A maintenance manager at a pet food manufacturer was interested in a dust collection/green energy solution with a more dependable and repeatable valve that would extend the life of their collection bags and provide energy savings while increasing uptime at their busy facility. The plant is running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, producing 700 tons of pet food per day – a busy place! The old technology (diaphragm valves) did a poor job of cleaning the bags. DP was at 5 inches of water. They also had failing diaphragms, valves freezing, cracked hose lines, leaks from fittings, and non-responsive remote pilots.
Steve and the FPE Automation team were able to reduce these failure points by removing the remote pilots, along with the fittings and hoses that came from the valves. They replaced the legacy equipment with the pulse valve by MAC Valves with an integral solenoid. After installing the MAC Pulse Valve, the DP dropped to 2 inches of water. The new valves were far more efficient and saved energy costs as well. The customer was impressed and convinced. The pet food plant proceeded to replace all of its dust collectors with the MAC Pulse Valve Solution.
