In heavy industry—as in other fields—the most important part about being in business is simply staying in business. But “staying in business” may be more easily said than done, especially for those industries with stringent environmental compliance regulations. “Staying in business” means maximizing the working hours in the day, complying with environmental regulation, and otherwise not shooting yourself in the foot or committing unforced errors. You rely on heavy machinery to keep you and your
Industry and regulation—the two will forever go hand in hand. But the most successful industrial leaders of our times find ways to appease both sides of the coin. By meeting and maintaining regulatory guidelines, we reallocate resources which help us rise to the top of our field. Electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) are vital components in even the loftiest industrial dreams. But the majority of electrostatic precipitators used today are aging and in dire need of upgrades.
Your electrostatic precipitator keeps your operation compliant with local and federal environmental protection guidelines. But maintaining your electrostatic precipitator can sometimes become an afterthought, leading to diminished performance and compounding issues. At AirTek, we know it’s not always easy to keep on top of daily checks and performance monitoring. But your ESP is too vital to neglect. These are the most common issues discovered in electrostatic precipitators during inspection that you may be able to
Your drag chain conveyor is the workhorse of your plant. You rely on it for smooth, continued operation, and it’s typically dependable to the point where you almost don’t need to think about it. Drag chains are also extremely durable and are built to last. But when your drag chain conveyor breaks down, you know it. The cost of a breakdown hits you two ways: the cost of the parts themselves, and, more seriously, the
As a leader in your industry, you know what an undertaking even small construction projects can be. Sourcing, hiring, and installing take enough time and effort on their own, especially when dealing with heavy electrostatic precipitators and other large air pollution control equipment. To make matters more difficult, you’ll want specialized labor for specialized equipment. Add it all up, and even a relatively simple construction project becomes a major time suck. In our three decades
