Like all Astec products, the baghouse is constructed of high quality materials to stand up to the demands of high production. An Astec baghouse also makes maintenance easy with well thought out access doors.
You Get More With Astec
The extra features you get with Astec make a real difference because they reduce maintenance and operating concerns and they improve efficiency.
Wear-sides of duct turns are made with 360 Brinell AR (abrasion resistant steel). Stiffeners strengthen baghouse walls and prevent flexing. Astec baghouses resist corrosion thanks to epoxy-coating on the inner surfaces of the baghouse and primary dust collector and plenum doors fabricated of stainless steel. Exhaust fan, motors and drives ship pre-assembled. All bags, blow pipes, manifolds, valves and solenoids are installed at the factory, saving you considerable time at setup.
Less Maintenance Time And Cost
Key parts of the baghouse are simple to access and service.
Caged ladders lead to the top of the baghouse. Handrails are installed all around. Stainless steel lift-off covers let you easily reach bags. Snap-in bags are simple to change.
The dust screw on an Astec baghouse features a large screw shaft design with a reduced number of hanger bearings. On some Astec models the hanger bearings have been completely eliminated.
The hanger bearings on the longer dust screws are lubricated, long-wearing and operate quietly. Screws and bearings are conveniently reached through ground-level access doors at each bearing.
Single-hopper baghouses have clean out plugs at the bottom of the hopper. In the unlikely event of a blockage at the screw conveyor, these plugs can be removed and dust can be evacuated manually.
Hopper screw drive motors are mounted externally and are fully accessible from the ground.
