A major manufacturer of masonry products has successfully employed a new, specially adapted pulse-jet dust collector from Sly Inc. The 40,000 ACFM collector vents a sand and aggregate fluid bed dryer operating at 140°F. Inlet loading for the collector is a demanding 15,000 lb/hr. with outlet emissions of .02 gr/cu ft.
The Sly Model STJ-3215-10 collector features a high side inlet and large drop-out section, slowing velocity to remove heavy particulate before it is filtered by the collector’s 16-oz polyester filter bags. Because the dryer being vented occasionally is fired by high sulfur fuel oil, special design considerations were made. The collector has a stainless steel tube sheet, internal epoxy coating and 3 in. of fiberglass insulation to address potential corrosion.
Sly furnished inlet duct, outlet duct, stack, supports, access platforms, screw conveyor, and exhaust fan for the project.
Sly will exhibit May 8–10 at the Powder Show at the Donald Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL.
