IAC is excited to co-sponsor the PBS Dust Collection Webinar, "Hood Design for Effective Dust Control", being presented on Tuesday, January 25th, 2022.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released their Top 10 Most Cited Violations for 2021. Coming in at number ten on the list is a repeat offender – Machine Guarding. The same violation is also a common recurrence on the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Top 20 Violations each year. This easily rectified violation accounts for approximately 2,000 citations a year. IAC can help your facility avoid this issue quickly and easily to save you money and keep your employees safe.
From the smallest elbow to the largest bin vent, knowing each part and piece of equipment is created for your particular pneumatic conveying process will help you save money, plan for maintenance, limit employee exposure, save energy, and increase your production rate. Over time, repeat fixes can become costly. Thus, it is important to ensure your system is outfitted specifically for your application and material.
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.
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.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
IAC’s Smart Plant Remote Monitoring System is a Turnkey, Cloud Based Industrial IoT System that allows personnel to remotely monitor equipment operation around the world.
In January of 2017, OSHA revised the industry regulations pertaining to fixed ladders and fall protection. Previously, OSHA standard 1910.27 covered fixed ladders, and it required cages on fixed ladders where the climb is over 20 feet (6.10 m) high. With the 2017 revision, fixed ladders were moved under OSHA’s standard 1910.28, which amends the rule on height so that fixed ladders will only be required to have fall protection if their height is greater than 24 feet (7.3 m) above a lower level.
