This Month’s Focus: Dust Collection

Dust hazards analysis for simple dust collection systems

Performing a dust hazards analysis is the best way to evaluate your plant’s risk for a dust explosion.

Custom dust collector replaces worn, noncompliant unit

American Gilsonite Company (AGC) mines, conveys, and processes uintaite, a naturally occurring hydrocarbon resin used to enhance a variety of products. The company’s 35-year-old, abrasion-patched, out-of-compliance dust collector needed replacing, and AGC chose Sly Inc. to handle the job.

Industrial vacuum system improves company’s production process

Producing 8 million pounds of powder per year left AM Stabilizers needing a more efficient way to deal with spilled product and airborne dust. A visit to a trade show prompted the plant superintendent to contact Vac-U-Max to fill that need.
