The new system comprised of a DCE Tornado Xcell reverse jet high-performance cartridge filter unit offering 24 hour per day 7 day per week operation with low emission levels.
DCE provided a turnkey key project from system design, manufacture of the dust collector to installation of the plant and associated electrics.
