In any industrial production environment, dust explosion prevention strategies and measures are essential to stop flash fires, explosions, or regular fires from occurring related to combustible dust produced and accumulated within the facility. Combustible dust hazards present very real dangers for fires and explosions in industrial production and processing plants and facilities. Dust explosion prevention… Read more »
In industrial environments, choosing the best dust collector should not be guided simply by the size of the unit. Installing an ill-fitting, undersized, or too large of a dust collector can lead to a number of issues all of which relate to performance and higher energy and maintenance costs. Therefore, the best dust collector is… Read more »
Differential pressure in a baghouse filtration system is an observable measure that ensures the system is functioning properly at all times. When significant changes occur in pressure, it’s an indicator that some type of issue exists which needs to be addressed immediately. A thorough inspection of the unit will need to be conducted to identify… Read more »
Leak detection powder is used in leak testing procedures during regular dust collector maintenance or when troubleshooting potential emissions issues. Leak tests can be conducted as part of periodic preventive maintenance or in the event that a noticeable drop or change in the differential pressure of the system occurs. The application of leak detection powder… Read more »
Because the role of industrial dust collectors is so crucial to manufacturing and industrial environments, possibilities of a dust collector fire are met with serious concern in manufacturing facilities. Without preventive measures in place, the potential for a dust collector fire is very real. A simple spark can result in a combustible dust fire that… Read more »
Dust collector accessories are key components necessary for the successful operation of industrial baghouses and dust collectors, the large-scale air pollution control and filtration systems found in manufacturing plants, warehouses, factories, mills and other industrial environments. The successful operation of dust collectors cleans and enhances air quality inside and out of buildings.
A pulse jet bag filter also called a pulse jet baghouse or pulse jet dust collector is a self-cleaning dry filtration system. The pulse jet dust collector cleaning system removes particulate matter and dust from the surface of internal filter media with bursts of compressed air. Pulse jet bag filters are the most common type… Read more »
Dust collector maintenance plays a vital role in ensuring that industrial dust collectors operate reliably and efficiently. Dust collection systems are engineered to collect, separate, and filter harmful particles and dust from the air in factories, processing plants, manufacturing environments, and production facilities. When properly designed and maintained, a baghouse dust collector will surpass 99.9%… Read more »
Baghouse dust collectors are a type of fabric filter air-material separator employed for particulate removal from manufacturing and other industrial operations to keep dust and solid particulates from entering the workplace or being released to the atmosphere. In effect, baghouses are industrial-scale fabric filter systems used as air pollution control devices.
A cyclone dust collector is the simplest and lowest cost air-material separator. Most commonly found in grain and woodworking facilities where fibrous dust is managed, cyclones frequently serve as low-maintenance standalone dust collectors requiring no compressed air for cleaning. Cyclones can achieve high collection efficiencies when dusts are over 20 microns in size. Cyclone dust… Read more »
