Meeting the grain industry’s obligations for explosive dust collection

Ag and Grain Processing Air Filtration System

You are working to make your facility a safe environment and meet new NFPA and EPA combustible dust regulations. Because your grain handling operation is unique, you want a customized, energy-efficient solution, not “one-size-fits-all” dust collection equipment.

This could be a tough project. Or maybe not….

Since 1969 Mac Process has been providing dust collection solutions for the grain industry, serving over a thousand clients worldwide.

SpaceSaver™ The biggest improvement in dust collection is also the smallest

Compact design + efficient performance = reduced costs for you. The SpaceSaver is up to 75% smaller than traditional baghouse collectors, freeing up valuable space and allowing a fit in tight spots. Less expensive to ship and install, the SpaceSaver uses one-piece, easy maintenance cartridges which trap dust more effectively. SpaceSaver dust collectors come with an emissions guarantee.
