Blue Smoke installs asphalt plant smoke control at BoDean

Blue Smoke Control Division of Butler-Justice, Anaheim, California has completed installation and startup of a full asphalt plant blue smoke control system for removing the blue smoke and odor at BoDean Company, Santa Rosa, California.

Blue smoke is the haze commonly associated with the production of asphalt products. Blue Smoke Control Division applies it’s patented technology to remove over 95% of the blue smoke emissions at this plant.

According to Mike Butler, president of Butler-Justice, “We have the only system that removes up to 99.9% of the suspended particles.

“When you remove the blue smoke, you also significantly reduce the characteristic odor associated with asphalt production.”

BoDean uses two Blue Smoke collection units coupled with a ducting system that carries the emission to the controller from the batch plant and the silos. Ducting was installed by Blue Smoke at the top of silos, on drag slat conveyor transfer points, and at truck load out areas.

These are the key points required to assure that only clean air escapes the plant. The collectors process the air until it is virtually 100% clean of blue smoke haze.

Each collector features seven stages of filtration. Ambient air is incorporated at key points in the ducting to aid in coalescing blue smoke particles into larger droplets that are then filtered out by the Blue Smoke Collectors.

The collected effluent is drained from the filters, which are serviced on a periodic basis.

The Blue Smoke Control Division of Butler-Justice, Inc. has designed and installed collectors at plants throughout the continental United States, Hawaii, Mexico and Australia.
