Schliengen, Germany –At a factory of a food manufacturer, a suitable filter system was installed to clean the dust-laden exhaust air generated during the processing of dairy powder. In order to ensure that the dedusting system continues to function reliably even after prolonged operation, a ProSens dust measurement system from SWR engineering Messtechnik was installed, which continuously monitors the dust concentration in the clean gas side after filter elements.
Braeside (VIC), Australia – WARNING! Enter with Extreme Caution! On-site safety signs are designed to alert maintenance workers to potential hazards before entering and performing maintenance work in dangerous and unsafe materials handling environments such as inside chutes, silos and hoppers. Often the necessary maintenance work may require permits and adherence to safety precautions before entering these “confined areas”.
Neponset (IL), United States – Martin Engineering has helped mitigate dust emissions at the underground limestone mine of a cement production plant by implementing an innovative transfer point solution. Using a specially-designed dust control unit (DCU) to spray a surfactant onto both sides of the cargo stream during transfer onto the main conveyor, Martin Engineering was able to help Continental Cement Company, LLC, suppress fugitive dust both along the underground belt path and during discharge at the outdoor storage yard.
Peoria (IL), United States – A leader in dust control solutions has helped a port located along the Hudson River control fugitive particle emissions at the dock and in the industrial park using atomized mist technology. The Port of Coeymans employs two DustBoss® DB-60™ atomized mist cannons from BossTek® for dust suppression in a variety of activities and applications.
Ponte Motta, Italy — During the celebration of its 50th anniversary on 15 June 2018, the WAMGROUP inaugurated its new technology centre at the company headquarters in Italy. Research at the new facility focuses on bulk material characterization, dust filtration, solid-liquid separation in livestock farming and various branches of industry, wastewater treatment and hydropower.
Belleville (NJ), United States – VAC-U-MAX has announced ATEX Certification for three of its compressed-air-powered (non-electrical) industrial vacuum cleaning systems for use in explosion-hazard environments. ATEX Certification requires a third-party review and full testing of VAC-U-MAX equipment, not just the design paperwork. The testing organization, Intertek, located in Cortland NY, is a Nationally Recognized Testing Lab (NRTL) as designated by OSHA.
The Martin Engineering Center for Bulk Materials Handling Innovation (CFI) is the company’s new home for worldwide research and new product development.
Located on the company’s Neponset, Illinois campus, CFI is focused on solving problems encountered with the handling of bulk materials and advancing the technologies used in bulk material industries.

Peoria, IL, USA, November 9, 2016 – An industry leader in open area dust and odor control has introduced a technology that allows the delivery of atomized mist solutions in customizable shapes and sizes, giving manufacturers and bulk handlers virtually unlimited options in dust and odor suppression. Dust Control Technology® (DCT) is complementing its existing line of stationary dust suppression rings with the ability to produce geometric shapes, bars or other configurations, customized to the needs of the specific application. Each design is specially-engineered for the application and equipment of the individual customer for superior dust management.
Bulk Bag Unloader Provides Closed-cycle Dust Containment; Protects Personnel from Migrant Dust, Improves Bag Spouting Efficiency, and Protects Process Operations from Contaminants
Holland, Michigan (December 1, 2016) – National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE) – This NBE bulk bag unloader was designed, engineered, and built to address specific dust reduction, and process operation efficiency requirements identified by NBE during the application assessment. A non-NBE unit, that was previously in operation, often caused material dust release during the bag spouting sequence; presenting operator hazards and slowing process cycle times and changeovers. In response, NBE developed a process-specific bulk bag discharger that enables the operator to easily and properly spout the bulk bag while simultaneously enclosing the bag spout interface within the NBE E3® closed-cycle dust recovery system.
