Industry Application: Aerospace Metal Coating Product Manufacturing
The Problem/Solution: Manufacturers of specialty coating products used for aircraft engines, parts, and accessories use numerous processes to make their products, including detonation guns, plasma sprays, and HVOF. These processes create large quantities of dust and fumes that limit workers’ mobility and production and that are extremely dangerous to breathe.
We installed a new US Air Filtration pulse jet cartridge dust collector to safely remove toxic dust and fumes from the air. The new system protected employees from harmful fumes, improving employee working conditions and plant production.
Location: Houston, TX
Installation Date: 1998
Type of Pollutant: Metal dust and plasma fumes
Airflow: 13,000 CFM dust collector
Capture Method: Source Capture Method: Custom dust and fume collection booths were fabricated and installed within the plant in order to create a safe environment for workers and improve plant production.
Filtration Method Used: Pulse jet down draft cartridge unit, model #42-DCP-26-12.75
