Original Press Release:

K&B Duct Launches Sparkbuster Inline Spark Arrestor that Cools Glowing Embers within Exhaust Ducting System

Greensboro, North Carolina- K&B Duct, A CECO Environmental Company and leading supplier of pre-fabricated ducting products developed for environmental dust collection, introduces SparkBuster, an inline spark arrestor. The SparKBuster is a static mixing device that operates by cooling glowing embers within the exhaust ducting system. It cools the sparks by changing the characteristics of the gas flow through the duct from laminar to turbulent flow. This change in type of flow causes a relative velocity difference between the sparks and the gas flowing past the sparks. It is effective when the air temperature in the process is lower than the spark temperature. The sparks will be cooled to within 200°F of the gas temperature in the duct. The SparKBuster is suitable for spark arrestor duty and, under prescribed conditions, will eliminate any sparks and embers from the air stream.  It has a slim, inline design, is low to no maintenance, has an auto-self-cleaning option available and no moving parts.  The easy installation, in both new or existing systems as well as flanged or clamp-together systems, allows for quick deployment of a spark arrestor in your dust collection system.  Sparkbuster is available in 4 inch sizes and up and special fabrication is available.
