Many of IAC’s customers work with dangerous and hazardous materials. When creating solutions for handling harmful materials, IAC works quickly to help these organizations create safer processes for their employees and production. IAC did this recently by taking a few fast measurements and rapidly creating a custom component to eliminate the spread of a harmful powder in an ingredient facility, which took numbers from three and a half times the exposure limitation to less than 10% of the threshold.

Naturally occurring pozzolans have been used in cement for thousands of years. In modern times, much of these natural materials were replaced with fly ash, which is a byproduct of burning coal for electric power generation. However, with more and more coal plants being shut down, the availability of fly ash is decreasing. This is creating a new demand for the old material, leading to the construction of new mining and processing facilities. With years of experience in mining and processing natural materials, such as frac sand, IAC is prepared to assist with the supply and installation of new natural pozzolan facilities.

In this month’s IAC Tip of the Month Video, Process Engineer Luis Castano offers an elegant and simple solution of how to modernize older reverse air and shaker style baghouses within the housing, and convert them to more reliable and easier to service pulse jet systems. Conversion can be done at a lower cost than replacing the baghouse, and will achieve required capacity, making the investment an excellent option for many operations.
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.
