When IAC’s Vice President of Engineering, Tristan Trupka, was a guest on the 174th episode of the “Dust Safety Science” Podcast, there was some discussion that IAC’s Joe Haney may also be invited to the show. As hoped, Joe joined host Dr. Chris Cloney (PEng.) for the show’s 180th episode. If you missed Tristan’s episode you can read a summary or link to that installment here.

IAC’s winterizing kit protects your pulse jet baghouse’s pulse valves and compressed air headers from snow, ice, and freezing weather - guarding against production interruptions and downtime.
Winter weather conditions can cause pulse valves to freeze open or internal diaphragms to crack; bleeding the compressed air header of the air pressure and air volume required to effectively clean the bags.
IAC’s Smart Plant™ Remote Monitoring System is a highly economical cloud-based IoT system to ensure regulatory compliance and save energy within your facility. With the ability to monitor compressed air, faster detection of leaks, and cleaning on demand, Smart Plant™ Industry 4.0 technology keeps your equipment running optimally while alerting you to equipment failures within minutes.
Through growth of their business, a Midwestern USA handcrafter of custom cabinets and home fixtures needed to upgrade their woodworking dust collection system. After consideration of how their current dust collection system was handling the low moisture, mildly abrasive sawdust particulate, and expectations for future growth, it was determined that the best course of action was to modify their baghouse dust collector with a high-pressure filter receiver.
IAC Systems Engineer Luis Castano is back again with this month's Tip of the Month Video about the importance of keeping your baghouse or dust collector system's discharge hopper free of grain load (fallen materials). Proper airflow is very important to keeping your baghouse or dust collector system operating efficiently. When fallen material builds up in the hopper, air velocity is effected, and the performance of the baghouse is reduced. Using the appropriate discharge device, and placing it on a timer, will keep the hopper empty, allowing your baghouse running reliably.
The dust collection industry does not experience technological advancements with great regularity. The techniques and equipment have remained much the same as they were years or even decades ago. However, technology does not slow down for us personally or in many areas of manufacturing. We are often left with no choice but to adapt or become left behind.
Do you hear a hissing sound coming from your baghouse’s housing, a discharge point, or expansion joint? That’s the sound of lost production, and lost profits. IAC Process Engineer Luis Castano has inspected hundreds of baghouse dust collection and vent systems; lost production capacity due to In-Leakage is the problem he finds most often. In-Leakage reduces the baghouse system’s ability to process airflow at rated CFM capacity, which in turn causes the process equipment’s production to drop. High temperature air magnifies this effect, slowing production system down even more.
MISSION, KS- February 18th, 2021- Industrial Accessories Company (IAC), one of the best-known companies for Turnkey plant design and construction within the Frac Sand industry (with more than 45 previous Frac Sand plant projects), announces the opening of a new service center in Monahans to support customer needs in the frac sand industry. IAC’s new location is: 223 W Sealy Ave. Monahans, TX 79756. For service, call 800-334-7431.
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.
