Insulation panel production
Typhoon has installed a new dust extraction installation for a client who has been a household name in the building industry for many years.
The branch has grown into a manufacturer with an extensive range of insulating roof elements and insulation boards.
To expand their production capacity, a decision was made to establish a brand new industrial facility in France.
The finishing lines for sawing and the application of finger joints both produce a large amount of dust. The decision was made for Typhoon to design the entire dust extraction installations. The complete design consists of supplying, placing and connecting a dust extraction installation for 140,000 m³/h, silo with storage capacity of 500m³, pneumatic conveyors, air recuperation and complete automation throughout. The whole system meets the current ATEX standards. In order to provide extra security, Typhoon also installed and connected an automatic spark detection system with an extinguishing system.
The entire extraction system was divided into separate zones, determined by the different production times of the end products. For this purpose, a Jet filter Ø 6m type general filter installation is negatively pressurised and the different systems are connected to it. The collected dust in the filter is blown via a pneumatic conveyor to a silo of 500 m³, or to a briquette press.
The air coming from the finishing lines is blown back to the different booths in the production. A part of this air is then blown to the outside via an afterburner. This neutralises harmful fumes.
