A company in FL that specializes in manufacturing command and communication vehicles was in need of dust collection system. The facility was going to be purchasing a CNC router machine from its sister company and it would require a dust collector to work with it. The CNC would be producing metal dust and the unit would require 1300 CFM. The company reached out to Aerodyne for suggestions on products that would fit its needs.
Aerodyne salesman Dan suggested the company use the GPC in tandem with the Vacu-Valve for this process. The GPC dust collector is a compact high efficiency cyclone dust collector. It has several distinct advantages over common high-efficiency cyclone dust collectors. The spiral inlet of the GPC directs the dirty gas stream toward the ground plate and hopper of the collector. Coupled with the compact size of the collectors, this gives the GPC the ability to be installed horizontally with virtually no effect on the collection efficiency. This cyclonic dust collector can improve any dust collection system.
The open-construction of the Platypus Vacu-Valve trickle valves is the most economical way to manage dust discharged from bag filters or cyclones under negative pressure. The fitted duckbill sleeve adjusts to the desired vacuum and material is continuously discharged. It requires no controls, lubrication or power supply and easily handles abrasive materials. This trickle valve can be used in higher temperature applications as well. The Vacu-Valve® dust discharge trickle valve is available at a fraction of the cost of the rotary airlock valves it replaces. Additionally, there are multiple duck bill sleeve options available to better suit a wide variety of applications.
