In May this year IDC received a contract to install a dust control system on a grain cleaning machine at a leading grain processing/distribution company.
The previous system was based on a “Simple Cyclone” separator. Although the separator did a good job in collecting grain husk it did not sufficiently capture the dust. This led to excessive emissions that were evident on the roof and surrounding building.
IDC installed a Reverse Jet dust control unit and fan to handle a total of 9000 cubic metres per hour. The unit has 90sqm of filter material manufactured from Anti-Static Polyester, ATEX certified explosion relief panel and a Rotary Discharge Valve. The site Chief Engineer states that the System now runs “with no emissions and collects all waste material at a convenient single point”.
