When crushing glass, large irregular shaped particles are formed, which are very abrasive. Donaldson offers different dust filtration systems equipped where necessary with abrasion resistance inlet suitable for raw material or glass crushing applications.
Glass furnace applications are heavy-duty and the materials are typically very abrasive. Donaldson has the expertise and extensive range of dust collectors to provide advanced solutions for this demanding process. The temperature and condensate are other challenges that Donaldson dust collection systems can handle, by tailoring the specification to suit the application to ensure stable, clean and efficient glass production.
Other applications can include intake hoppers and pits, elevators, screw and belt conveyors, holding bins and silos, weigh stations, mixers, feeders, cullet crushers and screens.
Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile
Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile applications include: Conveyors, Elevators, Bins/Silo Vents, Rail/Truck Unloading, Batch Mixing, Spray Glazing, Tunnel Kiln/Furnace, Dry Pressing. Raw materials may include a wide variety of minerals and chemicals. Beyond clay and Cement the list of additional ingredients may include Flint, Feldspar, Alumina, Litharge, Whiting, Magnesite, Talc, Neohheline, Zircon, Borax, Pyrophyllite, Spodumene, Beryl, Lime, Plaster, Cobalt, Boron, Titanium Carbide, Silicone Carbide, Iron Oxide, Barium Titanate, Lead Zirconate, Tin Oxide, Zinc Oxide. These dusts are often abrasive, may be explosive, and are often hydroscopic, and agglomerative. AMR guidance may include cautions regarding the dust characteristics.
Tile manufacturing processes in particular can generate very aggressive applications. Bag life may be limited by higher temperature.
