The pulse jet style baghouse requires minimal maintenance. Well thought out features like internally mounted pulse solenoids ensure reliable performance.
Pulse Jet Baghouse
The pulse jet baghouse with primary collector modules ship with foundations in place. Filter bag modules are installed on top, and an airtight seal is created between top and bottom sections. Exhaust fan inlet duct, fan base and stack are pre-assembled and fitted to the baghouse. Elbows lined with abrasion resistant steel guarantee collection efficiency. Pulse valves are mounted internally to promote consistent performance by preventing freeze-up. M-Pack baghouse capacities start at 34,000 cfm, depending on the plant. Astec offers a choice of primary collectors: either an inertial separator or a cyclone.
The M-Pack foundations are heavy-duty. They provide plenty of load-bearing surface to support the facility components.
The cold feed unit, recycle bins, Double Barrel® drum mixer and baghouse have thick structural tubes under each module leg. Steel skid foundations are used under the exhaust stack end of the baghouse. The scalping screen is supported by skid-type foundations.
If you ever have to move to another site, most loads fit on lowboy type trailers, and the built-in foundations go with them.
Optional Blue Smoke Package
Astec offers complete systems to capture and dispose of blue smoke. Powerful fans route the hydrocarbon emissions either to the drum burner for incineration or to a fiberbed filter type collection unit. Silo top and loadout area systems are available.
