Recently IAC completed an extensive baghouse project that included the complete design, engineering, equipment fabrication, removal of existing baghouse and ductwork, installation of the new baghouse and ductwork, and the start-up and commissioning of the equipment at a lead oxide battery manufacturing facility.

Baghouses & Dust Collectors
Baghouse dust collector maintenance is essential in order to protect the health and safety of people in the surrounding environment, and to ensure the process equipment and machinery in an industrial plant runs properly and efficiently. In other words, if your baghouse dust collectors and ventilation systems aren’t operating at peak performance levels, it will be difficult for the equipment in your plant to meet production rates! By regularly cleaning and inspecting the baghouse, potential issues can be identified and addressed before they become more serious.

IAC is excited to co-sponsor the PBS Dust Collection Webinar, "Overlooked Aspects of Combustible Dust Design", being presented on Wednesday, January 25th, 2023. In addition to what you'll learn by attending this PBS presentation, please take a look at IAC's resources on the subject of "Overlooked Aspects of Combustible Dust Design"
IAC’s Vice President of Engineering, Tristan Trupka, recently was a guest on the podcast, “Dust Safety Science”. The show discusses process systems and combustible dust safety with host Dr. Chris Cloney (PEng.), an esteemed expert in the field. Dr. Cloney has presented at academic conferences in over five countries, published over 15 peer-reviewed journals, and now focuses on educating industrial workers on best practices for handling combustible dust safely.
Baghouse dust collectors are critical process equipment for many manufacturers, so when one reaches the end of its serviceable life, replacing it before it goes down can prevent loss of valuable production time.
Can velocity and interstitial velocity are commonly confused when proper filter selection and baghouse sizing are being decided because they are very similar when filter bags extend to the hopper level. Can velocity is the vertical gas velocity throughout the housing, above the hopper level but before reaching the bottom of the bags. Interstitial velocity is the vertical gas velocity once the flow is at the bottom of the filter bags.
