Solutions for EPA Visible Emissions

EPA Visible Emissions

PROBLEM:  Activated charcoal  used as a raw material in the production of carbon steel was lost in a black dust cloud at the truck dump bin when it was unloaded.  The result was raw material loss, EPA visible emissions, and employee dust exposure.

SOLUTION: The activated charcoal unloading site (dump bin) was redesigned so that the dust collectors functioned dually as dust collection and raw material recovery, making the system fully redundant. Underneath the dump bin is a huge container for the activated charcoal. Dust from the dust collector drops right back into the bin.
