Dust Collection is used in agricultural applications to protect against dusts from many sources including: grain, feed, seeds, barn dust, and others.
Dust Collector Cartridge Filters
The agriculture industry is vital for food and clothing production. For such an important industry, safety measures must be in place to protect workers and agricultural facilities. Dust that comes from grain, pollen, seeds and others needs to be controlled to meet OHSA regulations.
We manufacture a complete line of Cellulose, Polyester, Synthetic, Coated and Non-Woven Cartridges to fit most cartridge collectors in the marketplace today.Download Brochure

Reduce Risks of Combustible Dust
Keeping Machinery Clean
One of the main concerns in terms of safety is combustible dust. Dust generated from sources such as grain is extremely combustible and dangerous. When grain dust is ignited, this can lead to a potentially dangerous situation. The majority of combusitble dust explosions occur due to grain dust. To control these hazardous dusts and potentially life-threatening situations, OHSA requires that dust be controlled as a means of prevention. Like a chain reaction, once this dust is ingited, one tiny dust explosion can turn into several. Ignition sources can include sparks from machinery/equipment, etc.
• Sources of combustible dust include dust from: grain, sugar, flour, starch, spices, corn meal, and many others. Dust control should be implemented to minimize the amount of the dust in the facility.
There are numerous health risks associated with work in the agricultural industry. From small farmers to industrial workers, they are exposed to numerous dust particles from mold, pollen, barn dust, pesticides, and others. Long-term exposure to certain dust can lead to many different health effects down the road. Some health issues include:
• Eye and Nose Irritation
• Respiratory Illneses such as bronchitius and pneumonia.
• Grain Fever - Dieasee developed from long term exposure to dust from grain. Symptoms include flu-like symptoms.
• Farmer's Lung - A disease that develops from inhaling dust and mold from certain crops or hay.
