What is a central dust collector?

What is a central dust collector?

A central dust collector is designed to create a negative pressure at a dust source point and pull the fugitive material into the collector where dust is filtered out of the air stream. Dust is then dropped into the hopper off the unit so it can be placed back into the manufacturing process or disposed of properly.

The main components of a central dust collector:

  • Dirty-air chamber
  • Hopper (to house collected material)
  • Hopper discharge valve
  • Filtration media
  • Negative pressure fan/motor assembly
  • Filtration cleaning mechanism
  • Clean-air chamber
  • Fan exhaust

The components of a central dust collector must be engineered properly so contaminated air flows efficiently into the collector, through the collector and clean air is processed out of the unit into the environment.
