Dust Collectors

Planning for an industrial dust collection system redesign

When industrial dust collection systems are changed, the change may alter hood and duct flow rates. Therefore, it is imperative that the effects of the changes are taken into account to reduce risk to worker safety and ensure continued compliance with environmental regulations. Reasons to plan an industrial dust collection system redesign Facility managers may…

Setting up and troubleshooting your pulse controller

Baghouse filters are cleaned when compressed air is blown into the filter to release dust buildup. A pulse controller times the burst of compressed air that is used to clean baghouse filters, a practice that improves baghouse efficiency and increases bag life. Types of pulse controllers Pulse controllers come in two types—a simple timer and…

Mechanical Separation

CYCLONE DUST COLLECTORS AND CLASSIFIERS To remove heavy particulates from air streams, such as in cabinet or furniture making, IVI uses mechanical separation filtration. Two common mechanical separation devices are cyclone dust collectors and classifiers. IVI designs these devices to fit any application to meet pressure drops and space requirements. CYCLONE DUST COLLECTORS Air enters…

Baghouse Dust Collectors

IVI has designed, fabricated and installed hundreds of long-lasting baghouse dust collection systems throughout North America for foundries, mining, pulp and paper, and a number of other industries. Our design team has custom-engineered baghouses to provide the most efficient capture and removal of dust for cleaner air quality and safer work environments.   IVI CAPABILITIES  Excel…

Budgeting for a Dust Collection System

We’ve put together a handy checklist to help you set a budget for a dust collection system. Everything from your dust collection system’s location to regulatory requirements and decisions about filters, waste discharge, stacks and fans will affect the overall budget. System testing and maintenance requirements are other factors that need to be considered. This checklist breaks down…

Dust Collection System Considerations – Part 2

Construction, Start-Up, Training & Maintenance Phases Building and Managing a Dust Collection System Many factors affect the performance of Dust Collection Systems. In a previous blog post, Dust Collection System Design Considerations – Part 1, we summarized five key considerations for the engineering and design phase of a dust collection system. The post was based…

Dust Collection Systems Considerations – Part 1

Dust collection systems are complex Many factors impact the overall effectiveness of the system. In order to ensure your dust collection system reaches peak performance, it’s critical to have the proper groundwork in the engineering and design phase. In the article, Guidelines for Operating and Maintaining Industrial Dust Control Exhaust Systems, the Engineers Collaborative identifies…
