To understand the multi-faceted benefits of an industrial dust collection system, consider the example of a recent installation at a hardboard plant. Hardboard, also known as high-density fiberboard, is a an engineered wood product commonly used to make furniture and construction materials. Hardboard manufacturing involves breaking down wood into fibers and then reassembling the pieces to form hard panels. To break down the fibers, the manufacturer must first soften the wood chips by steaming them and then grind the chips between abrading discs to rip apart the wood fibers. During the grinding process, an industrial dust collection system is needed to reclaim airborne wood particles that can be used for other products. Industrial dust collection also helps control potentially harmful particulate emissions from stacks at the plant. In fact, each of the plant’s six cyclone dust collectors safely handles from 5,000 to 22,500 cfm of dirty gas. View our online industrial dust collection demo to see how this technology works.
