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."

Your A.C.T. dust collector comes standard with industry-best A.C.T Nano-Elite media. These feature a MERV 15 efficiency rating for effective collection of extremely fine dust, smoke and fume, removing 99.9% of particulate from the air. The cleaned air is then directed to the location of your choice: either returned to your facility or exhausted to the environment.


The patented door design of A.C.T. dust collectors is simple, fast and secure. The cast aluminum handle locks the door shut against the dust collector. The heavy-duty cross-rod and brackets on the dust collector and cam are all stainless steel. Knobs, hinges, springs, threads and wasted time are eliminated. Lift the handle and door comes off. Set the cross-rod in the brackets, lower the handle and it's locked securely.  Click Here to watch the video.

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.

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.

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.

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.
