Continuous Operation with Power Filter Cleaning
Sternvent SternPulse SPV dust collectors are the solution for in-plant air quality problems, when the process is continuous or the dust is very fine. Designed with 99.99% efficient vertical pleated filter cartridges that slide in and out on tracks, (except SPV-04),the SternPulse can operate 24/7. Cartridge collectors have many significant advantages over bag style collectors; cartridge filters have higher filtration efficiency, more compact and filters are changed from outside of the dust collector.
Sternvent offers four sizes, 1,000- 5,000 cfm, of the SternPulse SPV with 16, 33 or 55 gallon dust container. The SPV are designed for small to medium size industrial applications, such as pharmaceutical or chemical dusts, powder paint and welding smoke.
Principle of Operation
The dirty air stream enters the inlet which is located in the funnel section, below the filters. The air makes a 90 degree turn upward, causing the heavier particles to fall into the dust container. The fine dust particles are pulled to the outside of the filter cartridges. A dust cake forms on the surface of the filter media, which assists in the filtration. Clean air is able to pass through the filter media & out the fan exhaust. As the dust cake increases and resists the air flow, short bursts of compressed air, from inside the filters forces some of the dust cake to be displaced from the filters and fall into the funnel and airtight dust container. The bursts of compressed air are controlled by a timer.
