on Industrial Ventilation for
Dust Control, Combustible Dust Collection,
and Vapor Control

The Engineers Collaborative provides industrial ventilation services for dust control, dust collection, and vapor control to help protect workers' health and plant facilities using technology incorporating dust control hoods, vapor control hoods, LEV hoods, containment booths, fume hoods, dust explosion protection and filtration.


Combustible Dust Control

The same old dust control and pneumatic conveying system problems that you have been living with could now cost you big dollars in production down-time, penalties, and, worst of all, serious accidents. Take a walk around your plant and see how many of these problems you have if the dust is combustible. Don't wait until you are walking through the plant with an OSHA inspector or an inspector from your State's Department of Environmental Protection. Find out what you should look for and correct now in this article.
