Industrial Dust Collection System

For a major manufacturer, Borton-Lawson designed and implemented a dust collection system that filters plant air and recirculates it in the HVAC system. This system was designed to actively suppress any potential explosions resulting from paper dust, in addition to reclaiming plant air and reducing energy use.

Challenges V. Solutions

Challenge: Floor space within manufacturing facilities is often at a premium.

Solution: Borton-Lawson used in-house 3D modeling equipment and software and coordinated with equipment manufacturers to develop semi-custom equipment that fit space limitations.

Challenge: Minimize downtime to production equipment.

Solution: 3D modeling allowed the construction team to accurately fabricate all components necessary for the job and install a majority of the equipment without impacting production.
