Hycontrol's Hyvent dust collector and filter unit is specifically designed to vent silos during the filling process without allowing valuable powdered product to escape. Product is filtered from the air during both the conveying period and the air surge at the end of the cycle. The filter is self-maintaining, returning product back into the silo via an automatic reverse-jet pulse cleaning system which utilises compressed air.
This filter unit utilises the latest technology in the form of conical-shaped filter design. This provides outstanding cleaning efficiency while enabling maximum airflow through the unit, with the added benefit of increasing the operational lifespan of the cartridges. The filter unit itself has a rugged weatherproof construction and is built for safe and simple maintenance.
Hyvent has been designed according to the latest guidance from the Mineral Products Association (MPA), and to meet HSE guidelines on the prevention of storage silo over–pressurisation during deliveries. It complies fully with current environmental emission standards and is capable of filtering all types of powders. Hyvent forms an integral component of Hycontrol’s award-winning, advanced SHIELD silo protection system, providing the ultimate defence against the dangers of overfilling and over-pressurisation in powder silos.
CONICAL FILTER ADVANTAGES
The conical cartridges utilised in the Hyvent unit offer many advantages over traditional cylindrical cartridge or bag filters due to their compact design, higher filtration efficiency and superior pre-separation of dusts. The tapered shape allows increasing separation from top to bottom between the filter elements inside the unit resulting in reduced up-stream air velocities, increased pre-separation and lower dust re-entrainment.
The inner core of the filter elements are also tapered, enhancing the effectiveness of the compressed air jet and giving a more even clean over the length of the cartridge.
