On Tuesday, August 13, 2019 at @ pm Eastern/11 am Pacific, Jack Osborn, senior project engineer, Airdusco Engineering and Design Services LLC, will present "Methods to Assure a Successful Dust Collection System" as part of Powder & Bulk Solids DryPro webinar series.
 
Far too often expensive dust collection systems are ineffective and a constant maintenance problem. Osborn has found through 43+ years of designing, providing, and trouble-shooting dust collection systems that by applying certain essential standards the results will be a long-term reliable and effective system. This webinar course will present and explain these essential standards for a successful dust collection system.   
 
Attend this webinar and learn:
  • Why the vast majority of dust collection systems are ineffective and a major source of maintenance problems.
  • How to use certain basic succesful results when considering these systems ranging in installed cost from $100,000 to many millions of dollars. 
  • Why Ignoring basic requirements will lead to failure and end with combustible dusts, a significant increase in the likelihood of a combustible dust event.
  • What a successful dust collection system is and how basic essentials combined with common sense and proven engineering practices can be applied to new and existing dust collection systems.
Osborn has 44+ years-experience in the concept, design, project management, start-up, and operations/maintenance for an extensive range of mechanical equipment systems, including dust collection, ventilation, bulk-handling mechanical systems (pneumatic and mechanical), storage weighing, mixing, batching, etc. He is also a member of all six NFPA committees on combustible dusts (61, 484, 652, 654, 664, and Correlating).
