Dust Collection

Many businesses consult with ETS in search of guidance in creating a better dust collection system. ETS conducted an engineering evaluation on Bandag, INC. Tread Grinding Dust Collection System and to identify and design a system that would improve dust pickup at the buffing stations, and at the same time reduce the potential for fires in the system baghouse.

The result was a plan by ETS outlining specifications to describe the general qualities, performance, and basic systems required in the fabrication and construction of the finishing line modification. For more on the modification and other case studies.

ETS also has an independent fabric-filter laboratory for fabric, dust and new/used bag testing. For more than 25 years ETS has conducted thousands of bag analyses both for baghouse suppliers and users. Our clients have used this service for new baghouse applications, new bag quality assurance programs, and used bag troubleshooting. For clients who needed used bag troubleshooting ETS typically tested high or unstable pressure drop, excessive emissions or unacceptable bag life.

The fabric lab is the only independent facility in North America that is equipped with a test apparatus that complies with internationally recognized test standards (ASTM D6830-02 & VDI/DIN Standard 3926), based on the German method that allows the user to measure baghouse filter media performance under defined conditions with regard to the filtration velocity (G/C), particle size distribution, and cleaning requirements. For more information.

Our skilled staff, which includes some of the nation’s highly regarded bag house consultants, reviews the data. The client receives an assessment with various perspectives offering unique insight as to the cause of failure and potential remedies. A report is prepared for each project, including test data, analytical results, photographs, and recommendations/conclusions.
