Mechanical Dust Collector

Mechanical Dust Collectors are having low initial and operating cost and fairly high dust separation efficiency (85-90%) for coarse particles (10 microns and above) only. These also act as pre-separator for achieving fairly high efficiency for air/gas with high initial dust concentration with more efficient final collectors downstream. Depending on volume of gas to be handled and required efficiency, these may be either single cyclone or group of cyclones or small diameter cyclone elements, known as Multi-cyclones. The later are made of cast iron and fitted with inlet guide vanes. The dust particles are separated from air stream by centrifugal force. These are available in a wide variety of designs, dust collection efficiencies and materials of construction and can be installed in any combination of units to suit the application.
