K&B Duct's new AutoAire cut-off gate is designed for energy and equipment-cost savings for any shop with a central collection system for dust, fumes or mists serving intermittently operated machines. The gate automatically opens needed duct branches when a machine is turned on, while closing off inactive branches and machines. According to the company, this fully utilizes the pick-up power of a collection system by applying as much vacuum as possible, only when and where needed, allowing a smaller fan—with a smaller energy bill—to handle a system with many branches.
