the Stuart McElrath Company
since 1994

SMC can provide complete engineering design and fabrication drawings for ductwork, fume and dust hoods, exhaust stacks, cyclones etc.. SMC can also provide manufacturing and work with customers contractors for on site installation.

Dust Collection |   Reclamation collector and fan, cold air blending for thermal reclaimer, two reclamation dust collectors and cyclone for thermal reclaimer.  
The Stuart McElrath Company can design, have manufactured and work with installation contractors to install complete dust collection systems consisting of the following components:
Dust Collection Designs
SMC Provides
    Dust Collectors (cartridge and bag units typically)
(graduated designs are generally used for optimum flow)
Dust Hoods (shakeouts, single, double and three sided and for workstations)
(typically used on thermal reclamation systems)
Exhaust Stacks
(typically for dust collector fans)
Spark Arrestors
(used on furnaces, welding booths, reclamation systems)
Dropout Boxes
(typically used on furnace collection systems)
Combustion Air Duct
(typically used in petrochemical industry)
Flue Gas Duct
(typically used in petrochemical industry)
Fan Inlet Box
(typically used in petrochemical industry)
SMC specializes in the design of graduated ductwork along with custom hood design. Graduated ductwork will reduce the overall cost of your dust, fume, and mist collection systems and improve system efficiency. SMC has design hoods for such uses as shakeouts, welding booths and process workstation ventilation.
Dust Hoods & Ductwork |   Single sided dust hood for small nobake aluminum foundry, 3 sided hood for large steel castings and ductwork during installation on a sand reclamation system.  
SMC can also work with customers in the upgrade or maintenance of existing dust collection systems. Typical upgrades include providing drawings for worn out ductwork or exhaust stack replacement, changing to a graduated ductwork design (for improve system efficiency and to prevent material dropout), and replacing elbows (often adding sections for better air flow and greater efficiency).
