Let’s face it; recycling plants are not the cleanest of places. There are dusts, gases and a variety of other unknown particles floating through the air, most of which we can’t even see. APS makes several explosion-proof and corrosion resistant products built specifically to withstand harsh, dirty and potentially hazardous environments of recycling and waste treatment.

Perhaps the most useful for recycling are our new Air-Cleaning BlowersTM (ACBs).  These multi-patented blowers move and clean out particles without the use of any filter elements that will clog, restrict airflows, reduce air pressure, and most importantly, need maintenance.  ACBs use the particles’ own momentum to separate them from the air and eject them, even if they are potentially explosive.  If these ACBs could make your facility cleaner, healthier and safer (or help eliminate fines and other legal hassles)


If you have any questions or comments, please let us know. If you have a specific application in mind, please complete our Compressor Project Inquiry Form or our Air Cleaning Blower Project Inquiry Form. We look forward to responding to you as quickly as possible.
