STAINLESS STEEL DUST COLLECTORS

With millions of CFM going through operating A.C.T. Dust Collectors every day worldwide, we have experience with applications in many industries!  Custom designed and built systems are common, and our engineering team can help find the dust collection system that's right for you.

Dirty air from the dust source enters the A.C.T. dust collector at the top of the main housing. There are inlets on the roof and optional inlets on the front for the most efficient connection. As air enters the dust collector, dust accumulates on the outside of the filters as air is drawn through the high-efficiency media. The air flowing down through the system greatly assists the fallout of dust into the hopper where it is discharged. When the pulse clean system activates and accumulated dust is released from the cartridges, the air flowing downward through the collector assists dust fallout again. This avoids dust from getting re-entrained and accumulating on the filter again. Systems with vertical filters — with air entering from the side or below — struggle to avoid dust getting picked back up in the airstream or "re-entrained."

Stainless Steel Dust Collectors are especially crucial in food processing and pharmaceutical operations.

A.C.T. has several stainless collectors in the field currently and has mastered the balance to make these systems of highest quality, yet at a reasonable price. Stainless dust collectors are great for applications where corrosion is a concern.

Applications:

Food Processing
Pharmaceutical

Overview

Stainless steel Cartridge Collectors

When this dust collection system was designed, maintenance was top of mind. Our cartridge dust collectors are easy to maintain because of the following standard features:

  • Automatic Venturi-Assisted Pulse Filter Cleaning System
  • ACTion-Lock Quick Release Filter Doors
  • Ease of Access to Filters

The A.C.T. systems come standard with our A.C.T. Nano-Elite Nanofiber Cartridges. Our cartridge dust collectors are built to have a low total cost of ownership.  Because our dust collectors take standard filters, the cost of replacement filters is much lower than systems that come with custom sized or shaped filters. It is important to consider filter replacement cost at the time of purchase.

Stainless Steel Baghouse Collectors

When this dust collection system was designed, maintenance was top of mind. Our baghouse dust collectors are easy to maintain because of the following standard features:

  • Automatic Venturi-Assisted Pulse Filter Cleaning System
  • ACTion-Lock Exclusive Tool-Free Bag Replacement
  • Modular Design
  • OSHA Compliant Hand Rail and Caged Access Ladder

The TLM Baghouse features downtime cleaning as well, so the system performs a final pulse-clean cycle after shutdown to ensure maximum dust release and long filter life.

EXTERIOR RAIL CARTRIDGE SUPPORTS FOR UNOBSTRUCTED PULSE

Inside the A.C.T. dust collector, the design continues to work. Two rails support the cartridge filters from the front to the back of the housing, eliminating the need for interior yoke support frame cantilevered from the collector tube sheet. The pulse clean system is unobstructed inside the filter for maximum effectiveness.

AUTOMATIC PULSE CLEAN SYSTEM

As the dust accumulates on the filters, an on-board pressure gauge monitors differential pressure between the clean side and the dirty side of the baghouse. Once a set maximum differential pressure is reached, a solid state timer board activates the cleaning system. The timer board activates an electric solenoid, which opens the diaphragm valve. Compressed air from the manifold on the baghouse is released through the diaphragm valve into the blowpipe above the bag filters. The pressure from the pulse-jet removes the dust buildup by blowing it off outward from the inside of the filter. This all occurs while the system is online for continuous duty operation. The TLM baghouse features downtime cleaning as well, so the system performs a final pulse-clean cycle after shutdown to ensure maximum dust release and long filter life.

PREMIUM GOYEN DIAPHRAGM VALVES AND ELECTRIC SOLENOIDS

Get behind the system, and the working end of the A.C.T. dust collector is equipped for any requirement. Goyen diaphragm valves and electric solenoids are the industry standard. Coupled with Dwyer Instruments digital, solid-state pulse control, complete with on-board pressure switch, you can control on-line, on-demand and downtime cleaning. All this is enclosed in a weatherproof housing for reliable operation.

HEAVY CONSTRUCTION HOUSING WITH VENTURI ASSISTED CLEANING

The main housing of your A.C.T. dust collector is 7 and 10 gauge, all-welded steel. Systems with bolted panel construction can leak over time, so the housing of the A.C.T dust collector is fabricated with continuous, welded seams. Behind every row of two filters is a venturi for maximum performance on the pulse cleaning.

FIT AND FINISH

With hundreds of A.C.T. dust collectors manufactured and installed, every serial number is a statement of quality. Lifting lugs are engineered to the correct lifting angle and formed doors for maximum rigidity, coupled with deep one-piece gaskets, maintain the seal. Angle iron support structure and base plates are pre-punched for easy installation. A fastener kit is included with Grade 5, zinc-plated fasteners. A premium blast, prime and paint process ensures the system will remain in excellent cosmetic condition for many years.

Replacement Filters

OEM Replacement Cartridge Filters

A.C.T. Nano-Elite high efficiency cartridge filters remove 99.9% of the particulate from the air stream. They carry a MERV 15 rating (best in the industry). The cleaned air is then directed to the location of your choice, either returned to the facility or exhausted to the environment.

OEM Replacement Bag Filters

A.C.T. Dust Collectors prides itself in offering the highest quality O.E.M filters for their baghouse  collectors.  Dirty air from the dust source enters the A.C.T. dust collector at the top of the main housing. There are inlets on the roof and optional inlets on the front for the most efficient connection. As air enters the dust collector, dust accumulates on the outside of the filters as air is drawn through the high-efficiency media.
