Industrial Portable VOC Collection with Explosion-Proof Motor and Starter
The PDB comes as a Downdraft/Backdraft Collector. It can also be set up with one or two articulating arms.
Custom blend of filters for sticky paint and plastics odor elimination
Normal cartridge filters plug up from paint spray in a matter of seconds. The PDB-VOC has a custom blend of fiberglass Rigid Cell, Poly Pad, and 4mm carbon or potassium permanganate cells. Each cell holds 28 lbs. and the PDB can hold 3 of them. This blend of filtration will do a much better job on sticky fumes and odors than particulate filters will.
The Single Arm PDB-1500 collector is designed to capture and filter sticky fumes and solvents from applications like soldering or plastic extrusion-venting, while returning clean air into the workspace. It is equally as useful in 100’s of other industrial applications where multiple filtration stages are needed within a compact unit. With the PDB units you can eliminate 90% of odors and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that are generated in all kinds of applications where sticky, smelly fumes and vapors are being generated.
- TEFC or Optional Baldor XPFC, F1 Class - CLI GP D; CLII GP F, G - Division I Explosion-Proof Motor.
- IP55 or Optional NEMA 7/9 Explosion-Proof Starter.
- Optional VFD.
Dual Arm PDB VOC Collector
VOC fumes and odors present a serious workplace hazard that needs to be captured and filtered at its point of source.
The PDB-1500 is designed to extract VOC fumes and odors and prevent them from entering an operator’s breathing zone. We use a variety of 4mm granular absorption media that are in trays within the filter cabinet to scrub out nasty odors and gases. Having the right amount of “dwell-time” of the VOC within the carbon is essential to the success of the unit.
Our sales engineers will analyze your solvents SDS and we will recommend either carbon, pellets, potassium permanganate, coconut shell, or a custom blend. Then we select the correct blower size designed to achieve optimum dwell-time.
PDB Downdraft Booth
The PDB-1000 and PDB-1500 Downdraft Booths are a 30 inch wide, and 48” inch wide range of downdraft booths, designed to capture and filter overspray paint can fumes and solvents while returning clean air into the workspace. It is equally as useful in 100’s of other industrial applications where multiple filtration stages are needed within a compact unit. With this collector, you can eliminate 90% of odors and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that are generated in all kinds of applications where sticky, smelly fumes and vapors are being generated.

- Can be set up as a Mist Collector
The Wall-Mount version shown here can filter sticky fumes and odors, or it can take a .3 micron @ 99.97% eff HEPA for toxic dusts.
The Custom PDB-1500 high porosity activated carbon granules are specially designed to absorb most industrial VOC fumes. Depending on the VOC being generated, we can offer customers several different types of carbon pellets as well as other absorption medias, like potassium permanganate and coconut shell. Send us the MSDS sheet and we will select a type of carbon that is specific to it. Standard carbon works well for a lot of applications, but other types of carbon may work even better when matched up correctly with the fume being generated.

Custom blends of activated carbon and potassium permanganate pellets can cut plastic fume odor by 90%
A 1.5HP TEFC is standard on all units. There is also an option for a Class 1 Grp D/Cl 2 Grp F&G 1.5 HP Explosion-Proof Motor. Standard filters for paint fumes consist of a ring polyester pad to handle the sticky paint fumes, a MERV 14 fiberglass filter to remove fine particulate, and two (or more) 28 lb. refillable activated carbon trays for odor.
The PDB Backdraft is the Backdraft version of the our VOC and sticky fume collector line. The Backdraft Hood allows free range of motion around the shop that is especially useful for spraying, sanding and grinding materials that give off heavy odor.
HEPA filtration can be added at the factory or in the field. The Portable Fume Booth can also be used as a mist spray-off booth by changing the filters and adding a drain.
The Custom PDB-1500 is very versatile and is highly customizable and efficient. The poly-pad pre filters are only $17.00-ea and frequent changing of them can greatly prolong the life-span of the more expensive filter stages that come after it.
The Custom Fume Booth units are built in the USA.
With Explosion-Proof Motor
For most Non-HAZLOC applications the standard TEFC Motor is safe as it is a sealed motor in the clean-air stream. For applications where there might be a presence of ambient airborne flammable vapors, we like to recommend these options.
