Former BAE Systems Machinery

This plant is one of several machines acquired during BAE System's reorganisation of their manufacturing facility at Brough, UK.
Their worldwide reputation for quality is reflected in the machinery and maintenance of their manufacturing plant.
Many of these machines include features that are necessary for the manufacture and servicing of high quality aviation and aerospace components,
but can provide a benefit to any industry.


The filter body, with full width opening front access door, is fitted with a multi vee-pocket filter bag secured by a clamping frame at its lower end. The upper end of the bag is suspended from a frame with quick release bungee cords, which can pivot about its central axis. This is in turn linked by a connecting rod to the shaker drive motor, robustly located within the unit top, below the silencer enclosure.

The filter body is mounted directly on the  steel hoppers. The hoppers are fitted with quick release bin mechanism and 3 x rectangular steel Bins of 25 l capacity each. 

The controller units, for remote mounting, are fitted with starters for the fans and motors as well as the built-in timed sequencer to operate the shaker mechanism.

With its large filter area in relationship to the fan size this unit is ideal for lighter dust application that would otherwise blind normal ratio's of filters, on such applications as powder coating, powder tipping and flour mills etc


During normal operation

1. During normal operation, the dust laden air from the plant travels down the supply duct

2. The standard baffle is mounted at the inlet of the filter to break up the air flow and direct the dust downward into the hopper section while protecting the filter media from abrasive dust.

3. The lighter dust collects on the inside of the envelope bag as clean air passes through. Finally, the clean air travels through the air handling fan where it could be returned to the plant or exhausted outdoors.

4. The heavier dust settles in the hopper section where it can be discharged into the metal bins.


1. Each time the filter unit is turned off, there is a 2 minute delay to allow the extraction fan to run down and then the automatic timer activates the shaking motor.

2. The shaft of the shaker motor is attached to a simple cam which, in turn is attached to the shaking mechanism. The shaking mechanism pivots vigorously from side to side which causes the dust to break free from the inside of the filter bag.

3. The dust then falls into the quick release metal bins located at the bottom of the filter unit ready for easy disposal.
