The Importance of Engineering in Dust Collection System Design

The Importance of Engineering in Dust Collection System Design

Designing a dust collection system is more than creating a solution that only captures dust. In fact, a highly engineered system can make an impact on almost every facet of your organization – from bottom-line impacts to affecting environmental health and wellness. A custom-engineered dust collector and system considers your specific plant needs, compliance requirements, existing equipment integration and more. The best part? It doesn’t have to be complicated. The right dust collector is engineered to perform from the start – whether fully custom to your application or more off-the-shelf – to ensure plant performance and success long-term.

Explore the importance of custom engineering when designing a dust collection system.

Leverage Expertise from Proven Engineers

To have a well-engineered dust collector, you need a team of talented engineers. Tapping into external engineering expertise is more important than ever as companies opt to reduce their number of in-house engineering staff – especially during periods of economic uncertainty.

Internal engineering teams are focused on designing high performing solutions that optimize operations, ensure quality and more. A partner singularly focused on dust collection technologies allows your team to focus on these core operational priorities, enabling access to critical engineering expertise from initial dust collector design to ongoing maintenance.

Absent this expertise, you may find yourself with a dust collector not properly suited for your work environment. An improperly sized collector, for example, may easily become overwhelmed or clogged with large volumes of highly abrasive dust – causing immediate disruption to your operations. This can be due to inadequate airflow, improper duct design, incorrect filter technology or a lack of material recycling components – the list goes on.

That’s why it’s important to work with a team that visits your facility to perform a comprehensive engineering audit to:

Analyze your materials, process flow, production environment and on-site requirements.

Determine proper collector size, pickup points, airflow, hoods and more.

Identify the proper fan to ensure proper airflow for ducted systems.

Recommend dust collection system components such as recycling systems to complete your solution.

Ensure Productivity & Employee Safety

Following a comprehensive on-site engineering audit, your dust collection partner will be equipped to design a system that is built to perform in your challenging production environment.

By now, you know that all dust is not created equal. Proper engineering is required to ensure that your dust collector can effectively capture dust at the source – no matter the particle size, abrasiveness or moisture content. Armed with input from the engineering audit, dust collection experts can also ensure that your custom system is properly sized to match the workflow of your plant – and the volumes of dust generated through your processes. This, in turn, prevents fugitive dust from settling on nearby surfaces, minimizing equipment wear and tear and ensuring optimal performance.

Tapping into expert input can also help you glean insights into how to safeguard employees from potential risk. To learn more about how a highly engineered dust collection system can optimize employee safety, click here.

With a solution specifically engineered to your application, you can increase reliability, reduce downtime and improve overall plant efficiency.

Maximize Your Dust Collection Investment

Custom-engineered dust collection systems must be viewed as an investment for your operations, not an expense. While potentially coming with a higher up-front cost, the right high-performing dust collector can help manage total cost of ownership by eliminating ongoing repair and replacement costs.

If expansion is in your future, for example, your dust collection experts can lay the foundation for future scalability without significant capital expenditures to grow your system.

Taking a tailored approach to dust collection system design ensures that the system is built to perform and built to last. To achieve an extended lifespan, don’t forget the role that ongoing maintenance plays in mitigating unplanned downtime and avoiding hefty regulatory fines.

Ensure Compliance with Today’s Leading Regulatory Bodies

Companies in heavy industries like Ready-Mix, Cement and Aggregates are subject to strict regulatory requirements related to air quality, employee safety and environmental protection. Standards set by regulatory bodies including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Mine Safety and Health Association (MSHA) and the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) are put in place to ensure maximum workplace safety.

Partnering with a dedicated dust collector manufacturer can make it easy to comply with strict regulations and avoid incidents that put employees at risk. In addition to building the clean air technologies that control fugitive emissions, a trusted partner will equip you with the information you need to fill out questions regarding dust collection systems on permits – model numbers, Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM), discharge elevations and estimated emissions for our custom technologies.

Compliance with regulations also demonstrates an organization’s dedication to following best practices and prioritizing employee safety, which can positively impact employee satisfaction. At the end of the day, a highly engineered dust collection system can help facility owners avoid unhappy employees, reputational damage and even potential fines or penalties associated with non-compliance.

Tap Into Our Engineering Expertise

An effective dust collection system is an essential part of keeping an industrial facility clean, safe and compliant with strict regulations. When faced with the choice between an off-the-shelf solution or a custom-engineered system, it’s important to understand your operation’s unique requirements, and the solution that will help you protect your people, assets or your work environment. Whether you need a pre-manufactured solution due to time and cost constraints or you are ready for a dust collector and system uniquely tailored to your application’s unique needs, make sure you work with a team that holds the engineering expertise you need.
