Solutions for Abrasive Scale/Explosive Lubricant

Abrasive Scale/Explosive Lubricant

PROBLEM: a highly abrasive mill scale combined with an explosive lubricant (sodium stearate) required both heavy duty construction and explosive mitigation features.

SOLUTION: 10000 cfm highly abrasive, explosive dust collection system. The system includes a double access platform, with load off into a truck-loaded containment vessel. It is also is NFPA 2014 compliant. It has a fast acting passive inlet isolation valve per NFPA 69, explosion vents on the sides under the white domes, and a unified hopper with one single rotary valve per NFPA 654.

The customer is still using the first set of cartridges due to a constant volume control unit (vfd) with the same pressure drop as they had when originally installed. The system was installed summer of 2013.
