The Engineers Collaborative provides professional consulting, engineering, and design services for industrial ventilation systems, dust control systems, and vapor control systems to help protect workers' health and plant facilities. We utilize current technologies incorporating dust control hoods, vapor control hoods, local industrial exhaust systems, dust containment booths, dust explosion protection and dust filtration systems.
Industrial Exhaust, Dust Control and Vapor Control System
Consulting, Planning, and Design
Our experience in the industry with our systematic planning allows us to make the most effective and economical use of equipment, facilities, people, saving you money and downtime.
Planning gives us the control points to measure our success at project milestones and our success at system start-up.
The Engineers Collaborative can help set up an Action Plan for a specific dust control and vapor control projects as follows:
- A Needs Analysis is developed to support the Action Plan.
- A Specific Objective is set as the desired result of the Action Plan.
- Standards are developed as the milestones that must be reached in order to satisfy the Specific Objective.
- Program Steps are listed to show the work that needs to be done, to assign the responsibilities for the work and to set the schedules to be met.
Industrial Ventilation Survey, Analysis, and Consulting
The Engineers Collaborative conducts a careful analysis of your industrial operations. Process equipment is studied to determine the source and nature of airborne dust and vapor generation. Maintenance, material handling improvements, and process changes are considered as the first steps to reduce fugitive dust and vapor. The Engineers Collaborative is client-minded not hardware-oriented.
Probable design and construction costs can be developed before design begins for client up-front cost control and budgeting.
Our Expertise in Industrial Ventilation, Dust Collection, and
Dust Control Solves Your Problems
Our experience in "real-world" industrial settings allows us to understand your needs and to engineer ventilation and dust and vapor control solutions that will work and are cost effective.
In our systematic process and analysis, production and maintenance personnel are interviewed to assure that the dust and vapor capture solutions do not interfere with operations.
Client industrial hygiene and safety requirements are reviewed and control concepts are developed accordingly.
Unique capture system concepts are developed based on the specific application rather than expensive sales catalog "solutions" that don't always fit your unique problems.
Consulting, Planning, and Engineering of Existing and
New Industrial Ventilation and Dust Control Systems
Many existing dust and vapor control systems can be effectively upgraded without major disruptions to production. Recommendations can be made to assure that existing systems operate at peak efficiency minimizing downtime and loss of productivity.
To be cost effective, we let you know which system components can be reused. We select and design new components, as necessary, to work with your existing system for better dust control or vapor control.
Our engineering experience saves you money on the implementation of your project. The Engineers Collaborative's construction-type design documents will result in more accurate construction bids, will minimize the need for shop drawings, will reduce construction time, and will minimize construction extras.
On-Budget Construction and Trouble Free Start-Up
With our experienced consulting services, requests for construction bids can be organized to give you active cost control during the entire construction phase of the project.
Construction bids can be reviewed to compare with project design documents and specifications to assure that your bid responses match the project's goals.
Site visits can be made during construction to check fabrication and installation progress against design intent, preventing problems before they become time or cost issues.
System start-up performance can be checked and compared to project goals.
Plant personnel can be trained in the proper operation and maintenance of the system.
