The plastics and rubber market are unique in the chemical industry, and C&W DustTech technologies offers dust collection solutions that can handle any kind of dust that is associated with the plastics and rubber compounding industry, including:
Our high-performance equipment captures dust from several points, including rail cars, grinder evacuations, and packaging and storage-to-process points.
Dust from processes involving plastics and rubber can have fibrous content which can be challenging to handle. The fibers and steamers from plastic and rubber dust can get stuck between dimple pleats of conventional cartridge filters ̶ making them very difficult to remove during pulse cleaning and building up pressure drop on filters.
To cope with these difficult materials, our proven team has designed an improved cartridge dust collector which uses a pleated bag. The bag lasts longer, is easier to clean and minimizes bridging ̶ due to vertical filter spacing.
Our team can provide general and specific dust collection to keep your plant and product clean. The custom equipment can handle the small rates required in some molding processes to the highest rates required for large scale molding processes and railcar loading/unloading.
Specialized expertise in combustible dust is critical to decreasing risk in plastics and rubber manufacturing and compounding applications. Plastic dust is a combustible material and those operations generating or handling plastic dust can require special mitigation strategies to minimize fire and explosion risks. Our team of experts can help you understand NFPA standards and ensure the safest system possible is specified and installed.
