers working for electricity suppliers such as Hydro-Quebec.
