Vertical Cartridge Filter (VCF) for Industrial Dust Collection

The Schenck Process Vertical Cartridge Filter (VCF) is a pulse jet filter designed to handle medium to high air volumes for industrial dust removal.

It is typically used as a nuisance dust collector in applications with light dust loads and a high volume of air flow. An easy to-use cartridge clamp system on the hinged front doors of the baghouse provides easy access to and rapid replacement of the filter media. This minimizes downtime during scheduled maintenance decreasing overall cost of operation.

The filter is equipped with a smart timer, which includes an on-board sensor that reads the pressure drop across the filtering elements for on-demand cleaning. This results in reduced compressed air consumption and greater cartridge life.

The standard radial inlet allows for excellent material separation during moderate air volume applications while the optional high entry inlet with a pre-separation chamber is designed for optimal performance in high volume systems. The chamber separates the largest powder particles safeguarding the media from excess loads of pollutants and guaranteeing longer media life.

A robust design adds to the overall stability of the filter. Each unit is constructed with reinforced carbon steel that is rated for 6.4 psi Pred. The VCF has also been Pred validated through a full scale third party explosion test. Explosion mitigation devices are also available with the VCF.
