Surrette Battery Co. Replaces Baghouse with
Whirl Wet Dust Collector for Pasting Operation.
Surrette Battery Company Limited, Springhill, Nova Scotia is a leading lead-acid battery
manufacturer, and Canada's only independent battery manufacturer. The battery company
manufactures long-life, true "deep cycle" battery systems for railroad, marine, industrial and
renewable energy applications.
Surrette Battery wanted a corrosion-free system that would withstand acid fumes from a paste
mixer when materials were damp, and collect the dusts that were generated when materials
(which had high concentrations of lead oxide) were dry. A baghouse met environmental
requirements, but the company's proactive management wanted a more reliable dust collector
that had minimal maintenance requirements and would accommodate future growth.
The answer was an all-polypropylene Whirl Wet dust collector.
Whirl Wet dust collector systems are widely used throughout the battery industry for collecting
lead oxide dusts in battery paste-making operations. These wet dust collector systems operate
quietly, accommodates heavy dust loadings and are self-cleaning. Whirl Wet dust collectors
can be set up for continuous, "24/7" operation.
The 2500 cfm Whirl Wet dust collector chosen by Surrette Battery collects dusts 1 micron and
above at 99.5% efficiency. Our dust collector systems will not clog or blind in high-humidity
conditions, and are unaffected by acid fumes. Water use is low, and water level is
