Dust Control Improves Air Quality and Bottom Line

Our Tuscaloosa, Alabama, facility recently replaced the multi-cyclone dust control system on its sand dryer as part of a larger effort to maximize the overall efficiency of the dryer circuit. The multi-cyclone was replaced with a high-efficiency wet scrubber that resulted in an estimated overall particulate reduction of 90 tons per year. In addition to dust reduction, the new system runs more efficiently, thereby reducing the facility’s energy costs and overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
