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.

Baghouses & Dust Collectors
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.
IAC is excited to co-sponsor the PBS Dust Collection Webinar, "Hood Design for Effective Dust Control", being presented on Tuesday, January 25th, 2022.
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.
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.
