A global manufacturer of honeycomb core structural boards in Michigan needed to make an upgrade to their dust collection system.
With four large CNC routers and plans to add two more, it was time to make some improvements to the air filtration system as well. The manufacturer had an indoor, small, non-compliant dust collector which lacked the necessary explosion protection. The large manufacturer began their mission of choosing, purchasing and installing a new dust collection system.
The company had purchased multiple dust collectors and parts from A.C.T. Dust Collectors for other divisions of their facility. They were familiar with the quality parts, valuable systems and outstanding customer service from A.C.T. Dust Collectors. This made choosing a supplier easy. One of the mangers at the manufacturing company reached out to the team at A.C.T. Dust Collectors for advice on selecting the correct dust collection system.
After reviewing their size requirements and application, the ACT TLM 117-10 baghouse dust collector was determined the best option. A baghouse was recommended because wood as well as plastic dust would be produced by the CNC routers. The ACT TLM 117-10 was the right size and type for the dust being produced in this application. The team also added floor sweeps to the job, making cleanup of the work space easier.
In addition to increasing the capacity of their dust collector, it was important to make sure they were compliant with regulations related to combustible dusts. The team at A.C.T.’s expertise in that area coupled with the extensive knowledge of our local rep made it possible for A.C.T. Dust Collectors and its partner to offer a compliant solution that provided all the airflow and performance that was required.
