Dry Milling Airflow

Project Summary

Our client wanted an evaluation of airflow at five of their pet care production facilities. The evaluations included equipment audits and airflow analysis on pneumatic lift hammermill systems and plenum hammermill systems. The evaluation we needed to determine if the airflow and distribution were adequate to meet the design requirements of the mills. The supporting equipment capacities were evaluated to assure they were operating at design capabilities. The dust collection systems were evaluated to determine if they were meeting the velocity, flow needed for contaminate control.

The study included:

  • Site assessment, survey and equipment information collection
  • Analysis of the Air systems
  • Analysis of the feeding systems
  • Evaluation and Report of the systems
  • Recommendations of the potential challenges and solutions to bring the systems to design condition
