Engineering & Design: Combustible Dust

▸ Industrial Dust Collection   ▸ Combustible Dust   ▸ Central Vacuum System

Combustible Dust & NFPA Consultation

Our senior engineer is a member of five NFPA National Committees: 61, 652, 654, 664 & the Correlating Committee. This experience, in combination with over 100 years of combined dust collection system design makes uniquely qualified to assist our customers in evaluating and mitigating the risks from handling combustible dusts in both dust collection and material handling applications.

Dust Collection System Audits

We will send an experienced engineer to your facility for an on-site review of your existing dust collection system or systems. During that visit we will gather analytical data such as air flow, static pressure, fan amperages, differential pressures, etc. We will also make observations of dust generating processes and activities and consult with area operators to gain a better understanding of the objectives and issues. Following the site visit we will prepare a comprehensive written report that will provide a schematic flow diagram or isometric drawing of the system, evaluation of the performance (both measured and observed) and then conclusions and recommendations for system improvement.
