  • How a wet dust collector can prevent a violent explosion (and more!)

    Explosive dust is a major concern among metal finishing operations, and recent changes in the National Fire Protection Association regulations have made compliance more difficult. Metalwork grinding and sanding produces a fine metallic dust that, even after being filtered from the air, can smolder, catch fire, or even explode violently if it’s exposed to a spark. Aluminum, lithim, ...

  • To prevent blinding in dust collection systems, consider filter type, filter size and selection of the filter media used

    All dust collection systems, regardless of size, share a common problem—dust blinding. Simply stated, blinding is defined as when dust particles plug the holes in a filter and stop the flow of air through the filter, resulting in the dust collector performing poorly. All types of collectors, whether stand-alone units, cyclones or full-scale baghouses, are subject to blinding. To better ...
