Case Study Project - Baghouse Conversion for Wood Cabinet Shop
Woodworking Production Facility for Custom Cabinets and Fixtures - Midwest USA
After careful consideration of the customer's dust collection needs and budget, a baghouse to filter receiver conversion was performed during a winter holiday shut down.
Through growth of their business, a Midwestern USA handcrafter of fine custom cabinets and home fixtures needed to upgrade their woodworking dust collection system. After careful consideration of how their current dust collection system was handling the low moisture, mildly abrasive sawdust particulate, and what expectations they had for future growth, it was determined that the best course of action was to modify their baghouse dust collector with a high-pressure filter receiver.
In a process described as “pickin n’ puttin” by the foreman of the specialty welders brought in to assist IAC’s Blue Crew with the system modification, the existing ductwork and cyclone were removed and set aside for reuse, while the old dust collector, platform, safety ladder, and some structural steel pieces were removed and set aside for disposal.
IAC’s Blue Crew then installed the new top load baghouse filter receiver with hopper, rated at 4,000 AFCM @ 70 F, with a quantity of 80, 6.25” diameter x 96.50” long 16 oz singed polyester needled felt filter bags over 11-gauge, 12 wire, galvanized steel cages. The Blue Crew also installed, or reinstalled, steel bracing beams on the existing support structure, a new clean air plenum, caged access ladder, full perimeter handrail assembly around the top roof deck of the baghouse, and the existing cyclone and ductwork.
The entire project was completed in six (6) days from start to finish.
IAC also installed beneficial optional upgrades chosen by the customer to ensure efficient maintenance of their new equipment. These upgrades included:
- Automatic DP sensor port clean-out system, which provides a periodic air backflush to ensure accurate sensing of pressure at the DP switch instrument.
- Winterizing Kit for pulse valves, which consists of a carbon steel insulated enclosure with 120V thermostat, controlled to maintain above 32 F at air header and pulse valves
- Slip resistant coating on top access doors of baghouse filter receiver.
- IAC’s Smart Plant Remote Monitoring System gateway sensor box, which allows for real time access to baghouse performance via an encrypted, cloud based, industrial IoT system that plant maintenance personnel can log into via any internet enabled device such as a desktop computer, tablet, or cell phone, for access easy to read dashboards for predictive and preventative maintenance.
IAC strives to provide each customer with custom tailored solutions for their dust collection needs. Our OEM dust collection systems are warrantied to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of three (3) years from date of shipment. With the best engineered baghouse designs, nationwide field service crews, and ability to self-perform modifications and new installations, let IAC be your trusted source for dust collection systems.
We selected IAC based on their design build and construction schedule, combined with their patented rotary Frac Sand dryer design. IAC’s dryer allows us to operate at levels of moisture and tonnage rates that aren’t feasible within a fluid bed dryer. In addition, IAC has stuck with the Plants through the process over the last 4 months to support Preferred Sands in numerous ways beyond the construction."
