Torit / Wheelabrator 12 Cartridge, reverse pulse dust extractor with a powerful 18.5kW floor mounted fan.

The reverse pulse system maintains optimum filter efficiency by automatically back washing the filter elements with a 90 psi high pressure jet of compressed air whilst the plant is still running removing the contaminants and depositing them quickly into the waste collection hoppers whereby they are held until released for waste collection.

Cartridge Type Dust Control Plant with Separate Floor Mounted Centrifugal Extraction Fan

The dust collector is used for the collection of airborne dust and particulate. Whether in answer to the problem of air pollution, or as part of a manufacturing process, this dust collector provides highly efficient, continuous, on-line dust collection.

During normal operation, contaminated air enters the dust collector through the top inlet area and passes down and through the filter elements. Dust is collected on the outside surface of the filter elements.

The clean, filtered air flows through the centre of the filter elements into the clean air plenum, where it exits through the clean air outlet.

Filter elements are cleaned automatically and sequentially. The result is that only one filter element may be off-line for cleaning at any given time.

During the filter cleaning purge, the solid state timer energises a solenoid valve, causing the corresponding diaphragm valve to send a pulse of compressed air through the filter (from the inside outward), removing the collected contaminants from the outside surfaces of the filter. The dust falls into the hopper and then into the dust storage container.

How do Dust Extractors Work?

Dust collection systems work in a variety of different ways but all have general principles in common. They draw process dust and particulates from the air through a filter that first captures and separates the matter, and then discharges decontaminated air back into the workplace or environment.

Dust extractors are used in many different and varied industries and so different demands are made of them; however all have common components such as a blower (or fan), dust filter, filter cleaning system, dust container and dust removal system.

Five common types of dust collection equipment are fabric filter baghouses, inertial separators (like mechanical cyclones), cartridge collectors, wet scrubbers, and electrostatic precipitators.

What are Cartridge Dust Collectors?

Cartridge Dust Collectors a type of filter unit which is predominantly used in environments where space is at a premium. They can often maintain airflows which remain comparable to larger baghouse units.

Cartridge units provide larger fabric filter areas into a smaller place, use less filters and can be changed from the outside of the extractor, rather than having to access the unit internally, thus reducing filter replacement times and less environmental contamination issues for maintenance staff.

They are ideal for commercial and industrial environments, whose processes produce very fine-to- moderate dust-like powders, metalworking, woodworking, fume collection, thermal spraying, among other processes.

What are Reverse Pulse Jet Dust Collectors?

Reverse Pulse Jet Dust Collectors use a jet of air to clean dust from the collector's filters. Commonly used in pleated filter cartridge units, the filters are cleaned by a series of rapid, high-pressure air jets which sends a blast or shock of air through the reverse side of the filters. In effect this shakes the collected dust from the filters into the dust collection system. The rapid reverse pulse of air allows for continuous operation with the fan running and has high collection efficiencies.

Reverse Pulse Jet Dust Collectors are the most common type of industrial dust collectors and can handle a wide range of temperatures and pressures. They are commonly used in manufacturing environments where large volumes of solids are processed, such as mineral production, food processing and metal fabrication industries.

A control unit sets the variables such as time duration between pulses, length of pulse and pressure.
