Cyclone Dust Collectors
Cyclone dust collectors are free standing and may be located anywhere between the pump filter and the conveying system. Their primary purpose is to protect a system vacuum pump from damage by carryover dust and fines. Usually, there is one cyclone per system pump.
A good cyclone dust collector will pay for itself many times over. If designed and built properly, the cyclonic action will it will remove up to 99% of carry over fines that are drawn towards, and can damage, the central pump in a vacuum conveying system.
There are no moving parts and no bulky canister filters to clean. The fines can be easily emptied from a sealed dust collection pan under the cyclone.
Cyclone filters are sized to match the conveying line diameter and the air volume produced by the system vacuum pump.
