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.
Reliable material handling is vital in process related industries to achieve efficiency optimization, material uniformity, and debottlenecking. These goals can be upset by poor solids flow. Resins, pellets, grains, powders, wood dust, and many other fine materials are all susceptible to poor flow. Flow problems can occur throughout the plant and seem to always be found in Food & Diary Spray Drying, Air Pollution Control Equipment, and Material Handling Process Equipment.
Recently the corporate training manager at a large international building materials company reached out to IAC wanting technical training on baghouses, dust collectors, and other process equipment for their cement products division’s maintenance and operation teams.
