Heaton Green Dust Control
Providing cleaner air in a working Environment
Heaton Green Dust Control are a Made in Yorkshire Silver Member
The company was founded in 1982 by Keith Forman and Philip Sunderland and has been driven forward to become firmly established as a UK market leader in the design and manufacture of dust extraction systems and filtration equipment. Heaton Green has been a family run business and continues until present day.
Employing over 30 personnel occupying its own manufacturing facility in Batley West Yorkshire with over 1700m² of production floor space, sales/projects office, sewing room and administration. Heaton Green also installs all its own equipment and provides an LEV Testing service throughout the UK.
Heaton Green is proud of the reputation it has built up over many years serving numerous industries. To ensure this reputation remains intact, the company continually invests in people, so that a high calibre workforce produces quality machinery.
The company are proud of the fact that their products are Made in Yorkshire and here are examples of the equipment produced:
This filter is continuously rated, where cleaning is achieved by a reverse jet of compressed air. Ideally suited to handling dry, fine and free flowing particulate the CARTRIJET has been applied extensively throughout industry, proving to be a successful and versatile answer to many dust arrestment applications.
This application was in Scotland extracting the dust from a glass fibre trimming operation. The fine GRP dust was captured at the source of generation and filtered through CARTRIJET filter units.
Heaton Green sold the filter units to one of our many resellers and OEM’s, providing the expertise by selecting the most suitable unit with the correct filter area and type of media for the application.
The ECONOJET is a versatile filter, designed around a flat pad filter configuration, cleaned continuously, when in operation, by the use of a reverse pulse of compressed air. Because of its great versatility these filters have been used as small venting filters or built into much larger ‘bag house’ type units. This filter has proved itself, in the field, on a great many applications and continues to be a ‘best seller’.
The photograph above shows a dockside ship unloading facility handling biomass wood pellets into a receiver hopper in Liverpool. The hopper has a series of ECONOJET filter units controlling the dust generated from the process that is extracted from below DUST SUPPRESSION BAFFLES mounted on the top of the hopper. The dust is kept within the system as it is a fuel that can be burnt in the power station.
The ECONOTUBE is a reverse jet cleaned tubular bag filter unit. It is designed to run continuously on a wide range of various industrial processes, handling many different types of fine and coarse dusts.
It is usually applied to more arduous duties, is more forgiving to difficult applications and has developed over the years into a consistently reliable filter unit, adopted by many companies across the UK.
The photograph above shows an ECONOTUBE filter extracting malt dust from a warehouse packing different types of malt for export to breweries and distilleries worldwide, and an off Kiln aspirator. The waste collected from the filter unit is transported to a trash bin via a closed loop blowing system designed and supplied by Heaton Green.
The ECONOMECH range of filter units is designed to be used for extraction systems that are operated intermittently, on a variety of dusts from many different processes, offering a cost effective solution to those dust extraction problems.
The filter unit is cleaned by an automatically operated mechanical shake mechanism, which is energised when the fan set has been shut down. There are numerous configurations of the Economech, tailored to suit the requirements of a particular collection process. The Economech was first introduced in March 1982 and has been working successfully throughout industry, since that time, demonstrating a track record of reliability and performance.
The installation shown above is extracting fine powders from a tipping and blending booth in a factory in Blackburn. Each powder that goes into the blend is weighed in the booth and the personnel are protected from breathing in the airbourne powders by the extraction system that was designed and installed by Heaton Green.
The powders in the blend are then combined in a mixing vessel in the manufacture of silicone components for industry. The dust from the mixer is also extracted into a separate Heaton Green ECONOMECH dust extraction system fitted alongside the one shown.
FILTER BAG MANUFACTURING
Heaton Green operates its own sewing department primarily manufacturing filter elements for use in their own equipment, whether it be for new plant or replacement spare parts.
The experienced workforce enables Heaton Green to offer replacements spares for most makes of filter including multi pocket elements and tubes, all at competitive prices.
Only the best quality materials are used, sourced and manufactured in the United Kingdom with an extensive range of media being available to meet the demands of the various applications.
Other textile fabrications are also undertaken from flexible connections to canvas chutes and enclosures.
Heaton Green are a UK market leader in the design, manufacture and installations of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems and with over 30 plus years experience are well placed to fulfil the requirements of an LEV inspection.
The legal requirements of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), mean that these inspections should be carried out by a competent person, at regular intervals, with a maximum interval between being 14 months. This interval, however, will often be determined by the application and usage of the equipment.
The Factory Inspectorate have produced a guideline, HSG 258, which outlines the specific requirements of LEV systems from the point of view of the user, supplier, installer and maintenance personnel. This publication is our working reference, which ensures our inspection visits fully meet with the requirements of COSHH.
