Cyclonaire’s convenient, ground-level Pulse Jet Dust Collector is paired with a gravity-fed CycloLok® dense phase pneumatic conveyor for a total collect and convey system. The unit is equipped with on-board controls for automatic, unsupervised operation and no need to empty dust from the hopper. The system operates on plant air and runs only when needed. There is no separate blower and no wasted energy – further ensuring efficiency.
The versatile C&C system will work in cooperation with existing rail or truck unload operations, but can be customized for special applications. The system can be used to recycle dust from all kinds of dry solids, including foodstuffs, corrosive chemicals, and highly abrasive materials, such as cement, slag, or fly ash.
An exhaust fan draws particle-laden air from the silo into the dust collector – where reduced air velocity allows the trapped dust and particles to drop into the hopper. After finer particles are cleaned from the filter media and when the hopper is full, the CycloLok dense phase conveyor is automatically activated. Air entering the tank pushes captured particles through the convey system, returning them to the source silo or another destination. The entire process of cleaning bags and conveying reclaimed dust is controlled automatically by on-board programmable controls.
Requirements for the system, which is available in a welded and bolted 10-gauge carbon steel construction or optional stainless steel, are as follows: average air usage is 20-30 standard cubic feet per cycle, 110 volts for controls, and 230/460 volts for the exhaust fan. Cyclonaire dense phase systems are an efficient way to pneumatically transport dry materials using high-pressure air to transfer slow-moving, tightly packed slugs between 100 and 1,000 feet per minute. Options also include the DPV (vaccum) Series or DPG (gravity) Series, with a top or bottom discharge.
