Our client had a single large metal dressing booth. The dust collector was highly energy inefficient, we wrote a business case and carried out energy saving calculations to prove a less than 5 year ROI. This system was also a single point of failure in a critical process line.
Following Lean excercises with our in-house practitioner the descision was made to manufacture two separate systems. We installed one titanium explosive dust system in a temporary location allowing the operators to continue, whilst removal of the inefficient wet dust collector was carried out.
Continuity of production of these key aerospace parts was key to the projects success.
These two dry explosive dust extraction LEV systems were built, commisioned and in service in 5 days including all electrical works.
The result – A future proofing LEV solution!
Face velocity, duct velocity and system parameters were all above design guidance of HSG 258 and Coshh regulations.
