When running a grain elevator, mill or other type of food-handling plant that releases a lot of dust or chaff into the air, you want to focus on your product and so you must keep your facility as clean to eliminate the risk of explosion and fire.  In many cases you would like to recover any escaping product for reuse and not just collect it for disposal in an expensive bag house or other dust collector.  APS makes a variety of explosion proof and corrosion resistant Air-Cleaning BlowersTM (ACBs) and UL-recognized “explosion-proof” refrigeration and air-conditioning compressors built specifically to address those problems. These products are made simply and durably with heavy duty materials to make them reliable, and easy to install and maintain.

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.
