A Dust collector is made to collect and remove airborne dust and particle matter, produced by manufacturing, and processing processes continuously and at a 99+% efficiency rate on several installations. These operations can release clean, filtered air back into the work area, which lowers climate control expenditures.
How to Dust collection with cartridge dust collectors?
Reverse pulse cleaning of the bags or cartridges enables for continuous collection, and removal of airborne dry dust and particulate matter (PM), allowing operations without interruption, providing features such as
· Pleated cartridge dust filters with a long life
· Various dust collector filter media
· Cartridges for dust collectors are simple to install and remove
· Modular architecture
· Ductwork can be provided, along with evaluations, suggestions, and designs
· Integral pressure gauges showing how well a filter is working
Use of silica
Crystalline silica is a widely used material in many different sectors, such as concrete and ceramics. Silica must be gathered and removed from workstations and production lines, during a manufacturing process to prevent a build-up of high amounts of particulate matter, and its dispersion into the environment.
High quantities of silica dust exposure can be detrimental to the health of those nearby, if it is not adequately collected.
The Design of Cartridge Dust Collectors
A common and effective method for removing silica from an operation, which needs continuous collection, is with a cartridge dust collector. To achieve the needed dust capture, application-specific design factors including, the right collector size, media choice, hood geometry, routine maintenance, heavy-duty ducting, and sufficient airflow are essential.
When developing and specifying the parts of a collection system, engineers must take into account the crystalline silica's abrasive properties. High duct transfer velocity is necessary for silica, which increases wear from abrasion. To enhance operable life, heavy gauge ducting with long radius elbows and wear plates, should be taken into consideration.
To ensure long life under abrasive conditions, dampers and other ducting components, should also have the proper linings, reinforcements, or wear protection. Engineering professionals should be aware that operating life may decrease, and maintenance frequency may rise, if funds for these types of improvements are constrained.
Media Selection Filter
The choice of filter medium is essential for appropriate design. The optimal choice will be made after consulting with application engineers, from media suppliers and taking into account factors such as temperature, moisture content, silica load, filter cleaning design, etc.
Slower flow rates in the collector may save wear on the filters, but this must be considered against industry standards for collector design, as a whole. Cartridge Dust Collectors can be utilized successfully for silica applications, if the abrasive character of the dust and its impact on control device design, are properly taken into account.
Cartridge filter cleaning and performance
Our collector's cartridges are positioned vertically. This guarantees that when the dust is ejected from the cartridges, it will fall to the collector's bottom.
Dust pulses from above cartridges fall onto cartridges below in machines with horizontal cartridges. Due to the reduction in filtration capacity, additional rotating cartridge maintenance is required.
