Indusvent were selected to install their Super-Blower system to provide complete dust extraction and filtration system serving the hot coating, sand recovery and casting shake out processes at a leading UK foundry.
With an operating temperature of the sand recovery process at 180°C combined with the operating temperature of the hot coating at 85°C, Indusvent designed the system to introduce ambient air for dilution to reduce the overall system operating temperature to approximately 60°C.
The Super-Blower unit in this case was specified for handling fine metal particulate and sand, the filtered airstream is discharged to atmosphere via a self supporting stack which incorporated continuous monitoring.
