Frost & Sullivan recently selected Scientific Dust Collectors as the recipient of the 2006 U.S. Industrial Air Filtration Technology Leadership of the Year Award in recognition of its ability to provide superior technology solutions for the U.S industrial air pollution control market.

“The overall industrial air filtration market has not witnessed many notable technological developments in the recent years, which increases the significance of those achieved by Scientific Dust Collectors,” says Frost & Sullivan industry analyst Jorge Moreno.

Scientific has launched many new products with appreciable developments. For instance, the company’s advanced field cartridge collector, the SL-HR series helps end users reduce their maintenance and operating costs as well as uses few cartridges.

SL-HR cartridge collectors use reverse pulsejet mechanism and can efficiently remove sub-micron particulates. The other attractive features of the cartridge include a nozzle based cleaning system, internal air baffles, evasé– a special projection to maximize airflow for better cleaning and reduced pressure drops, same front and back cartridge, and a spring-loaded door.

The same cleaning advances are true of their SPJ baghouse series.

“With these value-add features, the company has succeeded in achieving lower pressure drops, less damage to filter media thus improving filter life, reducing the need for a cyclone pre-filters, and better options for synthetic filter media,” says Moreno.

Overall, Scientific continues to be unmatched in the industrial air filtration industry for major innovations and its ability to directly influence customer business. In recognition of its ongoing commitment to excellence in technology and customer value, Frost & Sullivan presents Scientific Dust Collectors with the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Technology Leadership of the Year Award in the U.S. industrial air filtrations markets.

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to a company that has demonstrated excellence in technology leadership within its industry.
