Crane booms are in the air as the IAC and Adelphi Construction teams continue to make progress on the greenfield construction of the independent Reverse Air Baghouse Systems for two direct-current electric arc furnaces (DC-EAF), and two twin ladle furnaces (LF). IAC’s project managers keep the lines of communication open with our on site personnel, our OEM fabrication facilities and outside equipment suppliers, specialized transportation fleets, and our client to ensure the project continues to run smoothly.

Short filter bag life in a baghouse dust collector system can be a difficult problem to identify. Most of the time, short filter bag/cartridge life is caused by one, or a combination of, (8) possible causes including:
Ever wondered how the Roman empire made such durable buildings? Like the Colosseum or Pantheon? They achieved those long-lasting architectural wonders by harnessing the power of natural Pozzolans!
Installation of the gateway device on new or existing baghouses is fast and straightforward. Once power is applied, the gateway device automatically connects to the strongest cellular signal and begins transmitting data to the cloud for quick & easy access to users around the globe.
Watch IAC’s Tip of the Month Video: Correct Placement of HEPA Filters in a Baghouse Ventilation System
Where is the HEPA filter in your Baghouse industrial ventilation system located? Before or after the fan? In our newest Tip of the Month Video, IAC Process Engineer Luis Castano explains how, as filtered air leaves the baghouse, proper HEPA filter placement is critical to optimal performance of downstream processing systems and prevention of possible contaminated air leaks.
Food manufacturers considering moves to create safer environments, save product, and cut waste can trust IAC to upgrade elements to create a more sanitary and food safe environment. IAC recently helped a confectionary company with updates to a dust collector dating back to the original construction of the plant 20 plus years ago. Over the course of the project, IAC revised ventilation, airflow, safety elements, and saved 800 pounds of product a week.
In our newest Tip of the Month Video, IAC Engineer Luis Castano, explains that just like baghouses, the differential pressure on HEPA filters for toxic dust must be monitored. However, if your baghouse has a leak, by the time the HEPA filter monitor indicates a high differential pressure, the HEPA filter’s performance has already been compromised, potentially causing a very expensive problem. Watch the full video below to find out how to detect a leak and prevent this problem.
IAC was awarded a turnkey EPC contract for the supply and construction of the independent Reverse Air Baghouse Systems for two direct-current electric arc furnaces (DC-EAF) having a capacity of 210 short tons (190 tons) each and two twin ladle furnaces (LF). Melt-shop Ventilation will include Canopy Exhaust above the EAF(s) and building ventilation. Total Air Volume of 3,300,000 acfm. IAC is building the EAF Dust Handling from the RAFFs to the Rail Car Load-out Silo.
IAC’s Blue Crew Field Service Team Completes 16,800 Pleated Filter Bag Change-out Early & Without Downtime
Recently, IAC’s Nationwide Blue Crew Field Service Team was contracted to complete a filter bag change-out at a Power Generation Station in Nebraska. The job consisted of removing and replacing 16,800 pleated filter elements, changing 1 compartment at a time, while the baghouse was on-line and running, within an 8 week timeframe. The IAC Crew successfully completed the job 2 weeks early – right at the 6-week mark.
