Experience with well over a thousand (literally) dust collection systems with slide/blast/bleed-in devices for “air distribution” proves those devices do just the opposite. They virtually guarantee poor system performance and failure to control dust emissions. Plus, they are unnecessary and a waste of money. The webinar will explain why these devices fail and what to do to create a successful system without them. 

Osborn has more than 45 years of 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 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).
