Back & Side Draft Systems
1. What is it?
Back and Side Draft Tables are similar to Down-Draft Tables. “Back Draft” and “Cross Draft” are ideal solutions when extraction methods such as self-supporting extraction arms and other such systems prove to be inappropriate for the application. The contaminated air is drawn in from the back or side panels of the work area. These units come with or without filtration systems and can also be combined to create complete enclosures for whatever the application might be.
3. Will it make my workplace safer?
Our collection systems are very effective. however, correct configuration is paramount in guaranteeing the unit performs as it should. Our goal is to make it as easy as can be to configure your system to your specific needs, and have sales representatives happy to help you along the way to buying the right product.
4. Suitable industries & environments

5. Available models and variants
For a list of available models, check out our catalog below.
6. What criteria to consider
  • What is the velocity or the air required to pull the fumes and dust horizontally into the table? (Capture Velocity: Add up the CFM for all of the inlets that will run at once)
  • What velocity at the Table surface is required to achieve the appropriate Capture Velocity? (Face velocity)
  • Do I have enough filter media in the collector? (Air to cloth ratio)
  • Will it stand up to the working environment (Eg: is it made from Plastic or Steel?)
  • Filter cleaning: Does the filter cleaning system really work in your application?
  • What will be my filter maintenance and energy costs per year?
  • Are there any tertiary risks such as fire, explosion, etc., that I need to consider?
7. Preventing the spread of airborne fumes & chemicals
According to WHO estimates (WHO, 2000), unintentional poisonings led to 300 000 deaths in 2000. In fact, industrial workers are exposed to a variety of health hazards every day.

We are dedicated to diminishing that figure, but it only works if the correct equipment is used, and configured correctly. Our team works to make the logistics of these questions as straightforward and cogent as possible. We will work with you to provide you with the best extraction system that fits your worker's needs. From accessibility and usability to reliability and longevity.

Panel Filter PB Dust Control System - Back & Side Draft Systems
panel-filter-power-booth-modules-dust-fumes-gases - 3D Main Image 300
The free-standing Panel Filter PB Dust Control Booth is a complete dust collection system that is easy to integrate into industrial environments.

The Self-Contained Control Booth is designed to remove airborne contaminants from a worker breathing zone. Can be used as a stand-alone unit or as part of an expandable dust control booth.

The high pressure of the direct-drive fan maintains a typical flow rate of 5500 CFM and contains twelve filters that have been redesigned to assure high initial efficiency and dust holding capacities.

Main options include:
  • Various Filter Options
  • Filter Media
  • Preventative Maintenance Pressure Gauges
  • Variable Frequency Drives

PB Dust Control System - Back & Side Draft Systems
pb-back-draft-module - 3D Main Image 300
The free-standing PB Dust Control System is a self-contained dust collection system that eliminates ductwork systems in industrial environments.

The stand-alone Dust Control System has a built-in self-cleaning filter system and is designed to remove airborne contaminants from a worker breathing zone.

The high pressure of the direct-drive fan maintains a typical flow rate of 4500 CFM and contains high-efficiency filter media with large-volume dust holding capacity. The diffuser design reduces are velocity, reducing overall costs and premature filter loading.

Main options include:
  • Various Filters & After Filters
  • Preventative Maintenance Pressure Gauges
  • Variable Frequency Drives
Slotted Backdraft Hood - Back & Side Draft Systems
back-draft-hoods-and-filter-booths-gases - 3D Main Image 300
The steel Slotted Backdraft hood draws contaminants away from workers’ breathing zones without hindering movement.

The heavy-duty construction Backdraft Hood is designed to remove airborne contaminants from workstations/breathing zone. The slotted design allows constant airflow of large particles throughout the system and is compatible with ductwork to exhaust contaminants into the atmosphere.

This unit maintains a typical flow rate between 525 CFM and 1050 CFM.

Main options include:
  • Acrylic Side Shields
  • Preventative Maintenance Pressure Gauges
  • Variable Frequency Drives
  • Accessories

ZINCOCAR DF - Back & Side Draft Systems
zincocar-df-gas-voc-odor-filter-module-booth - 3D Main Image 300
The Zincocar is a filter wall with high-efficiency cartridges designed for suction and filtering of dust, smoke and fumes.

The ZINCOCAR DF is a "Plug & Play" filter wall, with easy maintenance, maximum filtration efficiency, and stand-alone positioning.

Available Options:
  • Variable Frequency Drives
  • Modular extended roof
  • Filter Options
  • Light
  • Sound proof plenum for air outlet
  • Side modular wall in Lexan or in galvanized sheet metal
Minispray - Back & Side Draft Systems
minispray-dry-painting-booth-fan-and-filters - 3D Main Image 300
The Minispray is a modular unit that uses a double filtration system to pull paint particulate away from workers' breathing zones and shop air.

The Minispray unit functions means of a centrifugal fan mounted at the top of the unit, where negative pressure is created, drawing air through the filters. The flow draws the particles of paint suspended in the air to the filters without any dispersion or overspray to the surrounding environment.

The first stage of filtration blocks the larger particles of paint. The second stage blocks the finer particles with a fiberglass filter. The air which is then purified of solid pigment is expelled by the fan and out through the chimney kit.

The Minispray dry painting booths are designed to ensure versatility, modularity, and efficiency. They consist entirely of zinc-plated panels bolted together. The front of the unit has filter holding grooves set for housing the dual filtering system. On top, is the spark-proof centrifugal fan.

Available Options:
  • Filter Options
  • Variable Frequency Drives
Zincowall - Back and Side Draft Systems
The Zincowall is a Modular Vertical Suction Wall for Dust & Fume Extraction. This unit is designed to expel large quantities of fumes and dust. With the frontal extraction of fumes and dust being carried to internal filtering sections of the wall, or to an existing aspiration and filtration system.

The Zincowall efficiently cleans the air keeping air clear of contaminants, so that facility's air meets the requirements of occupational safety.

The Zincowall uses a frontal extraction system specifically designed for the high airflow pulling of dry fumes and dust. Extremely versatile and perfect for numerous types of applications.

This suction wall is the ideal solution in the event that big quantities of contaminants are produced in a short period of time.

The units are usually positioned in front of the work area where a localized aspiration system is not suitable. Suction walls in general are used with high airflow rates and high concentrations of fumes and dust.

The Zincowall System is modular which means they can be positioned around the perimeter, one after the other, allowing for continuous capture of the contaminant and creating a barrier of extraction.

Available Options:
  • Filter Material
  • Variable Frequency Drives
  • Motor Selection
