Scientific Dust Collectors (SDC) has completed its ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 199-2016 test lab and recently completed testing on the company’s reverse pulse-jet baghouse collector. ANSI/ASHRAE 199-2016 is a six-stage testing method to objectively determine the performance of an industrial pulse-cleaned dust collector. The testing provides a performance matrix by which an industrial dust collector can be measured. The test measures and documents emissions, differential pressure, and compressed-air consumption. The company conducted testing using SDC’s standard design and nozzle cleaning technology, and an air-to-cloth ratio of 10.6-to-1.0 was used on the required fine powder.
