Our client Hovis needed to improve the extraction of dust generated through the tipping process of wheat into the site hopper.
Key to this project was managing the risk of explosion typically found in dust-heavy environments. We therefore designed the system to reduce this risk as well as improving overall conditions.
We designed and fabricated a hood to capture the dust, alongside a duct system with accompanying filter unit that incorporated a self-cleaning system. The full system was then installed on site.
The system is now fully operational on site and the client is satisfied with its performance.
