To overcome the maintenance problems and operating costs of centralized dust control systems, Martin Engineering recommends the use of insertable air cleaners on conveyor transfer points and recently introduced an updated version of its insertable air cleaner.

The Air Cleaner is automatic, self-cleaning and was designed to remove dust from the air in conveyor loading and transfer points, silo vents, bucket elevators and screens and thereby minimizing the negative consequences of airborne dust and spillage. The automated “reverse jet” cleaning sequence facilitates continuous operation, keeping filters working effectively with a minimum of compressed air. According to the manufacturer, installation of insertable air cleaners will eliminate many of the problems seen with central “baghouse” collection systems, including long runs of ducting, large enclosures, maintenance difficulties and high power consumption. There is no large fan, no ductwork and no central bag house. Insertable filters are integrated into the transfer point enclosure, where they can easily return material to the conveying system.
