Shot Peening Dust Collector

AQUEST CORPORATION provided a heavy-duty industrial dust collection system for a specialty metal and high-grade alloy revert management facility. The 15,000 CFM, (36) cartridge dust collector was designed to ventilate several shot peening machines that produce highly combustible titanium dust. The unit replaced their old, non-compliant dust collectors which were a safety and maintenance issue. The Aquest system was designed and installed in accordance with the NFPA 484, and featured explosion venting, deflagration isolation and inline spark suppression devices. Additionally, Aquest’s system included automated blast gates linked to PLC and VFD controls. This allowed the customer to conserve energy and get a sizable incentive from their utility provider.
