Speaker: Tracy Janssen

Session Description

While grain elevators are responsible for capturing airborne contaminants and mitigating explosive dusts, your dust collector should not have a negative effect on production. In this session, we will consider designs that maximize product yield by collecting dust and pneumatically convey it back to the process, that minimize housekeeping at the grain receiving pits and multiple transfer points so that all processing equipment runs reliably and efficiently, and that will meet your EPA, NFPA, and OSHA safety and health compliance requirements.
