Mac Process air filtration technologies

With an array of dust collectors that include pulse jet, reverse air, medium-pressure controlled cleaning, cartridge and HEPA systems, Mac Process can properly identify and solve virtually all industrial air pollution problems. Create an emission and dust free operation, benefiting production processes and improving the environment.  It is important that mineral handling facilities employ dust collection systems that are:

  • Custom-designed per plant specifications
  • Meet or exceed MSHA, OSHA & NFPA68 expectations
  • Specifically designed to be low maintenance
  • Limit emissions

The MCF PowerSaver is a sustainable, low maintenance air filtration solution which operates with low pressure cleaning air (7-9 psig). It consumes less horsepower than any other bag filter and requires no integrated plant compressed air. Providing unrivaled cleaning capacities (up to 250,000 CFM), the MCF PowerSaver can handle challenging environments such as operation in high temperatures (over 500⁰F).
