The greenBOX Latest Ecogate Control Units


November 15, 2023 | Warren Shoulberg

The newest state-of-the-art in on-demand dust collection is Ecogate’s new greenBOX.

Ecogate’s latest product introduction is a state-of-the-art control unit designed to optimize dust collection and provide electricity savings of 50% to 75%, the Los Angeles-based company says.

“The system is designed to be fully automated, so users are expected to just use their workstations. The control unit manages the entire dust collection system: it opens and closes workstation gates, starts and stops ventilation fan(s) and dust collectors, adjusts the fan(s) speed, and maintains minimum transport air velocities in the duct system.”

The company says by utilizing real-time air velocity, volume, and pressure measurements, the device continuously monitors machines’ activities to determine the airflow requirements. Air velocities, volumes, and pressures are measured at gates, calculated at branches, and assessed at the system level. The greenBOX control unit automatically maintains minimal air flow velocities throughout the system to prevent material from settling in ducts. 

“With the greenBOX, you can rest assured that your industrial ventilation system is running at optimal levels, saving you a lot of money on fan operation costs and on makeup air if you are using heating and/or air conditioning,” the company says.
