  • Plant-related Combustible Dust Dangers - One Point Lesson

    What are the specific plant-related dangers of combustible dust? Facilities that process combustible dust may be unaware that combustible dust is accumulating in and around the ceiling and overhead horizontal surfaces and structures, behind walls and other enclosed areas. The potential for a catastrophic event increases over time for reasons such as combustible material contamination. Facilities that process multiple types of combustible dust have greater potential for deflagration or rapid expansion of gases that develop into an explosion due to the combined chemistry between various compounds and types of combustible dust. Facilities that manage combustibles in proximity to other processes where heat, moisture, chemicals, and incompatible reactive materials may be at greater risk for a catastrophic event. Depending on the dust explosivity category, the plant may be severely damaged or destroyed by the explosive force of the fuel whether from low or high Kst values. For example, fiberglass gel coat dust has a higher explosivity than wood dust or grain dust. Kst is the rate or velocity of burn for the material. Black powder burns at a rate of 500 to 200 feet per second. Kst is established while evaluating the explosivity of the dust under laboratory conditions

  • Are you able to centralize a vacuum indoors?

    One Point Lessons All Industrial-Duty vacuum cleaning systems properly designed and manufactured can be centralized either indoors or outdoors if the manufacturer has taken this aspect into account during the engineering process. HEPA–certified, high-efficiency particulate arrestance filters are an absolute must when using vacuum cleaners indoors. HEPA filters must be matched to the maximum flow of the vacuum exhauster. In addition to combustible dust, employees are sometimes exposed to hazardous dust or HAPS referred to as hazardous air pollutants the industrialized vacuum cleaner can handle. Additionally, most factories emit dust and debris from specific manufacturing operations that can infiltrate other critical processes. The vacuum system (low volume high pressure) can be fitted to these operations to capture quality killing particulates from affecting in-process or finished goods. Vacuum as a utility. Vacuum cleaning systems equipped with this capability can be adapted to “lift” material over 100 feet vertically thus performing double or triple duty as a bulk lifting or material transfer tool for large amounts of material accumulations on horizontal surfaces or large piles of steel shot or even powdered tungsten weighing 1200 lbs./cu ft.

  • Air Dynamics Q&A: 3 Questions many companies should ask to succeed with a central vacuum unit:

    One Point Lesson: 3 Questions many companies should ask to succeed with a central vacuum unit: Q. How do I know if I need PTFE filters or polyester filters? A. Filters are selected based on the type of material collected. PTFE is a plastic coating bonded to the base polyester media to enhance filter performance. Polyester felt or spun-bond media is the typical go-to for most applications. Q. What type of metal tubing should be used for stick material? A. Vacuum systems are usually deployed using galvanized coated tubing. Other materials such as aluminum and 304 stainless steel are selected based on the application's environmental or sanitary requirements. Q. How much maintenance does an Air Dynamics Central Vacuum need? A. Typically 8 to 25 hours a year. The maintenance primarily includes filter changes and general performance upkeep.
