CLEVELAND, OH – September 18, 2014 – Understanding the full process of dust collection systems in a mining or quarry application can be complicated. There are various touch points across the process that help make the whole system function effectively, and for most operations the various components are different from site to site. Aerodyne’s new infographic demonstrates how dust collection solutions fit in these applications.
The infographic shows both material handling valves and a dust collector being used. The dirty air is first pumped into a dust collector, such as a GPC or S Collector, to increase collection efficiency and reduce wear on the baghouse. The collected particulate goes through an Aerodyne Double Dump Valve, which handles bulky material better than rotary valves, and then down the conveyor belt for collection. Simultaneously, the clean air stream flows into the baghouse. Then, in the baghouse, the filtered air is pushed out by a fan and Aerodyne’s Vacu-Valve acts as an airlock for any remaining fine free-flowing dust particles. The remaining collected dust then travels on the conveyor belt to the storage tank, where discharge is controlled by a knife gate valve for manual and pneumatic control.
As identified, each individual piece is critical to the entire dust collection system. A missing piece leaves room for error and lowers the overall efficiency.
