Operational Details

Dust laden air enters the unit through an inlet spigot located directly above the dust collecting bin. Large particles drop into the bin as the air enters the unit due to a drop in air speed and to the sudden change in flow direction. The air is drawn upwards through the filter bags where the fine particles are collected. Finally clean air is drawn into the fan and then discharged either back into the factory or to atmosphere.

The fine dust is deposited on the inside of the bag is dislodged after shut down of the fan by shaking so that the dust may fall into the collection bins. Shaking is carried out by an electric motor which is automatically actuated when the fan is de-energised and has been allowed to run down and stop. The dust collection bins may be removed for emptying by simply releasing the quick release and pulling forward.

Access to the filter element and shaker and mechanism for inspection and maintenance is through the large door on the front of the unit.

For most applications the fan is contained within an acoustic enclosure.
Secondary filter elements and enclosures are available.
