Designing a dust collector for your pneumatic conveying system

This article explains how you can configure a dust collector for your pneumatic conveying system to provide efficient, cost-effective dust collection. Three major sections cover these topics for pneumatic conveying systems: common dust collection problems; ways to reduce dust collection a complexity, headroom requirements, and cost; and choosing a baghouse or cartridge dust collector for your pneumatic conveying system. Related information provides tips on cleaning cartridge dust collectors and vacuum pneumatic conveying systems.

In a pneumatic conveying system, a dust collector is located at the system's terminal point and separates material from the conveying gas [typically air]. The material drops into a receiver bin and dust is captured in the dust collector's filter elements. [Editor's note: While this article concentrates on applying baghouse dust collectors, many of the configurations discussed here also work with cartridge dust collectors. The use of cartridge collectors for pneumatic conveying applications is growing. See the section, "A final word: Choosing a baghouse or cartridge dust collector," for advice on selecting a collector for your system.]
