Modular cartridge bin vent

February 6, 2013

modular cartridge bin vent k-tronK-Tron’s modular cartridge bin vent provides air filtration of fine airborne particles from within a storage tank and releases clean air to the atmosphere. While material is pneumatically conveyed into a storage tank, fine particles and air are separated by the unit’s large cartridge filter. Reverse jet cleaning from a compressed air accumulator pulses the filter, dislodging any fines and returning them to the storage tank. Standard materials of construction include carbon-steel enamel coating or SS material contact areas. Mounting on a standard 20-in. diameter tank deck, the modular unit is easy to install. The cartridge filter hangs vertically and has shallow, open pleats for efficient dust release.
