Dust Collection Design

Dust Collection SystemAt Ingenium Design, we are all about the engineering, and producing excellent drawings. We find the simple solution, to save you time and money. Here is what we can do for your dust collection system.

New Dust Collection Systems

Dust collection systems can be as simple as a single collector serving one piece of equipment, or an elaborate centralized system with many connection points. In any case we can start you off on the right path and guide you all the way to the finish line. Here are some typical dust collection systems we enjoy designing:

  • Conveyor transfer points
  • Equipment pickup points
  • Rail/Truck dump facilities
  • Crushers and vibrating screens
  • Rotary dryers
  • Custom hoods
  • Dry baghouses
  • Wet collectors
  • Venturi scrubbers
  • Custom ductwork and supports
  • Exhaust stacks
  • Dust suppression
  • Dry fog

We can complete your system by also designing:

  • Access platforms
  • Booster pumps
  • Effluent / sump pumps
  • Duct support structures
  • Exhaust stack supports/towers
  • Process and effluent piping

Existing Systems

Is your existing dust collection system “hacked together” and causing you trouble? Do you just need to add a few pick up points? We can evaluate your system top to bottom and design the most cost effective solutions.

Too often dust collection systems have been retrofit for added or removed equipment. This changes the dynamics of the duct system causing air velocities to be too high or too low in some areas. When velocities are too low, material can drop out of the air-stream and eventually buildup and create plugging issues and nuisance cleaning of the ducts.  Re-handling this material drives up operating costs.

When velocities are too high, abrasive materials can wear holes in the ductwork. Excessive velocities also require the fan to use more energy than necessary to transport the captured dust. You may not need a completely new dust collection system. Sometimes replacing some of the duct work with the correct size will do the trick. Let us take a look and see if we can save you money.

Evaluations and Balancing

Did your dust collection system work before and now it is “out-of-whack”? We can help by providing the following services:

  • System Evaluations
  • System Balancing
  • Airflow measurements including static pressure, duct velocity and CFM

With our evaluation we will provide a schematic of your system with the duct velocities in each branch. We will provide recommendations on how you can improve your dust collection system to reduce dust, save energy and reduce labor costs from cleanup.
