  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...
