The Silo Venting filter unit is principally used on sealed silos to filter
the dust laden displaced air generated by the process of filling the silo
by lorry loading tankers. Cleaned air is allowed to discharge back into
the atmosphere, whilst retaining the dust on the outside surface of the
filter elements within the sealed process. Each row of filter cartridges
are continuously cleaned in sequence by a jet of compressed air
released from the header tank controlled by a reverse jet station. The
jet of compressed air rapidly inflates the inside of the filter element,
dislodging the dust cake from the outside surface.
The Silo Venting filter unit uses the same technology developed for the
Cartrijet range of filter units applied successfully on many installations
throughout the UK.
Typical applications include cement and aggregate silos in cement
batching plants, limestone and mineral silos in an animal feed plant and
flour silos in food plants.
Other applications can be applied to this filter unit providing each one
is considered on merit before selection.
