At PS&D, we have the expertise to specify the right equipment for your application and integrate it with your new or existing systems and processes. Dust collection systems cover a wide array of applications and materials driven by volume, particulate size and type. We have specified and installed almost every type of collection unit or system successfully.
Dust collection systems work on the basic formula of capture, convey and collect. First, the dust must be captured. This is accomplished with devices such as capture hoods to catch at its source of origin. Second, the dust must be conveyed. This is done via a ducting system, properly sized and manifolded to maintain a consistent defined air velocity required to keep the dust in suspension for conveyance to the collection device.
Finally, the dust is collected and disposed of or recycled. This is done via a variety of means depending on the application and the dust being handled (some of which are shown here) . It can be as simple as a basic pass-through filter, a cyclonic separator, or an impingement baffle. It can also be as complex as an electrostatic precipitator, a multistage baghouse, or a chemically treated wet scrubber or stripping tower. PS&D engineers have experience in all of these applications.
