Boden and Ward solve stone dust issues with VertEx VP

Boden and Ward are a family owned stone masonry company based in Northampton but with a national footprint. Boden and Ward produce high grade stone work for a range of clients, ranging from staircases and fireplaces to refurbishment works for listed buildings.

In 2018, Boden and Ward identified an issue in their own workshops with stone dust exposure and identified the VertEx system from AirBench as a potential solution.

Following a site visit and inspection by Technical Sales Manager Chris Dawson, two key problem areas were identified. AirBench Ltd recommended the VertEx VPL system – an extracted wall with pulse-cleaning filter system and final H13 HEPA filtration.

B&W installed multiple VPL units in banks of 2 and have now had the units in operation for around a year. AirBench provide an annual service contract but otherwise the units are easily serviced in-house; and the pulse-cleaning system ensures the units maintain efficiency through the year – operators are able to quickly empty filters and remove dust for disposal.

VPL avoids the problems present in wet systems such as legionella risks and low filtration efficiency, as well as making waste dust easier to handle.
