WHESCO Group, Inc. was hired to custom engineer this upgraded dust collection system for use within a foundry. The process included complete design and engineering of the system according to our client's specifications. We also provided programming of the control system, performed start-up operations and training. We supplied them with full documentation, detailing operation and maintenance.

There were many special features included that were designed to meet the client's specifications: an improved dust collection baghouse, a rotary airlock feeder, a centrifugal fan, an airguard side access safety filter housing, and two access doors. Within these doors was a remote panel with a photohelic gage with an alarm for excessive filter pressure drop.

In addition to an improved overall design and functionality, our product provided a natural gas savings for our client.  The system will provide a $30,000 per year savings payback within five years. They are extremely pleased with all aspects of the project, including the cost effectiveness of it.
