Flexicon Corp., Bethlehem, Pa., has introduced a vacuum receiver with a pneumatic dump valve for dilute-phase pneumatic conveying systems. The flap-type dump valve can be actuated manually or automatically based on weight gain, elapsed time, or other user-defined parameter.
The stainless-steel receiver has a clamp-together design that allows for quick, tool-free disassembly for filter cleaning and maintenance. Its modular design permits addition of cylinder segments to increase holding volume.
Unlike filter receivers that use multiple small filter elements, this unit has a single, large-diameter filter cartridge for rapid filter changes. Automatic reverse pulse-jet cleaning is provided.
