New dust collection technology proves its performance in difficult application

Summary: Plugging and clogging is a common problem when dust collection units are employed in the production process of mineral wool insulation materials. The fibres tend to entangle and bridge, and when coming out of the melting-oven virtually glue together. The Dutch Isover plant in Etten-Leur solved this problem by installing a new PowerCore® dust collection unit.

1 Introduction

Insulation of buildings is a major topic with regards to energy-savings: With a state-of the art insulation, the owner of an existing building can save up to 90 % of energy, as the yearly European contest “Isover Energy Efficiency Awards” regularly demonstrates. By doing so, house owners will not only save remarkable amounts of money but also contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions and the protection of the environment.
