Optimizing a Southeastern Paper Mill

The ID fan and dust collection system at a paper mill in the Southeastern United States had a long-standing problem with inefficient dust particle capture, excessive pollution levels, and high energy costs.

ProcessBarron modified the system to reduce system pressure drop and increase fan efficiency by taking a comprehensive total-system approach: analyzing the interactions of each component, isolating the trouble spots, and providing a complete engineering, testing, design, fabrication, and installation solution that provided a rapid ROI.
