- The required power (cubic feet per minute or horsepower) for their particular application.
- The cost of electricity.
- The number of cartridges needed.
- Their maintenance/service labor rate.
The cost-savings calculator is based on a combination of the company's Protura nanofiber cartridge filters and patented pulse-blast cleaning technology.
According to UAS, its Protura filters can last twice as long as 80/20 cellulose or commodity filters (in any dust collector) due to their unique surface-loading characteristics. However, when used alongside of UAS' optimized dust collectors, the filters can furthermore consume less compressed air-which translates into even more cost savings.
