Aerodyne's Cyclonic Dust Collector Relieves Coal Mine's Pressure Problems

Posted by Tom Hobson on Jul 25, 2013 4:29:39 AM

A coal mine in Colorado was experiencing pressurization problems in its conveying line. The facility blows air through the mine shaft with the conveying line that takes the coal out of the mine. The air pressure in the shaft was too high and the mine operators were searching for a way to vent the excess air out. Not only was the air pressure too high, it was also knocking coal dust off of the conveyor, which leads to time spent cleaning it up or fines the company must pay. Irritated with time and money being lost over the air pressure issue, the company reached out to Aerodyne for assistance. After further inquires about the process and limited space available for large equipment, Aerodyne suggested the mine operators use the GPC dust collector. Due to the unique design of this ground plate cyclonic dust collector, it can be installed horizontally and still maintain maximum efficiency.
