Engineering Case Studies
Our designers and engineers took up the challenge of creating a transportable vacuum that could clean the shells in the pot line, eliminate workplace environment hazards, and enable recaptured dusts to be recycled. It needed to be big, powerful, and able to literally suck a football through a hose.
Filtercorp completed a dust extraction system for a 4 ton electric arc furnace for a foundry. The aim was to increase the furnace production output and ensure emissions are kept in the acceptable range according to the resource consent requirements.
Filtercorp designed, supplied and installed air intakes consisting of stainless steel aquavane louvres, a pre-filter and final filter to clean air as it entered an oxygen producing plant.
Good food demands good filtration. Filtercorp supplied a new dust collector for a major food manufacturing plant, complete with explosion venting to keep the emissions level down.
Filtercorp designed a new dust collector for a major asphalt producing company in New Zealand with a result of emissions being well below the air discharge requirement margin.
Filtercorp designed and supplied a dust collector as a solution for a major player in the New Zealand plant seed breeding business, to control dust and materials which may be hazardous if inhaled.
