DUST EXTRACTION SYSTEM AT RESEARCH FACILITY
An independent LEV survey at this cement additives plant had condemned the existing dust extract system.
The filter was insufficient and being bypassed, duct velocities were too low causing drop-out of dust, and capture was insufficient causing employee exposure to airborne dust. Action was urgently required to address these issues.
Exeon were asked to provide a solution with excess extraction capacity for a future production facility.
Exeon installed the Scorpion™ bench which when merged with the existing bespoke connection created an “all-round” downdraft and backdraft capture for that part of the process.
A Nellie™ extraction arm was also installed, to capture the airborne dust on a sack tipping hopper. We installed two spare connections for future use.
All connections were served by a Rhino™ central autoshake extractor unit, positioned outside for ease of access and maintenance.Download as a PDF Contact for a quote
