Company finds cartridge-filter dust collectors to be the gold standard
An international seed company works with an engineering firm to install a new dust collection system in one of its facilities.
Headquartered in Johnston, Iowa, Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc., a DuPont company, develops, produces, and markets a full line of top-quality seeds, forage, and grain additives, providing services to customers in nearly 70 countries. The company operates a production facility in Laurinburg, N.C., that conditions, treats, and packages soybean and wheat seeds grown by local farmers. In fall 2005, the company decided to upgrade the facility by installing new equipment, including a more efficient dust collection system. To do so, the company worked with an engineering firm that has upgraded many of its other facilities in the past.
