Australian Dust Control Pty Ltd has custom-designed and installed a new high efficiency reverse flow dust extraction system for a Lucerne hay producer and distributor.
Lucerne hay is processed for horse feed to exacting standards by completely extracting dust to eliminate the risk of mould spores and dust mites. To ensure the quality of the hay product, the production includes a sieving as well as dust extraction process.
Australian Dust Control’s custom-designed solution consisted of the ASF6 reverse flow dust extractors incorporating a large 90kw high efficiency fan with a capacity of 46000m³/hr. An acoustic enclosure was also provided for the fan to minimise noise to the neighbouring areas.
A variable speed drive was included in the design to ensure maximum efficiency by pre-setting suction levels, resulting in significant and ongoing energy savings for the customer. The ductwork layout was also designed for maximum efficiency of the production line with ducting installed to all extraction points.
Australian Dust Control is an Australian owned company offering innovative solutions to meet the diverse needs of customers for dust extraction in the horse feed and agriculture industry.
