With the installation of Aerodyne's woodworking dust
collection system, this Virginia hardboard plant has achieved reduced fire hazard, extensive re-use of
collected product, and control of particulate emissions from plant
This plant has installed six of these cyclonic dust collectors, handling
from 5,000 to 22,500 cfm of dirty gas each.
Aerodyne industrial dust collectors operate under positive pressure on dirty air loaded with up to six grains
per cubic food of wood dust, permitting re-use of collected dust. The Aerodyne
woodworking dust collection system lends itself well to the wood products industry because of its ease of dust reclamation. Once considered waste material, wood dust is now a valuable product with a wide variety of uses.
These Aerodyne SplitStream Dust Collectors enable this hardboard
products plant to comply with State of Tennessee Air Pollution
Control Regulations in collecting dust off hardboard slitting
saws and flash dryers. 28% or more of the dust measures less
than 20 microns.
