DCS BEATS DUST AT NEW E-RECYCLING PLANT

Dust Control Systems Ltd has recently installed a high efficiency dust extraction system for a technologically advanced recycling plant. The new facility has the capacity to recycle 500,000 televisions and computer monitors a year – equivalent to 10 million kilos of electronic waste.

The plant, owned by global electronics recycler, Citiraya, is based at Hirwaun in South Wales and is the first in the UK to use laser separation technology to recycle glass from cathode ray tubes (CRTs). Recovered glass from the redundant tubes is crushed and cleaned ready for use in new CRT products, thereby recycling over 90% of each TV or monitor.

Robert Noakes, operations manager at the new facility says: “Televisions and computer monitors are manually dismantled at 16 workstations and our priority was to protect our workers from the nuisance of airborne dust and to ensure a comfortable working environment.”

Citiraya called in DCS Ltd. to fully evaluate their requirements and come up with an efficient ‘capture-at-source’ solution. DCS devised a cost-effective proposal, employing custom designed hoods, which capture and entrain dust that is then transported, via QF clip-together ducting, to a cartridge filter.

The award winning Downflo® Oval 1 cartridge filter is a compact, continuous-duty, dust and fume collector. Its modular design has a unique oval cartridge, allowing more than a 10% increase in airflow, together with efficient dust collection even with extremely light and fine particles.
The dust plant is capable of handling air volumes of 27,000 cubic metres per hour and is achieving efficiencies of 99.996 %. Also, thanks to in-line acoustic silencing on the 30 kW fanset, noise levels have been kept well below the required 85 dB(A).
