  • Dust collection dilemma: ostrich egg dust

    Rick Peil from the Toolking Superstore was presented with an interesting dust collection dilemma. Tamera Seevers creates unique fine art out of ostrich eggs (www.tameraseeversstudio.com). Carving and finishing the ostrich eggs takes up to three months and creates a very fine, ostrich egg dust. Her problem was with her 1-micron bag on the dust collection system, the dust was still escaping into ...

  • Whirl/Wet Dust Collectors Preferred for Pharmaceutical Overspray Collection

    A major multi-national manufacturer of pharmaceuticals and vaccines chose Whirl Wet technology for a new pill coating operation. The aqueous-based sugar solution created heavy loadings of sticky overspray in the 3 micron range. This blinded the existing baghouses after just six batches despite the use of PTFE cartridges – (the best available option for baghouses used in this type of application.) ...

  • Efficient Dust Collection, Plus Product Recovery Benefit Fertilizer Manufacturer.

    Mears Fertilizer manufactures fertilizers and packages a recovered by-product, brine, for use as “ice melt.” Collecting dry fertilizer dusts from manufacturing and packaging operations is a major operations priority. Mears had used various types of dry “bag house” equipment, but results had been unsatisfactory. For a new installation, the company was determined to avoid bag houses. The area where ...

  • Horween Leather: Whirl / Wet Dust Collector Combines a High Efficiency Wet Dust Collection with Low Maintenance and Operating Costs.

    For leather fines and other lightweight, porous materials, dry collection has been thought to be preferable to wet because of the material’s buoyancy. Horween Leather Company challenged that assumption. Originally, two baghouse systems collected particulate, but problems arose with each baghouse. First, cold winter dryness caused high levels of static electricity. Resultant sparks in the ducts ...

  • Dust monitoring

    Generally, two different approaches are used to measure the amount of dust deposited on a surface; Determination of the soiling of a surface, by a change in its properties; Determination of the quantity of dust deposited, by weight. WHAT IS DUST? Dust is a generic term used to describe fine particles that are suspended in the atmosphere. Dust comes from a wide variety of sources, including soil, ...

  • Suspended Particulate Matter Definition - SPM and RSPM

    There is much confusion about how to define PM10 particulate, but if articles indicate the definitions they used then the information can be compared with information from other studies. A concern is that the dust measurement equipment for PM10 particulate matter might not be designed to meet the same defined standard as used in the articles which could lead to some discrepancies. ...

  • Erickson Cosmetics: Whirl / Wet Combines High Efficiency Wet Dust Collection with Low Maintenance and Operating Costs.

    Production was accelerating at Erickson Cosmetics, a Chicago-based maker of talc and cornstarch-based products for the Mennen Division of Colgate-Palmolive and other companies. The 320,000 sq. ft. plant is highly automated and, while the primary powder line operated within regulatory guidelines for dust control, Todd Nelmark believed there were strong reasons to consider automatic dust ...

  • Uni-wash wet dust collectors reduce industrial dust hazards

    Metal dust — it can be a fabricator’s worst nightmare. In particular, the combination of dry aluminum dust and steel dust is literally a disaster waiting to happen. The National Fire Protection Association has a list of metal dusts and the specific PPM that the air can hold of each before the serious risk of an explosion arises. As a worksite approaches the PPM safety limits of one or ...

  • The Use of Particulate Emission Monitors to Support Arrestment Plant Operation and Upkeep

    The operation of filtration type arrestment plant can be optimised by the effective use of Particulate Emission Monitors (eg Filter Leak Monitors and Filter Performance Monitors). Particulate Emission Monitors are installed throughout the broad spectrum of industrial processes to satisfy regulations (IPPC, Part B Guidance Notes, WID and LCPD) for emission limit enforcement. In addition, where ...

  • Short-term variations in ambient particulates and their sources in Taichung, Taiwan

    Ambient particulate measurements were carried out using TE-PUF sampling and a Universal Air Sampler between 8 March and 25 April 2001 at Taichung. Samples were collected every 6 hours beginning at 0100 LST (Local Standard Time) each day at two sites, one at a university campus and the other at a roadside. Chemical species (Cl-, NO3-, ...

  • Keep your air clean with Wet Dust Collectors

    Wet dust collectors use liquid — often but not always simple water — to capture and separate dust, mist, fumes, and other particulate matter from a stream of flowing gas — often but not always simple air. Some wet dust collectors spray liquid in a sheet across the stream of gas; others bubble the gas through ...
