Research and Development

CDC is continuously examining all its equipment and embarking on development of new products to both enhance the existing range, and to examine and search for new and better ways of ensuring that our equipment is compliant. 

An extensive portion of the budget has been allocated for research and development on improving the existing products to meet technology advancements and to continuously abide by  legislation requirements on improving noise levels, increased volume for improved dust counts.

Currently a number of projects are running on the testing and development of better performing products.
Current Projects
Impeller redesign - reduce weight and noise levels, improve performance
Hydraulic Driven Fans - reduced costs, variable speed leading to reduced noise, smaller units
Fan Performance Improvement
Screen Loading Detection
Screen flushing System
New Type Fan

CDC has continued to supporting research carried out by the CSIR, by donating equipment for the test facilities at Klopperbos, to ensure our products are scientifically and operationally approved.
