Quality Air Management (QAM) was founded by Gary Berwick, P.Eng. in 1985 as a sales and distribution company for the HVAC industry. Gary Berwick graduated from Carleton University, school of engineering, in 1974 and held positions of industrial sales, engineering and quality control manager, general manager (in a company turnaround) before founding QAM. The company, known then as Anemotrol inc, expanded its activity to selling air filtration products to industrial accounts. The company’s personnel were more suited to service the industrial ventilation business and it became the main business activity, and, started operating as the more appropriate QAM.

As QAM sold and installed dust collection equipment, it was found that manufacturer’s equipment was seriously lacking in performance and reliability. On most jobs, we had to modify the equipment and/or take extra steps at the processes to obtain acceptable results for our client. The manufacturers offered little or no assistance in troubleshooting these jobs, which is a common plight of the industry. In 2002, QAM teamed up with Bill Klimczak, the last living guru of dust collection and a man with 55 years of experience. QAM evolved to designing and manufacturing the most advanced technology in dust collection. It is a technology that was developed in 1979, but little known to this day.

Quencher Spark Arrestor   ULTRA-FLOW Dust Collector

QAM advanced this technology and refined it to the current generation of ULTRA-FLOW dust collectors for unmatched efficiency, lowest operational cost, and least maintenance in the dust collection industry on the market today. In 2003, QAM recognized the need for a simple and 100% effective spark arresting device to protect the dust collection systems from sparks and burning embers which set fire to the ductwork and dust collector itself. In collaboration with Mr. Klimczak, the QUENCHER spark arrester was developed. Other innovative products are continually being added to the product line such as the duct booster, retrofitting existing dust collectors to the new technology, mist eliminators, wet scrubbers and fulfilling a need for authoritative system consulting and troubleshooting.
