When supplying dry feeders in batches, e.g. from
bags, inadmissible dust formation might occur. As a
result, the working environment is affected by dusty
ventilating air as well as damaging deposits
on adjacent equipment.
External dust formation can be mostly avoided and sucked
off specifically by using a dust collector.
The dust collector is connected by means of the flange
located at the bottom side so that it is stable.
Sealing with elastic packing material avoids dust leakage.
The feeding funnel is closed with an
upward-swingable protective cover. When opening this
cover, the motor of the suction ventilator is
started by means of a switch. A bag to be emptied is
placed in the feeding funnel and is opened. Most
of the produced dust is retained by an internal filter.
If the filter is clogged and if the suction capacity
likely to be insufficient, the adherent dust is removed
from the filter after an inspection cover is opened.
The exhausted air can be carried off via a flange connection
and an appropriate piping.
