History of The ACT Group

The ACT Group comprises three distinct companies: Applied Conveyor Technology Inc., ACT Dust Control, and Dustco Inc.

The three companies specialize in different aspects of the bulk handling industry and venture into different avenues of environmental control. Formed (as a group) in 1998, the three companies sought to combine administrative, inventory, development and distribution roles into one central location to reduce operating costs and expenses.

Operating under the ACT Group umbrella, each company can specialize in its individual field while utilizing the resources of the other members and partners. Often contracts and applications require the disciplines of all three companies and specialties to offer a complete and viable solution.

This operating practice not only benefits The Group but also offers the customer a cohesive and integral supplier for the complete contract where the different applications work seamlessly with each other.

Applied Conveyor Technology Inc. is the “big brother” of the group and provides the lynchpin around which The ACT Group operates. Formed in 1991, Applied Conveyer Technology supplies systems and components for the bulk handling industry. These include items as diverse as magnets and motor drives; level indicators and conveyor belting; pulleys and screw conveyors.

Applied Conveyor Technology also provides the fabrication and construction mechanics for the rest of the Group.

ACT DUST CONTROL DIVISION specializes in dust collection and similar systems. Their vast experience in dust collection includes bag houses, vacuum systems, drum filters, and all types of service options for dust collection systems. Over 20 years of design and installation experience augment the company’s wide services. They specialize in designing system around clients’ needs and requirements rather than limiting themselves to stock brands.

Dustco Inc. is expert in dust suppression using water in all forms. They design and produce equipment that produces droplets as small as 10 micron (1/10th of the diameter of a human hair) to spray systems that dampen the product as it moves through the process. Lately they have added the use of chemicals to their repertoire to allow a wider range of treatments for differing applications. Dustco Inc. can supply a complete answer to all dust suppression needs and works closely with ACT DUST CONTROL DIVISION to combine talents where applicable.

Dustco Inc. also provides environmental control systems for a wide range of industries. High-pressure fog systems with micron-sized droplets have the ability to cool and humidify environments to offer a perfect storage, growing or living environment. Fog has the ability to cool the surrounding air by as much as 40°F in certain conditions; this effect can be used to cool employees, equipment and processes in a wide variety of applications.
