What is an industrial dust collector?

Industrial dust collectors are used in many processes to either recover valuable granular solid or powder from process streams, or to remove granular solid pollutants from exhaust gases prior to venting to the atmosphere. Dust collection is an online process for collecting any process-generated dust from the source point on a continuous basis. Industrial dust collectors may be of single unit construction, or a collection of devices used to separate particulate matter from the process air. They are often used as an air pollution control device to maintain or improve air quality.

Central Dust Collector

A central dust collector is designed to create a negative pressure at a dust source point and pull the fugitive material into the collector where dust is filtered out of the air stream. Dust is then dropped into the hopper off the unit so it can be placed back into the manufacturing process or disposed of properly.

The main components of a central dust collector:

  • Dirty-air chamber
  • Hopper (to house collected material)
  • Hopper discharge valve
  • Filtration media
  • Negative pressure fan/motor assembly
  • Filtration cleaning mechanism
  • Clean-air chamber
  • Fan exhaust

The components of a central dust collector must be engineered properly so contaminated air flows efficiently into the collector, through the collector and clean air is processed out of the unit into the environment.

 

Silo Dust Collector

A  silo dust collector offer pulse jet technology combined with cartridge or bag filters to provide a highly effective, yet inexpensive solution for dust control.

The silo collectors are engineered by dust control specialists with careful attention to efficiency and user-friendliness.

Also available are weigh batcher collectors and round silo collectors.

 

Mobile Dust Collector

A mobile dust collector offers cartridge pulse technology combined with a truly mobile dust collection system for producers on the move.

This unit features a quick voltage connect system for easy and quick transportation of the unit to minimize loss of production time.

These units are efficient and user-friendly with no permit required when traveling on the highway and do not require a crane for erection. Our CP-Series mobile dust collectors provide the best filtration available and tool-less media exchange.
