Dust control in grain facilities can present challenges to material handling operations, but PowerCore CPV bin vent collectors help ensure optimised material handling by providing effective filtration

To optimise throughput while maintaining effective dust collection performance, proactive collaboration is needed between the elevator operator, the gernal contractor, and the dust collector manufacturer. Elevator operators who proactively and thoughtfully design point-of-use dust collection typically reliase the following benefits:

Faster Material Transfer

The Torit® PowerCore® CPV collector effectively captures dust while avoiding whole grain being pulled from material transfer points. Operators do not have to constantly adjust damper positions to maintain the  material handling system’s effectiveness even at full dumping rates. With the use of optional items, such as a variable frequency drive and downtime filter cleaning, the limit on the receiving rate will be based solely on the conveying equipment - not on the ability to control dust. The result is increased throughput from the elevator.

Smaller Collectors

Torit® PowerCore® CPV bin vent collectors are almost 70% shorter than other bag-style bin vents and effectively address the frequent challenge of tight space limitations.

Easier Maintenance

Clean-side filter access and fewer, lighter filter packs means faster, easier filter changes without tools,
filter cages or confined space entry.

Less Equipment

Torit® PowerCore® CPV collectors in point-of-use dust collection eliminate dirty-air ducting, balancing
gates, airlocks, filter hoppers, screw conveyors and pneumatic conveying equipment otherwise needed to move collected dust to storage bins. Effective point-of-use dust collection will reduce the installation and maintenance costs of your dust control.

Lower Energy Consumption

An optimized pulse system delivers effective cleaning while minimizing restriction through the collector
for filtered air. As a result, Torit® PowerCore® CPV collectors require up to 40% less horsepower to
operate compared to traditional bag-style collectors. The resulting energy savings alone may actually
pay for the integrated system over the life of the equipment.

Cost Effective

PowerCore® filtration technology means reduced freight and installation costs, fewer filter changeouts,
lower maintenance costs, and reduced emissions and, therefore, reduced housekeeping costs.
