A North Carolina based, family-owned manufacturer supplying parts and components to the military and automotive industries has trusted Air Purification Inc. for its blasting dust control needs with great results. The customer was dealing with challenging applications for media blast and soda blasting metal parts at their facility. Safety and regulatory compliance were all top priorities due to the type and volume of dust generated. Product quality was also a concern of the customer, to meet stringent end-user requirements.
Air Purification Inc. provided a no-cost, no-obligation site survey to determine the proper solution including turn-key service by API factory-trained staff. With safety and compliance as the foremost goals, API specified two Filter 1 Pulsatron 10,000 CFM high-efficiency cartridge collectors, complete with explosion vents. Each collector was located outside the plant and ducted to the designated blast booth operations using heavy-duty snap-together Nordfab ducting, sized specifically for these applications. API utilized Filter 1 as well as our own Air Filters Division to determine the most effective fire-retardant filter media for the applications. Analysis of MSDS along with dust samples were instrumental to our recommendation process. API provided all the mechanical portions of this installation with the electrical scope being subcontracted.
The applications were completed within a designated time frame over holiday shutdown period. The successful implementation of API’s Filter 1 systems has allowed the customer to grow this segment of their business while maintaining OSHA compliance. The designated areas are now much cleaner and safer. The outdoor installation of these systems has allowed the customer to optimize its plant layout, under increasing space limitations. API was chosen as the supplier for our range of products, performance guarantee and ability to provide a turnkey installation. The customer has been extremely happy with the specified products as well as the ongoing level of expertise and customer service provided by Air Purification Inc.
