Vacuum Transfer Systems for Silica Sand Waste Dust & Fines Removal

In Blog by IAC

IAC’s newest innovation provides a labor saving and environmentally safe solution to capture, convey and remove waste dust and fines from collection points within your plant. Our Vacuum Transfer Systems pneumatically convey the waste dust and transfer them to a dedicated waste silo or other accumulation point with an automated truck loadout system for removal from the plant. These systems are designed to convey the waste material with 100% safety factor in design to rapidly deal with surges and unwanted slugs of material.

Key Features of IAC’s Vacuum Transfer Systems Include:
• Elimination of Fine Airborne Silica Dust
• Integral for Respirable Crystalline Silica Mitigation
• Supports Worker Friendly Plant Hygiene
• IAC’s ability to Design, Fabricate s & Install the Vacuum Transfer System to Easily Retrofit Existing Plants
• Can Be Used as a Plant Dust Spill Central Vacuum Clean-up System

Automated Control System
Built in pressure sensors and automated controls allow remote monitoring the Vacuum Transfer System. The system can be programmed for continuous cycling of each waste dust pick up point or time delayed for non-continuous cycling.
Protect Workers from Overexposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica
OSHA Standards require employers to use dust control systems to prevent employees from overexposure to respirable crystalline silica above the permissible exposure limit of 50 ug/m averaged over an 8 hour day. IAC’s team of highly skilled pneumatic conveying system engineers and construction teams have designed and installed numerous retrofit Vacuum Transfer Systems for a variety of industries including frac sand, cement and steel.
