pneuCONVEYOR Bag dump stations (also known as manual dumping stations) collect dust generated when dumping powder and bulk solids from bags, boxes, drums and others containers and return the material to the hopper. The system reduces material waste and eliminates the need to clean a remote dust collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.
All units feature a high velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust away from the operator through the cartridge filters that are sized according to the application.
To operate a bag dump station, the hopper lid is opened, the vacuum fan is activated, and material is dumped through the hopper screen. Airborne dust in the vicinity of the hopper opening is drawn in to the dust collector, protecting workers, preventing plant contamination and reduces material waste.
An automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning system employs timer-activated solenoid valves to release short blasts of compressed plant air inside the cartridge filters, causing dust build-up on the outer filter surface to fall into the hopper. Because the filters are blasted alternately at the timed intervals, operation of the dust collection system is both continuous and efficient. Filters are access easily by removing the interior baffle, and replaced rapidly using quick-disconnect fittings. All manual dumping stations are available mounted on frames with boom and castors for in plant mobility. These systems can reduce material waste and eliminate the need to clean a remote dust collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.
