Specialized Applications

Specialized Dust Collection Applications

Since 1995, Environmental Solutions has been helping businesses, like yours, improve their workplace air quality. Whether your company requires the removal of oil mist, fumes, dust from machining metals, woodworking or other applications; we can expertly engineer and install a quality Donaldson Torit solution to meet your unique needs. No system is too big or too small.

We also have specialized expertise in specialized applications, including hazardous dust or fumes, such as:

Frac Sand Silica Dust


The use of hydraulic fracturing or "fracking" has increased significantly in the last 10 years because of new horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracking (or “completions”) technologies that improve access to natural gas and oil deposits. This process can also generate high levels of dust with respirable crystalline silica. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) identified exposure to airborne silica as a health hazard to workers conducting some hydraulic fracturing operations during recent field studies. At Environmental Solutions, we can work with you to mitigrate this risk through the implementation of dust control technologies.

Grain Filtration and Dust CollectionGRAIN PROCESSING

Grain processing applications require reliable dust collection and combustible dust mitigation solutions. Environmental Solutions backed by Donaldson Torit has filtration expertise to meet the most challenging grain-handling operations and dusty situations. At every stage of production, we offer a variety of filtration technology solutions to address your nuisance dust, including: unloading, storage, transfer, grinding, milling, crushing, blending and packaging.


In welding operations, workers are in a daily contact with harmful weld fume particulate because weld fume is made up of 30 to 80% submicron-sized particles. That means that most of these particles are respirable (enter the lungs), which makes it critical to have reliable, high performance fume collectors, weld fume extraction and weld smoke filters that collect the fume before it reaches your welder’s breathing zone. Environmental Solutions can assist you by engineering a Donaldson Torit welding fume extraction solution that will help safeguard your welding work environment.


OSHA NFPA StandardsThe metal fabrication industry has to deal with aluminum, magnesium and titanium, and is exposed to many standards set by the NFPA 484 for Explosive Combustible Metal Dust. Machining, grinding and related work on these metals generates a dust that is both flammable and explosive and needs to be collected and stored under water to prevent spark ignition of the gathered material. Environmental Solutions has a broad range of experience installing Wet Collectors, such as Schubert Environmental's Downdraft Tables and Wet Collectors, which meet or exceed all relevant NFPA and OSHA Standards.

As well as PLC integration...


Finally, Environmental Solutions does more than just sell, engineer, install and maintain dust collectors and systems, we also offer a full range of contol panel options. Whether controlling a single dust collector, on-demand cleaning, or a plant-wide dust collection solution, we can configure and integrate a PLC or series of PLCs that will help control and automate the process.
