Find out what our IDA has to offer your metalworking business.shutterstock_4900324

If you are in the metalworking or manufacturing industries, safety is, by necessity, one of your highest priorities. From the good keeping and proper use of equipment to consistent use of personal safety gear, there are countless things you monitor each day to keep your employees and your workspace safe.  But are you doing enough?  Or are you at risk for potential combustion due to your dust and fume collection system?

Without IDA (In-line Deflagration Arrester) filters, you and your employees may be at risk. Discover how this proprietary technology from Imperial Systems could prevent disaster in your workshop while reducing your costs and improving your efficiency.


The Danger of Combustion

imageIt’s no secret that dust explosions are a common risk in metalworking and manufacturing industries.  Processes including welding, grinding, polishing, and more can create the perfect combination of dust and sparks in the air that can lead to serious consequences.  For example, three workers were killed in 2010 in a titanium dust explosion in West Virginia.  This incident is in addition to the 281 combustible dust incidents identified by the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board between 1980 and 2005.  In those incidents, 119 workers were killed, 718 injured, and many industrial facilities sustained extensive damage.

Recognizing these dangers, OSHA and the NFPA have created standards aimed at minimizing the risks to life and property that are posed by combustible dust.  Important steps to reduce the danger of combustion include:

  • Analyzing the hazards present in your facilities
  • Utilizing an effective dust collection system
  • Monitoring this system and others to ensure proper operation
  • Limiting smoking, open flames, and sparks in work areas
  • Installing spark arresters in dust collection ductwork

More important combustion prevention guidelines and recommendations can be found with the NFPA or OSHA.

The mistake made by many metalworking and manufacturing businesses is to some, but not all, of the recommended safety steps.  A dust collection system without an IDA present can still combust, creating a deadly flame front.   


Imperial Systems’ IDA Filter Technology

shutterstock_269021891At Imperial Systems, we are proud to announce our proprietary IDA DeltaMAXX filters, which bring advanced safety features to our CMAXX Dust Collection System.  Together, they offer excellent protection against combustion.  

In a recent study of the CMAXX Dust Collector with IDA DeltaMAXX filters, backed by third party testing, we found that in all tests the filters were able to isolate a deflagration and stop a flame front.  The results showed no trace of flame or spark transmission downstream from the filters or in the clean air plenum.  

In fact, the body of the CMAXX Dust Collection System, without explosion venting, was also tested to withstand a deflagration of corn starch at 185 KST with pressures exceeding 4 PSI. In this case, the full explosion diverted through the IDA DeltaMAXX filters.  Afterwards, the filters showed no sign of deformation; their internal cages maintained their shape perfectly, and the seals were not deformed or melted either.  

Note: Although the test described above was performed without explosion vents, as a demonstration of the worst-case scenario, dust collectors should always be properly vented.“discharged into a safe, unrestricted, outdoor location, and the discharge shall not be obstructed” (See NFPA 69 Chapter 12). Where the CMAXX is vented through a pipe or duct, the duct must be designed to withstand the pressure of an explosion. These pressures can be provided at the time of engineering.  Imperial Systems can have your dust tested prior to final engineering to determine the proper venting calculations.  


Comprehensive Combustion Safety

In addition to their high performance in the above testing, the CMAXX Dust Collector with IDA DeltaMAXX cartridge filters also offers several advantages over similar systems that have been tested.  These include:dang

  • Elimination of the need for expensive after-filters that can prematurely blind, causing issues like high pressure drops, increased filter expenses, additional labor, decreased headroom for indoor applications, and enlarged filter housing.
  • Online filter cleaning using the same primary system that the CMAXX uses, ensuring consistent cleaning of the filters during operation
  • Compatibility with inline HEPA filters or a remote HEPA filter system as required, unlike other systems which require such filters to be mounted on top of the collector, limiting its flexibility.

The combined features of the CMAXX and IDA DeltaMAXX filters offer metalworkers and manufacturers the quality, safety, and value that we are dedicated to providing here at Imperial Systems.  

Of course, it’s no surprise that together our products demonstrate some of the highest performance on the market, especially when you consider the impressive advantages each has to offer on its own.  For over a decade, Imperial Systems has offered manufacturers and metalworkers like you advanced, reliable dust and fume collection equipment.

Understanding Flame Arrestor Systems and their Industrial Applications

Imperial Systems is a leader in the industry for safe, effective dust collector systems. 

There are many types of flame arrestor devices and systems available that meet NFPA standards for explosion protection in industrial dust collection systems.  As a leader in the industry and provider of our proprietary DeltaMAXX IDA (In-line Deflagration Arrester) filters, Imperial Systems presents this comparison of the most common types of flame arrestors and their applications.
flame arrestor is a device which allows gas to pass through it, yet stops a flame in order to prevent a larger fire or explosion. Regardless of types, all flame arrestors operate on the same principle: removing heat from the flame as it attempts to travel through narrow passages constructed of metal or other heat-conductive materials. A flame arrestor can be employed in many industries, including metalworking, pulp and paper, oil exploration and production, sewage treatment, mining, power generation, and bulk liquids transportation, among others.

Most flame arrestor designs fall into one of two categories:

End-of-Line (Vent to Atmosphere) Flame Arrestors

End-of-line flame arrestors are used in applications such as petroleum storage tank vents. The classic application is in preventing fire in the atmosphere from entering an enclosure. For example, flame arrestors have been commonly installed on oilfield storage tank vents for nearly a hundred years in order to keep them from exploding in the event that gas flowing from the vents may be struck by lightning.

In-Line Flame Arrestors (Deflagration or Detonation Arrestors)

In-line flame arrestors are installed in pipes to prevent flames from passing through them.  Most in-line flame arrestor applications protect systems which collect and/or filter gases emitted by liquids and solids. If an ignition occurs, a flame inside or outside of the system could result, with the potential to do catastrophic damage.

The various dynamic states of confined flames can be very dangerous for a process system due to the tremendous energies associated with detonation pressure and flame velocity. Your flame arrestor must be able to stop the flame and withstand the enormous pressures caused by explosions within the confined piping.  It must also be able to absorb the flame’s heat much faster than is required by standard low-to-medium-pressure conditions, as well as being structurally superior to standard low-pressure deflagration arrestors.

In order to safeguard workers in the metalworking industry, Imperial Systems tested our CMAXX Dust Collection System numerous times with the DeltaMAXX IDA filters.  In all tests across the board, each filter was able to isolate the flammable dust and completely stop a flame front consistently every time.

7 Safety Features of a Top Dust Collector System

7 important safety improvements your dust collection system can make in your facility

The number one purpose of installing a dust collector in a metalworking or other industrial facility is to create and maintain a safe working environment.  Protecting the health and safety of your employees in turn results in improved performance, productivity, and compliance with safety standards and regulations.  To ensure that your investment is a top dust collector system, Imperial Systems recommends you look for the following important safety features:

Fire Prevention

Without the proper technological tools in place, dangerous amounts of particulates can accumulate in a dust collector, dramatically increasing likelihood of fires.  Invest in a system that includes flame-retardant filter media, spark arrestors, perforated screens, and sprinklers to boost fire prevention in your facility. In addition, cartridges that mount vertically help reduce fire and explosion risks due to their absence of dust build-up on top of the filters.

High Pressure Rating

top dust collector systemMany industrial applications now require dust collectors to have explosion venting (or suppression) systems. A top dust collector system with a higher pressure rating will stand up better in the event of a combustible dust explosion. It may also enable you to save money by investing in a simpler and less costly explosion protection system for NFPA standard compliance.

Long-life Filters

Besides the obvious economical advantage, long-life filters also provide significant contributions to industrial facility safety.  Reducing the frequency of cartridge replacements means minimized exposure to dust for workers, optimized maintenance and disposal costs, and reduced landfill impact.

Filter Replacement Safety

When filters do have to be changed, the safest systems do not require workers ever to enter the actual dust collector to perform the process.  Instead, the filters are positioned for convenient access with easy-slide housing.  Avoid systems that involve pulling out dirty overhead cartridges, as they can result in injuries to the neck, back and foot.  

Timer Board

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) tend to be popular for controlling the pulse-cleaning process for filters, however, the PLC valve opens too slowly to ensure consistent and safe cleaning.  A timer board designed specifically for filter pulsing is the much safer and more reliable method for maintaining a top dust collector system. The timer board can be linked into your PLC or utilized independently.

Safety Monitoring Filter

A safety monitoring filter is a secondary bank of high efficiency air filters installed downstream of the collector’s clean air discharge.  These prevent collected dust from re-entering the workspace in the event of a leak in the dust collector’s primary filtering system, thereby providing double protection for your facility’s air quality.

Additional Safety Accessories & Details

There are a number of accessories available to complement any top dust collector system and further enhance your workplace safety:

  • Quality and/or custom ductwork equipped with dampers and valves help minimize the risk of explosion.
  • OSHA-compliant safety platforms with railings and caged ladders can prevent slips and falls during access to the collector for service.
  • Lock-out/tag-out doors prevent injury and exposure to hazardous dust during a pulsing cycle.
  • A bag-in/bag-out (BIBO) containment system may be required to isolate workers from toxic dust in used filters during change-out.

You dust collection system only deserves the top dust collection system. For more information, contact Imperial Systems today at 800.918.3013.

Stop Explosive Dust in Its Tracks With our Proprietary IDA DeltaMAXX Filters

Save the lives of your employees in the metalworking industry!

As a metal fabricator you’re no stranger to the everyday dangers of the metalworking industry. Metalworkers encounter hazardous smoke, fumes, sparks, and dust. The inhalation of smoke and fumes can cause short term health effects such as respiratory issues to eye irritations, and long term health effects such as chronic lung infections. The most common hazard in the metalworking industry is a combination of dust and sparks which creates explosive dust.  

How Does Explosive Dust Create An Explosion?

The accumulation of combustible dust occurs during processes such as grinding, buffing, and sand casting. During these processes the dust can accumulate in the air ducts and vents making it a recipe for disaster. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) explains the 5 components that create the prime environment for an explosion.

A dust explosion requires 5 components to create the “Dust Pentagon”.

  • A fuel that will burn
  • Oxygen
  • A source of ignition – sparks or heat
  • The suspension of the dust particles in just the right amount
  • Confinement of the dust particles in a limited amount of space.

This provides the perfect formula for the pressure to build up and cause an explosion.

How does the metalworking industry keep explosive dust to a minimum?  Implementing a cleaning protocol, and training employees to identify a hazardous situation is the first line of defense. Abiding by the guidelines put into practice by OSHA, and having a highly efficient ventilation, and dust collection system will keep the combustible dust to a minimum.

Imperial Systems continues to dedicate itself to ensure the safety of those in the metalworking industry. This is why when our proprietary IDA (In-line Deflagration Arrester) DeltaMAXX filters were designed to fit our CMAXX Dust Collector System.  It’s been PROVEN to confine a deflagration and stop a flame front.  In order to safeguard those in the metalworking industry we tested our CMAXX System numerous times with the IDA DeltaMAXX filters and all tests with each filter was able to isolate the flammable dust and completely stop a flame front each and every time.  Not only was it capable of stopping the deflagration, but there were zero traces of flames or sparks in the clean air plenum or down from the the IDA filters. This proves that the CMAXX Dust Collector System is one of the best in the industry.  

We wanted to do a comprehensive test on the effectiveness of the IDA DeltaMAXX filters so we covered the explosion venting on the CMAXX to see how it could withstand the full force of an explosion. The results show how the explosion changed course through the IDA DeltaMAXX filters, and caused very little damage to the filters.  

The IDA filters internal cages remained intact with no visible signs of deformation or melting.  All explosion testing was conducted by a third party. The CMAXX Dust Collector System along with IDA DeltaMAXX filters is now IDA certified, with the end result being safety for those working in the metalworking and manufacturing industries.

The Domed Roof Design: The Solution to Your Worst Dust Collection Problems

Did you know that 30,000 US manufacturing facilities are considered at-risk for explosion by OSHA?

The Structure of a Dome: What’s to Like?

Side-View-Doors-Open-CUTOUTA domed roof design has been called “the king of all roofs”, and they support that name by covering many of the world’s most important and famous buildings. What is a dome? Domes have a curved structure, without corners, angles, or supporting columns. The design options for domes are many. You may see a dome on private homes, commercial buildings, or governmental and religious edifices.

Lightweight yet self-supporting, the dome provides a focal point and a natural attraction. In buildings, the airy dome structure creates an atmosphere evocative of pre-historic civilizations. Indeed, the dome’s deeply rooted origins in many cultures of the ancient world brings an air of richness and sophistication.

Design, quality and function combine to make this architectural structure a winner no matter where or what you’re building. And these observations hold true not just for buildings, but also for technology. What we refer to is industrial manufacturing. In many industries, the domed roof design has been shown to provide many benefits in the building. At Imperial Systems, we wanted to take the ingenuity of the domed system just one step further. For a quintessential dust collection system, we offer dust cartridge collectors with a superior domed roof design, providing industrial manufacturers with the many benefits of a long-lasting and safe instrument.


CMAXX Offer a Superior Domed Roof Design

CMAXX offers a superior domed roof design for cartridge dust collectors, providing a solid roof to increase efficiency. The roof on the CMAXX has a domed structure to make water run off and to improve the strength of the unit. These changes mean that the CMAXX is the only dust collector equipment that does not require external bolt holes. What does it include?

CMAXX domed roof design  = NO bolt holds; NO individual panels; and NO roof seams!


How CMAXX Stays Ahead of the Competition

Front-View-Straight-On-with-badgesIndustrial manufacturing requires instruments that can endure tough conditions, lasting for years and producing a high-quality material, all the while maintaining safety for those who use these instruments. That’s a tall order. At Imperial Systems we are interested in producing the best technologies, using scientific innovations as well as lessons from the past to create an equipment that will hold up to the pressures of your work. Safety equipment, such as cartridge dust collectors, must especially be designed to endure harsh environments.

Compared to the competition, the CMAXX domed structure excels in every way. If you research a similar unit without the domed roof design, you’ll discover a 16-cartridge dust collector with about 160 bolt holes and 1000 holes spaced throughout the collector. This design represents the old style of industrial fabrication, and the bolted panels hold water, leading to leaks and rusting and freezing. All these conditions signify damaged equipment for you.

But check out our the alternative!


Domed Roof Dust Collector Technology: A Challenge to the Status Quo

We know already that weather can be the most unpredictable and difficult element to control when it comes to producing safely and efficiently. At Imperial Systems, we’re not content to until we can provide you with the best for your manufacturing needs. The harsh external elements have resulted in warping, rust, leaks, and other problems for many metalworking and other industrial manufacturers. But your livelihood and the success of your business depends upon decreasing the instances of these types of problems. And the best way to eliminate the flaws in your production is to go back to its source: equipment.

The defects produced by your equipment can compromise the integrity of your unit. This undermines the safe environment you are seeking to create! Thus, we suggest that you confront these problems using a new and reformed dust collection system technology. We use four features to guarantee your protection against leaking and water damage.

  1.     Positive Bow. The shape allows debris to run off more easily with water so that the unit becomes easier to clean. This inhibits pooled-up water from freezing on top of the unit, causing damage.
  2.     One-piece Roof. Eliminating the individual-panel design, the one-piece roof offers a design that will be strong against leaking and warping.
  3.     Zero Bolt Holes. The system is sealed because we have eliminated the external bolt holes altogether. Now, you can rest assured that you will not have to deal with rusty bolts, leaks, and breaking parts.
  4.     A Strong Frame. The 3/16” roof is thick, fully welded, and the welds have been ground smooth. And, 1/4’” plate internal stiffeners offer the additional benefit of a reinforced structure.

What are the Biggest Threats to Dust Efficiency?

We believe that our domed dust collector structure presents a solution to the biggest challenges in the manufacturing business. The above-described features account for the major problems that will confront every industrial manufacturer: combustion, exposure, and pollution.

  1. Combustion.  Fire explosion is a primary hazard that can only be avoided by preventing the build-up of dust particles. Employees should also be aware of the locations of the nearest fire extinguishers and the exit protocol in case of an emergency. While new OSHA guidelines have decreased the number of fires occurring in industrial plants in the U.S. it is estimated that there are still 30,000 facilities at risk for dust combustion.
  2. Exposure. According to the Vision Council, 61% of reported eye injuries occur in trade, manufacturing, and construction jobs. The eyes are exposed to chemical fumes, metal, dust, concrete, and other particles that can be injurious to the worker. Besides affecting the eyes, chemical exposure is also dangerous to the nervous, reproductive, and urinary systems. For these reasons, employees should always wear their personal protective equipment such as eye goggles and dust masks. A well-built dust collector decreases these risks by decreasing the amount of material that can exit the system.
  3. Pollution. When there is a high concentration of dust, smokes, and particles in the air, this affects the ability to breath. Inhalation of such particles can cause damage to the major organs and cause other health problems. Dust in particular can cause breathing problems, injuring the lungs and aggravating any health conditions the worker may already have. The presence of dust in the air is also a predictor of accidents, as the worker is less able to see in these environments.


Invest in Quality.

The domed roof design dust collector provides a one-piece structure that protects your workers against leakage and damage. With many risks at stake, it’s important to consider the best options for your company so that you can avoid being another explosion statistic! For more information or questions, please talk to us at Imperial Systems. We are available to help you decide the best dust collector for your current needs.
