How do I deal with dusty conditions in my lube room?

By Ben Wolf, The IFH Group

One comment we hear is “Our plant is very dusty. The oil storage and dispensing system has a vent in every container and dust is going to contaminate the oil.”

Dusty conditions should certainly be considered carefully. The standard vents have a coarse screen that keeps large items from entering the containers, but for filtering the air that is drawn into the containers, a desiccant air breather should be considered. The IFH Group can supply these with a new system or they can easily be retrofitted. The desiccant breather not only filters the air being drawn into the container, but it also removes moisture from the air that will go into the container. This is particularly useful in damp or humid conditions.
