4 Reasons to Have an Industrial Ventilation Analysis

In the past several years, we have seen an increase in customer requests for industrial ventilation analyses. While the need to become silica standard-compliant has driven many of those requests, more customers also are realizing the benefit an engineering study can have on their operation and bottom line. Why Conduct an Industrial Ventilation Analysis In…

Mine Ventilation Systems Designed for a Unique Industry

In the above-ground mining industry, so much relies on getting dust collection right. Silica dust collection must meet strict MSHA standards. And you need to make sure that your mine ventilation system isn’t carrying away good product. The combination of your product and process is unlike any other industry. That requires expertise in mining ventilation…

The Ingenuity and Engineering of Dust Collection Hood Design

When it comes to industrial ventilation system design, the hood is the most crucial piece to ensuring the system functions effectively. Why? Because that is the critical point where particulates are captured and removed, leaving behind a cleaner, safer working environment. To ensure hoods fit a facility and its manufacturing process, dust collection hood design…

Designing a Dust Collection System: R&D Lab Makes the Invisible Visible

The performance of a dust collector or industrial ventilation system depends on the type and size of particulate, collection points, humidity and more. Every industrial plant is different. Therefore, not only do various scenarios have to be taken into consideration when designing a dust collection system, but calculations should be tested to ensure system performance….
