Custom Baghouse Dust Collectors
Your Unique Challenges, Accepted
Your dust collection need is like no other. The combination of your facility’s shape, size, production process and particulate capture needs make you unique. That’s why your baghouse dust collector should be more than an off-the-shelf design. While our team uses knowledge gained from past projects, we also see your dust collection challenges as yours alone, delivering a collector or an entire system that fits your facility’s individual industrial ventilation needs.No matter if your manufacturing process produces a fine dust, a wet and heavy dust, or a fume, you can rest easy knowing that your new baghouse can get the job done efficiently.
Baghouses Engineered with You in Mind
Baghouse dust collector design can be complex—you may be challenged by a particularly light or heavy dust or you may need to fit a large system into an already cramped facility. That’s why we bring a diverse team to ensure we have considered every aspect of engineering and design that will go into your project.
If your facility lacks space, our structural engineers will determine the feasibility of locating a dust collector on a raised platform or even a roof. If you need hood design and layout, our mechanical designers and engineers have the expertise to help you determine the correct placement. And if you need more than a baghouse dust collector, our team excels in total dust collection system design.
Keeping You in Compliance
Vortex Pneumatics Ltd. design and engineering team will work with you to ensure your baghouse meets or exceeds local, provincial and federal standards and regulations, including:
● Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 Section 18 Hazardous Locations (BC Electrical Code)● International Electrotechnical Commission IEC 60079-10-2 Classification of Areas – Combustible Dust Atmospheres● National Fire Code of Canada (BC Fire Code) Part 5 Hazardous Processes and Operations● National Fire Prevention Association NFPA 499 – Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazards (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations● National Fire Prevention Association NFPA 664 – Standard for the Prevention of Fires and Explosions in Wood Processing and Woodworking Facilities● Occupational Safety & Health Administration OSHA 3371-08 Hazard Communication Guidance for Combustible Dusts
Safety, Compliance Met with Fume Collectors, RTOs and More
If your manufacturing process emits noxious fumes, you understand the risks to your employees and the environment. A contaminant that is tacky or moist will likely plug traditional baghouse filters. Look to Vortex. to provide fume collectors, RTOs and other devices to ensure your team’s safety and stay in compliance of air quality standards.
Cartridge Collectors Banish Fine Dust, Fumes
If your manufacturing process produces a fine, dry particulate or fume, a cartridge dust collector may be the best option for improving air quality. And, if you need to fit a dust collector in a small space, cartridge collectors are compact, helping you maintain air quality standards—even in tight quarters. At Vortex, Inc., we can help you choose the best dust collector, based on your process and facility. Because our team is experienced in designing, fabricating and installing collectors and entire systems, you can source from one supplier, saving you time and resources in the long run.
The Best Fit for Cartridge Collectors
Cartridge dust collectors are suitable for dry, fine dust and fumes because they have a large filter area in proportion to their size. And because the filters have deep pleats that allow for greater air flow, the collectors can be installed in small spaces and still efficiently remove dust and fumes. Another plus? The collector’s compact size means you won’t need to climb inside to change filters—this maintenance task can be completed while standing outside the collector.
So, if you have a small space or are looking to isolate the waste stream for individual products, cartridge collectors are ideal.
