Industrial Dust Collector Reduces Dust Dangers in Grain, Seed and Feed Processing

Industrial Dust Collector Reduces Dust Dangers in Grain, Seed and Feed Processing
Handling and milling grain, seed and feed are occupational hazards that expose workers to dust-related dangers like respiratory injury and inhalation of allergens.

In addition, most food dust is combustible, so particles in the air and on surfaces can cause fire and explosion. To help agricultural and food processing facilities reduce these risks, Camfil APC offers the Gold Series X-Flo (GSX) industrial dust collection system. 

The GSX dust collection system safely collects airborne food particles to provide cleaner air to breathe, a cleaner work environment, and a significantly reduced risk of combustible dust incidents. It is ideal for facilities that handle corn, oats, wheat, barley, sunflower seeds, rice, cotton seeds, and soybeans, to name a few.

To prevent worker exposure to airborne contaminants and prevent combustible dust from traveling throughout the facility, the GSX system collects fine, fibrous, and heavy dust loads. It can capture grain, feed, and seed dust at the source.

The GSX system helps facilities exceed OSHA indoor air quality standards. When equipped with a Camfil explosion vent, the system offers the highest combustible dust explosion protection in accordance with NFPA standards. Other explosion protection options are available including isolation valves, integrated safety monitoring filters, and fire-retardant filter cartridges.

GSX dust collectors are designed in individual modules that handle airflows up to 6,000 cfm using four Gold Cone™ X-Flo (GCX) filter cartridges, which contain more pleated media to move more air and process more dust without increasing the collector’s overall footprint. The collector creates a more uniform airflow, which extends the life of the filters and uses less compressed air. They are available with filtration efficiencies up to MERV 16 per ASHRAE 52.2:2017.

The GCX filter cartridges feature specially designed inner cones with more downward-facing media than traditional filters. These cones evenly distribute the pulsed air along the outer pack of the filter and through the inner cone, ejecting more dust straight into the hopper. The result is a more thorough cleaning with each pulse, and the vertical filters are cleaner, safer, and easier to change out.
