Plastic Dust Collector


AQUEST CORPORATION was called upon by a Vermont plastics manufacturer to provide a fully NFPA 654 compliant 16,000 CFM dust collection system. Aquest provided a turn-key combination cyclone-cartridge dust collector to capture plastic dust in full compliance with all OSHA and NFPA combustible dust standards. Aquest designed and installed the following system components: cyclone separator and cartridge dust collector, deflagration isolation, properly sized interconnecting ductwork to maintain 4,000 ft/min minimum transport velocity, spark detection and suppression system (not pictured, located inside building), and high-speed abort gate for return air, which provided a tremendous energy savings and a sizable incentive from their utility provider
