  • Air Powered Combustible Dust Vacuums More Economical and More Powerful than Electric Counterparts

    Compressed air vacs have significantly lower upfront cost and lower yearly maintenance costs that quickly surpass the expense of compressed air production. There is a prevailing perception in the industrial world, attributable to the higher costs associated with producing compressed air, that air powered explosion proof vacuums cost more to operate. According to David Kennedy, General Manager of ...

  • Ineffective cleaning in generic baghouses

    ABSTRACT: Background In a typical “generic” baghouse application, the cleaning is accomplished by back-flushing the filter with compressed air that travels through an orifice hole in a purge tube (blow pipe) and through a venturi. A typical generic cleaning system allows dust to be filtered at an air-to-cloth ratio of 5:1. That means for every 5 CFM of airflow, there is 1 square foot ...

  • Everything Depends on Pressure And Maintenance

    Energy and cost efficiency of biological treatment plants Every biologically working sewage plant needs a compressed air station for the oxygen supply of the aeration basin. This station only works at the highest possible energy efficiency level if excessive plant pressure through the subordinated system, excessive intake temperatures due to insufficient aeration and deaeration, and ...

  • New Nozzle Technology “Cleaning More with Less”

    This technical paper will explain the new nozzle technology developed by Scientific Dust Collectors that allows high air-to-cloth ratio baghouses to use 80psig of compressed air instead of the industry standard 100psig.   The reverse pulse jet baghouse has been around for over 50 years and the cleaning cycle has not changed very much during that time. The cleaning cycle is the most important ...

  • Advantages of Using Flow Meters to Reduce Pressure Drop

    Plant operators rely on plant air pressures to maintain properly working equipment and systems. One of the most common problems affecting processing plants that utilize compressed air systems is the ability to maintain reliable air pressure throughout the distribution system. Insufficient air pressures may be due to undersized distribution piping, but it’s more commonly found that the cause ...

  • Improving the cleaning cycle in baghouse collectors

    ABSTRACT: Background The reverse pulse jet baghouse has been around for over 45 years and the cleaning cycle has not changed very much since that time. The cleaning cycle is the most important part of the dust collector because it controls efficiency and media life. In a generic baghouse, the cleaning system is comprised of a blowpipe that is located typically approximately three inches above ...

  • Innovation in radioactive wastewater-stream management: Part one

    Treatment of radioactive wastewater streams is receiving considerable attention in most countries that have nuclear reactors. The first Egyptian research reactor ETRR-1 has been operating for 40 years, resulting in accumulation of large quantities of wastewater collected in special drainage tanks called SDTs. Previous attempts were aimed at the volumetric reduction of streams present in SDTs, by ...
