This 2500 cfm dust collector works well with our Model J & Abrasive Recovery System package.
The cartridge dust collector is an excellent choice to replace the common bag-house or dust bag type
collector and can be used to collect almost any dry, fine dust particulates. The cartridge offers a large amount of
cleaning filter material in a very compact area. Cartridge dust collectors take up much less space than bag house
collectors and offer an exceptional filtration efficiency of 99.7% against 1/2 micron particles. This allows for in
house venting in most applications that do not produce noxious or poisonous gases. A cartridge will often deliver
30 times the filtration efficiency of the common dust bag.
The collector was designed with a 12 inch diameter, abrasive resistant, inlet to extend the filter life. The
filters are cleaned with a reverse pulse of compressed air as necessary. The reverse pulse is
manually actuated with one of two 1 ╝ inch ball valves located on the front of the unit. Pulse cleaning can be
performed at any time during operation to increase air flow or after the system is shut down. This unit is designed
to deliver optimal performance when dust cake levels of 40-80-120 pounds are accumulated in between pulse
cleaning intervals. It is equipped with an acoustical dampening package that will meet or exceed all noise level
requirements per OSHA specifications.
The vertical placement of filters allow for the best possible release and removal of dust from the pleated
filters with one reverse pulse. Two filters are cleaned at a time. It has four 99.7 % efficient cartridges that
contain 904 square feet of total cleaning surface area. Each 26 inch long and 12.75 inch diameter filter cartridge
has pleats that are 2.375 inches deep. The center opening of the filter is 8 inches in diameter and is open on both
ends before installation.
Currently it is offered with a 5 hp (208v - 230v / 460v) 3 phase TEFC motor as standard equipment (14 -
12 / 6 amps). It is also available with Csa or EU certified motor and voltages as required. The approx. dimension
of this collector is 11 ft. high, 4 ft. wide and 4 ft. deep. It comes with a barrel kit for 55 gallon drum disposal.
This unit is equipped with the VFD electrical package that includes the following:
1. Soft motor starting: The amperage draw will not exceed the motor name plate rated amperes at any
time. This reduces the initial cost of copper wiring because it is no longer necessary to consider the initial startup
load. The initial startup requirements may exceed 5 times the rated name plate amperes when hard starting a
variable torque application like high speed impellers. This requires over sizing of electrical wiring, fuses and
breakers to prevent motor starvation and premature failure of electrical components on startup.
2. On-Off Switch: Conveniently located on the dust collector, this is a simple 24 volt relay loop that
engages the variable frequency drive with the flick of a switch. After the start command is triggered the motor will
ramp to maximum velocity over ~ 20 seconds. When the stop command is received the unit will again decelerate
over ~ 90 seconds and come to a complete stop.
3. Thermal Motor Protection: The motor drive will constantly monitor the motor and the drive itself for any
unusual spike in temperature throughout. If the temperature rises above acceptable parameters the drive will
default and shutdown before any damage to the unit is sustained.
Motor Fault and Report Monitoring: The motor drive is capable of displaying motor torque, hours of operation,
actual amperage draw, percentage of motor capacity used, percentage of drive capacity used, the motor frequency
in hertz, delivered line voltage and several other programmable LED display readouts. Factory settings are always
in hertz frequency unless specified otherwise.
4. Automatic Load Compensation Controls: The motor drive is programmed to compensate for changing
load conditions. These conditions include but are not limited to extended length or reduced diameter of piping,
blast gates and other restrictions in the air lines, atmospheric humidity, temperature and altitude adjustments, filter
cartridge dust cake levels, and power supply brownout or over current conditions. Without this electrical package
the motor will simply rotate at 60 hertz- 3450 rpm. If any one or more of the conditions listed above exist then the
rated cfm of the unit will be reduced as a result. Then the only way to increase the cfm is to correct whatever
condition(s) exist. But with this electrical package these conditions are corrected automatically through
direct motor communication with the drive system. As a result, if the cfm should fall below rated levels, the motor
drive will increase the motor speed to correct for this condition. The speed of the motor will continue to increase
until 150% of the rated water column vacuum is achieved to restore air flow and maintain 100% load on the
motor. The LED display will show this reading in real time with .1 hertz accuracy. This reading can also be used as
a baseline to determine the most effective time to pulse the filters. We highly recommend the use of this system
when possible. This can only be used when unit is placed inside as the controller has a NEMA 1 electrical rating.
For outdoor placement of dust collector unit, the inverter drive must be relocated to a position inside the building.
The VFD electrical package is included on this unit. Contact us with any questions you may have about
your specific applications. This unit is generally in stock and ready for immediate shipment pending final electrical
connections per customer specification.
Consolidated Stripping offers a 1 year warranty against defect in workmanship or materials. They also offer
an 85% return of the purchase price, excluding freight, for the return of the collector within 60 days after receipt of
delivery if this unit fails to perform as described.
