DUSTEX supplied a 20-station extraction system with a central dust collection system for controlling airborne dust from grinders, mills, tumblers and seed cleaners to provide technicians a dust-free working environment.
The AgResearch Grasslands research Centre near Palmerston North focuses on plant breeding and plant molecular biology, ruminant nutrition and land management. Part of the process involves the separation and cleaning of seed in preparation for further study.
Airborne dust from machines/stations such as grinders, mills, tumblers and seed cleaners was an issue. The technicians were in need of a dust-free working environment.
DUSTEX was awarded a contract to supply a 20+ station extraction system for controlling the airborne dust.
The stations included purpose made hoods and flexible arm hoods to cater for the various applications, connected via a ductwork system to a central dust collection system located outside the building.
What does the client say?
“We were very satisfied with the professional manner in which this project came together. It is a real sign of professionalism when, confronted with such a high degree of technical parameters and their associated difficulties, each problem was dealt with very quickly and efficiently and we still made the deadline – even though the scientist shortened the deadline by two weeks and it worked perfectly from day one. This allowed us to complete a million dollar sampling contract on time.
On behalf of all the science teams at AgResearch Grasslands: thank you.”
