Ducted wet dust collector

From 500 CFM to 30,000 CFM


The most efficient ducted wet dust collector on the market, the Uni-Wash series of dust collectors are capable of collecting dust down to 3 microns in size utilizing only 3″ water column of static pressure.

Wet dust collection is required for the safe collection of combustible metal dust (NFPA 484). This type of dust collection has also been used effectively in many other difficult applications in place of cartridge collectors such as food processing and pharmaceuticals. Our unique scrub design has been an industry standard for over 50 years and continues to lead the industry in wet dust collection efficiency.

Specifications 3,000 CFM and Under

​Printable Brochure 3,000 CFM and Under

NFPA 484 Compliant

With Industry Leading AccuScrub Controls

 
Uni-Wash wet dust collectors fulfill National Fire Protection Association Standard 484 (NFPA 484) for the capture of combustible metal dusts created in processes involving aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and zirconium (when purchased with the AccuScrub Control Panel). 

If your process involves any of the above materials, Uni-Wash wet dust collectors will greatly decrease the risk of fire and explosion in your facility – keeping your workers and your product clean, safe, and compliant. Units are self-contained and require little water usage under operation, after initial filling. Installation and start-up of these dust collectors are simple.

A Scrub Above

The large diameter, patented scrub cone assembly works above the water line.  This orifice/impingement design never clogs or loses airflow as with submerged internal venturi designs which gum-up and impede flow over time. There are no pumps or spray nozzles to clog or fail with the Uni-Wash design.

Low-Cost Operation

Using water as a filtration medium has its advantages. Collected dust resides as a sludge in the bottom of the sump for easy removal or can simply be drained away. There are no disposable filters to replace saving money and air borne contamination hazard. Our scrub design also leads to a lower static pressure requirement in the machine, which means less horsepower is required. This lowers the cost of the machine and saves energy over the life of the machine.


The Uni-Wash wet dust collector has been continuously manufactured for over 50 years and continues to be the leading technology for capturing dust without the added cost of cloth filter media. Initially designed for the safe collection of combustible metal dusts, manufacturers have utilized this technology in many other difficult applications with success in more recent years.

ProVent, A Name You Can Trust

High Efficiency Fan Assemblies

Scrolled fans substantially increase efficiency by reducing pressure needed to operate at a given CFM. We combine this with direct drive high efficiency motors.  The result is lower operating costs over the lifetime of the equipment.


Uni-Wash UC Popular Options

Performance upgrades for additional static pressure when needed for long duct runs or the use of after-filters.

A single strand or double strand sludge conveyor will remove collected dust from the bottom of the tank.  Typically used in heavy loading processes.


Stainless steel construction is an option on all ProVent products.  Uni-Wash products have an option for the tank (bottom half of collector) to be stainless steel and the upper housing to be mild steel.

An immersion heater can be installed for wet collectors that will be installed outside where the temperature may be below freezing.

Adding a silencer will decrease the noise emitted via the exhaust air 7-9 decibels 


We offer four control options for all Uni-Wash products. We are a UL 508A certified panel shop and all panels are manufactured to work seamlessly with our dust collectors.
