  • Selecting a Cyclone Dust Collector

    Cyclone dust collectors are easily confused with normal dust collectors. These are different and proficient to removing large amounts of harmful dust and rough material particles that are flowing in the air. Cyclone dust collectors can also pick up contaminants before hitting the filter. When it comes to the process of filtration, cyclone ...

  • Filter Your Air with Cartridge Dust Collector

    A cartridge dust collector uses filtering cartridges and is a self-cleaning dust collector. The cartridges it uses are made from synthetic fibers and cellulose that is treated chemically. This ensures the particles are efficiently collected without forming an excessive pressure drop in the system. Structure A cartridge dust collector uses an air-jet cleaning structure to preserve ...

  • Let’s Talk About the Design of Cartridge Dust Collectors

    When it comes to choosing a cartridge filter, the choice usually depends on the application. Systems with finer particles require a cartridge filter, and these come in the choice of two. Surface and Depth-Type Filters A surface filteris ideal when filtering remains of similar-sized particles. Depth-type filters capture pollutants and particles ...

  • Dust collection dilemma: ostrich egg dust

    Rick Peil from the Toolking Superstore was presented with an interesting dust collection dilemma. Tamera Seevers creates unique fine art out of ostrich eggs (www.tameraseeversstudio.com). Carving and finishing the ostrich eggs takes up to three months and creates a very fine, ostrich egg dust. Her problem was with her 1-micron bag on the dust collection system, the dust was still escaping into ...

  • Choosing a Cyclone Collector

    CYCLONE COLLECTORS Many of us have seen the large funnel shaped mass of metal sitting outside of a manufacturing facility, school or processing plant. These are cyclone dust collectors and they come in many shapes and sizes. If you are curious how they work or are wondering which one will be the right one for your process, read on. HOW THEY WORK Cyclone dust ...

  • Improving the cleaning cycle in baghouse collectors

    ABSTRACT: Background The reverse pulse jet baghouse has been around for over 45 years and the cleaning cycle has not changed very much since that time. The cleaning cycle is the most important part of the dust collector because it controls efficiency and media life. In a generic baghouse, the cleaning system is comprised of a blowpipe that is located typically approximately three inches above ...

  • Advantages of cleaning without a venturi in baghouse collectors

    ABSTRACT: Background The cleaning cycle is the most important part of the dust collector because it controls efficiency and media life. In order to clean a row of bags in a reverse pulse jet baghouse first the flow of filtered air must be momentarily stopped and then back flushed or “induce” air to knock the dust cake off the outside of the filter media. A venturi at the top of the ...

  • Improve performance by installing a larger filter bag

    YOU MIGHT NOT NEED a more powerful dust collector after all. That’s the word from woodworkers who’ve replaced the original equipment filterbags on their collectors with bags that are more efficient. You might ask, “What can be more efficient than the 1 micron bag that came with my collector?” The answer is a 1 micron bag that’s properly sized for your machine and ...

  • Efficient Dust Collection, Plus Product Recovery Benefit Fertilizer Manufacturer.

    Mears Fertilizer manufactures fertilizers and packages a recovered by-product, brine, for use as “ice melt.” Collecting dry fertilizer dusts from manufacturing and packaging operations is a major operations priority. Mears had used various types of dry “bag house” equipment, but results had been unsatisfactory. For a new installation, the company was determined to avoid bag houses. The area where ...

  • Hester Industries: Whirl / Wet Combines High Efficiency Wet Dust Collection with Low Maintenance and Operating Costs.

    Chicken processor Hester Industries bought a polypro Whirl/Wet to serve the breading operation at the company’s Moorefield, WV plant. The breading generated fugitive dust; the bag collectors originally installed to collect the sticky dust were not adequate to the task. The hygroscopic nature of the dust made the Whirl / Wet dust collector a cost-effective choice. Excess spice/flour dust is ...

  • GM-Delphi: Whirl / Wet Combines High Efficiency Wet Dust Collection with Low Maintenance and Operating Costs

    Tri-Mer® dust collection technology has once again been selected by GM-Delphi. Four units were selected as replacements for dry collectors. Each unit serves four grinding (or shot blasting) stations. Capacities range from 425 to 52,500 cubic ft./minute. The units will accommodate very heavy loadings under continuous use, and allow regular maintenance without interrupting production. Equally ...

  • To prevent blinding in dust collection systems, consider filter type, filter size and selection of the filter media used

    All dust collection systems, regardless of size, share a common problem—dust blinding. Simply stated, blinding is defined as when dust particles plug the holes in a filter and stop the flow of air through the filter, resulting in the dust collector performing poorly. All types of collectors, whether stand-alone units, cyclones or full-scale baghouses, are subject to blinding. To better ...

  • New Nozzle Technology “Cleaning More with Less”

    This technical paper will explain the new nozzle technology developed by Scientific Dust Collectors that allows high air-to-cloth ratio baghouses to use 80psig of compressed air instead of the industry standard 100psig.   The reverse pulse jet baghouse has been around for over 50 years and the cleaning cycle has not changed very much during that time. The cleaning cycle is the most important ...

  • Ineffective cleaning in generic baghouses

    ABSTRACT: Background In a typical “generic” baghouse application, the cleaning is accomplished by back-flushing the filter with compressed air that travels through an orifice hole in a purge tube (blow pipe) and through a venturi. A typical generic cleaning system allows dust to be filtered at an air-to-cloth ratio of 5:1. That means for every 5 CFM of airflow, there is 1 square foot ...

  • Manufacturing facility cleaning case study

    The Challenge A large Industrial manufacturing facility found that their process used to perform the necessary tasks was creating an undesirable accumulation of heavy metals dust throughout the entire plant. Not only was this a potential health risk to the plant workers, there was a structural and safety problem because the dust could spark and cause a fire or explosion. ...

  • Asbestos contaminated soil case study

    An active gypsum manufacturing facility discovered they had a large area of gypsum waste containing asbestos mixed with soil at the back of their property. The waste had accumulated over the years before the dangers of asbestos were known and now required remediation due to communication wires buried in the waste. Excavators could not be used due to the presence of the communication wires that ...

  • Moving difficult-to-handle bulk materials with flexible screw conveyors

    Flexible screw conveyor systems can be engineered to transport bulk materials that tend to pack, cake, smear, break apart or fluidize, and can prevent the separation of blended products. Flexible screw conveyors (Fig. 1) are suitable for most bulk materials, from sub-micron powders to large pellets, both free-flowing and non-free flowing. They are capable of conveying bulk materials at any angle ...
