Dust collection systems have been in use at plants in all industries in a myriad of applications around the world. All too often, the system operation can be poor due to a variety of issues with design, operation, and lack of maintenance. Even with a properly designed air mover, mistakes in design can lead to duct plugging, leaks, and system imbalance.
This webinar will discuss the five most critical rules to follow when you implement/design a dust collection system. These include:
- Determine the proper minimum conveying velocity
- Use balance-by-design branch layout
- Properly size the air mover
- Avoid common duct/piping design mistakes
- Don’t forget about the air/solids separator

During his 24 years at Jenike & Johanson, he has designed handling systems for bulk solids including cement, coal, limestone, plastic powder, food products, and pharmaceuticals. He is the cement industry specialist at Jenike & Johanson, as well as the technical specialist for dust explosions and powder electrostatic behavior. Eric routinely lectures on the storage, flow, and pneumatic conveying of bulk solids for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ (AIChE) continuing education series, as well as for private companies, in-house courses, and conferences.
Powder and Bulk Engineering is presenting many webinars throughout 2020 to meet the educational needs of those who are currently handling powder and bulk solid substances. These webinars are an extension of the educational information we provide to you each month.
If you are working on a certification or licensing program that allows Professional Development Hours, CSC Publishing Inc. will (upon request) provide a Certificate of Participation for our educational webinars put on by Powder and Bulk Engineering. One certificate per registered participant will be sent if the webinar is viewed. You should check with your employer or local agency to confirm their specific PDH requirements. In many cases, our educational webinars will contribute toward these hours.
