Dust Collection: Case Study
Cartridge Dust Collector
Industry Application: Precision Engineered Rubber Parts and Tooling
The Problem/Solution: A high technology manufacturer of aerospace rubber parts and components needed a new, turnkey dust collection system to remove rubber dust and fumes created during mixing of rubber ingredients.
We manufactured and installed a new US Air Filtration pulse jet cartridge cartridge dust collector from the ground up which included the system, ductwork, and electrical. The collector was outfitted with high efficiency MERV 15 rated Nanofiber filters and cleaning nozzles to reduce energy consumption and improve system efficiency, performance and filtration. The MERV 15 filters offered superior filtration than standard filters and the new system significantly improved air quality within the work environment.
