Silo Vacuum System Provides Extreme Filtration

June 2, 2014

The FA2000 Series silo vacuum provides extreme filtration and continuous-duty operation. Featuring an oversized 520-sq-ft pleated filter cartridge and vacuum producers ranging from 7.5 to 30 hp, this stationary unit provides powerful continuous-duty operation and is ideal for use as a central vacuum system and removing large quantities of fine dust. It uses reverse-pulse filter technology to automatically clean filter cartridges and prevent clogging, as well as a rotary airlock for continuous discharge into a 55-gal drum. Its sound-suppressed vacuum producers can be remotely mounted anywhere for custom installation. A fully grounded and sealed design prevents static build-up. The FA2000 Series silos’ reinforced housing, along with optional side or top discharge explosion vents with flame quenchers, meet and exceed NFPA compliance for applications working with combustible dust. Other options include HEPA filtration and alternative containment solutions such as Super Sack bulk bag frames and tipping containers.
