December 8, 2008

The new collector with walk-in plenum filters dust from belt conveyors and bagging lines. Air volume is 4000 ACFM with an air-to-cloth ratio of 3.9:1. Explosion relief vents, grounded filter bags and an explosion suppression isolation system on the inlet ductwork were provided to meet current NFPA 68 and 69 codes. The Sly TubeJet CTR collector is a cylindrical design for high pressure or high vacuum applications. All-welded construction permits standard vacuum/pressure ranging from ±20" WG to ±17" Hg. with designs available from full vacuum to ASME coded vessels to 50 psig. Round housing makes interior cleaning easy, and minimizes cold spots in high heat applications. The company manufactures a full range of wet, dry and combination wet/dry collection systems designed to meet any air pollution code. A system can be configured employing a variety of technologies to meet any user’s specific requirements. Customized equipment can be engineered to service nearly any size or collection need.
