Imperial Systems’ Dust Collection System Design at a Tire Recycling Center Brings Plant Up to Code


The tire recycling center recognized that their dust collection system did not meet NFPA Guidelines.

The challenge was to utilize the existing dust collection equipment to come up with a solution to meet NFPA explosion guidelines.


The Tire Recycler chose Imperial Systems, Inc. solution over the competition.  Imperial Systems, Inc. proposed to make modifications to the existing dust collection equipment as well as adding new equipment and ducting to the current system.

Jeremiah Wann, President, and Charlie Miller, Sales Engineer for Imperial Systems, worked with Imperial’s engineers to design a system that would work with the current dust collection equipment and the necessary modifications to meet the customers’ needs.  An Imperial Systems High Efficiency Cyclone, three Imperial Systems Heavy Duty Airlocks, two Imperial Backdraft Dampers and all duct work and install were specified.

The Tire Recycling Facility is very satisfied with the operation of their Imperial Systems, Inc. dust collection system.  The new dust collection system, in conjunction with the modifications that were made to the existing equipment has brought the plant up to code and has cleaned up the facility.
