Pipe Foundry Case Study
General Plant Ventilation & Baghouse
Industry Application: Utility Pipe Manufacturing
The Problem/Solution: Due to local air regulatory agency requirements, our customer was required to install general ventilation systems to keep fugitive dust from escaping the facility into the environment. As part of the ventilation system, a new baghouse was needed to target factory dust emissions and improve plant production and air quality.
We installed new ventilation systems and pulse jet baghouse dust collector to capture dust and fumes. The advanced pulse jet technology collector allowed for better dust capture, improved bag cleaning, and required less maintenance than their older dust collection model.
