This book examines a topic which is an indispensable part of any  production line in the wood industry: the extraction, separation,  handling of dust and chips, ensuring clean air in the workrooms, and  avoiding health, fire and explosion risks. All scientific backgrounds of  these problems are not fully known today, and efforts should be made to  fill this gap. The work contains significant new derivations and  calculation methods and experimental results to support design and  evaluation methods such as particle size distributions depending on wood  species and machining, terminal velocity of small wood particles,  aerodynamics of suction hoods, a detailed analysis of particle  separation in cyclones, selection and evaluation of separation  efficiency for appropriate filter selection, energy consumption and  transportation efficiency of pneumatic conveying, a comprehensive theory  of transport ventilators. Several new details of dust explosion are  also included. The calculation methods, practical solutions and  recommendations are supported by physically well-established  explanations providing long-lasting knowledge.
