With over 68 years of experience in the Air Pollution Control (APC) Industry, Dustex continues to supply its customers with innovative solutions through a wide range of disciplines. Operating as a fully functional design, fabrication, installation & commissioning supplier, Dustex focuses on remaining highly efficient & cost effective through the use of Dustex’s own organically developed technical ideas that have been developed to handle your multi-pollution control needs. Through Dustex’s access to vast technical archives regarding air filtration, gas cooling & gas scrubbing systems and newly developed APC equipment, Dustex continues to be in the forefront of the APC market.
Dustex’s organic growth is a result of its development of over 20 patents as a designer and fabricator, offering turnkey projects that address Particulate Matter, SOx, Mercury and NOx control for two decades.
We strive to be your single source from the design through to decades of efficient APC at your facility. Our aftermarket parts & control panel assembly divisions located in Acworth, Georgia, as well as our manufacturing facilities are in Rocky Mount, North Carolina and our captive shop in Ohio enable us to provide quality equipment, parts, and service.
We currently market our products through a network of North American independent manufacturers’ agents & we have Licensees in overseas locations. We appreciate the continued relationships with our customers, dating back to as early as the 1960’s.
Over the past 60+ years Dustex has evolved from a high efficiency cyclone supplier for the food industry to a single source air pollution control technology company.
Originally founded in Buffalo, New York in 1947, Dustex began as a designer & manufacturer of high efficiency cyclonic separators for the food industry. During the following decade, the company developed a line of dry fabric filters, marketed throughout North America. By the 1960’s, after being acquired by American Precision Industries, Dustex had become established as the industry leader in the design & manufacture of fully portable reverse air dust collectors for the asphalt & related aggregate industries. In 1984, key employees incorporated Dustex in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dustex continued to provide its customers with high quality and efficient Pre-Engineered Systems.
In 1998, Dustex made two major strategic changes to grow and serve the needs of several industries by creating an Engineered Systems Division for custom design of APC equipment and adding the use of a captive fabrication shop. The captive fabrication shop, Pickaway Machine, located in Kingston, Ohio, continues to solely fabricate for Dustex. Today, our Systems (Engineered Products) Division, located in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, has completed over 500 major installations through 2015. These installations include systems for military and university boiler flue gas filtration, glass furnace particulate and acid gas dry scrubbing, steel and foundry furnace fume control, cement nuisance and process particulate control, non-ferrous furnace and refining fume control, foundry cupola heat recovery and particulate control, aluminum recycle fume control, and acid gas dry scrubbing, rock products, coal handling, industrial boiler and other major markets with complete system design, gas cooling and filtering equipment, and field services.
From 2007 to 2014, Dustex continued to develop APC pre-engineered and engineered systems’ technologies, patenting these technologies and staying ahead of emissions regulations. In the interest of meeting all APC needs today and in the future, Dustex continues to grow. Sparstane Technologies, our most recent addition, enables the conversion of scrubber waste to saleable products.
Today, Dustex has evolved into a full-service designer & manufacturer of multi-pollution control systems with unparalleled in-house engineering expertise working both nationally & internationally. Dustex continues to operate with the owner and the leadership team’s daily involvement in customer interaction & project execution.
