Providing Comprehensive Environmental Services for North America
Clean Harbors Dust Control Services capture and contain airborne catalyst dust particles created during catalyst unloading and loading activities. Catalyst dust can have high concentrations of noble metals such as nickel, cobalt, and molybdenum, or precious metals including silver, platinum and rhenium. Most of these metals have considerable reclamation value to a refinery.
Our systems protect personnel from dust particles and metals that are potentially harmful if inhaled while working in and around an area where catalyst is being handled. Clean Harbors dust control services safely and efficiently capture these materials for reclamation or disposal.
An inline drum loading device, designed into the dust collection system, provides uninterrupted drum loading of collected dust. To collect the dust, most systems must have a secondary receiver, which must then be emptied into another container creating additional handling. Our systems are engineered to allow the dust to go directly into 55-gallon drums, which eliminates a second handling and reduces attrition.
