Camfil: Safe Dust Collector Operation with Stinger Explosion Isolation Valve

Jonesboro (AR), USA – If a dust collector handles combustible dust, the US National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requires operators to equip the system with deflagration protection. For such applications Camfil APC offers the Stinger™ explosion isolation valve, a cost-effective, NFPA-compliant way to contain a deflagration that occurs in a dust collector.

WAMGROUP: SILOTOP® ZERO – The New Generation

In twenty years from its introduction, SILOTOP® has become the global benchmark for silo venting and de-dusting applications. To keep pace with ever-stricter laws on environmental protection in many countries, WAMGROUP® has recently introduced the SILOTOP® ZERO.

This new silo venting filter is not just an evolution of its predecessor. With its new ‘ABSOLUTE’ filter media, SILOTOP® ZERO makes silo venting in concrete plants and other installations even more eco-friendly, reducing dust emission to less than 1mg/Nm3.

Pelletron DeDuster

The Problem: Resin with dust and streamers causes defects in end products

The Solution: The DeDuster®
– Electromagnetic coil reduces the static bond between fine dust and pellets
– Pellets are fluidized over wash deck
– High velocity counterflow air in the venturi zone washes dust and streamers off of pellets
– Dust and streamers are sent to the dust collector with cleaning air

Tech Tips:
Monitoring the Differential Pressure of Your Baghouse
Tips from Schenck Process Service Technicians to ensure your equipment continues to run accurately and efficiently.

  • The differential pressure reading is a simple way to get a quick assessment of how your baghouse is running. It is important to monitor the pressure differential of your baghouse on a regular basis (at least once a day), and make sure the pressure differential gauge is working correctly.
  • If there are any sudden changes in the pressure differential, whether up or down, first make sure the two lines connecting the gauge are not plugged, crimped or damaged.
  • If the gauge is reading “normal” range, and there are no emissions visible, the filter is running properly. If, however, you begin to notice an upward creep in the pressure differential, it can be an indication that the filter bags are beginning to plug and may need to be replaced.
  • If there is sudden upward spike in pressure differential, it is usually symptomatic of an upset condition in the baghouse (for example, a sudden influx of moisture-laden air that decreases bag permeability) or possible problems with the bag-cleaning system.
  • If there is a sudden decrease in pressure differential, often accompanied by visible emissions, may indicate actual failure of one or more filter bags.
  • If you have any questions please contact our Baghouse Service group at 800-821-2476.

Tech Tips:MECHATRON Feeders
Tips from Schenck Process Service Technicians to ensure your equipment continues to run accurately and efficiently.

  • Make sure your flex hopper clamp is above the guide pin on the front of the hopper. This ensures material will never leak from the flex hopper connection.
  • Do not use any chlorine based cleaners on the flexible hopper. If you have questions check with the Schenck Process Service department to make sure you’re cleaner is approved.
  • Make sure your inlet and discharge connections always have a little bit of slack. A feeder on load cells should be “floating.”
  • If in gravimetric mode make sure the feeder remains untouched. Bumping or resting on the feeder while its running can greatly influence the load cells and flow rate.
  • If changing to a new material, contact the Schenck Process Service department to help verify your helix is capable of your required rates.
  • If you have any questions please contact our Technical Service group at 888-742-1249 x3.
