Selecting a dust collection system involves more than just evaluating the types of materials you handle and the size of the system you need. Understanding those variables can go a long way to managing the cost and scope of the project and the efficiency of the installed system.

Join Plant Engineering on August 25 at 1 p.m. CDT for a look at why early consideration of all factors can reduce your capital spend and optimize operational costs for a dust collection system. 

Among the questions that will be answered are:

  • What factors beyond size should be considered when selecting dust collection equipment?
  • What distinct advantages do different collector types offer?
  • How does system design impact operational cost? 
  • How does equipment selection affect project cost?
