Abstract Description of an auxiliary ventilation system consisting of 2 devices: a hood and a jet stripper. The hood is a narrow, low-volume, high velocity slot hood located between a belt surface and a worktable; the push device is a jet stripper located inside a driven pulley hood opposite the operator side. Advantages of the system: it reduces wood dust emission, does not interfere with the operator's work, requires minimal maintenance and is economical.
