Our plant has experienced canopy hood issues causing dust collection failure and ongoing filter media plugging. Can you share some examples of dust collector problem solving you’ve done related to these two issues?
My facility is a food processing plant, and I know I have a relatively short time to complete my dust hazards analysis (DHA). However, I’m confused and frustrated by the need to have so many NFPA standards to accomplish the required DHA. Can you give me some advice?
We just completed our DHA and were told our dust collection systems don’t work properly. In fact, the dust collection systems have been deemed a combustible dust hazard because of poor design, especially the hoods. Why is hood design so important?
