We are the UK’s leading manufacturer of quality industrial dust collectors and industrial air filtration systems.
We can provide effective bespoke solutions to all of your dust control and containment requirements through clever innovative design and efficient manufacture and installation.
The Compact 120 Series (SFKJ) is an extremely compact and versatile reverse jet cleaning dust collector, using our well proven 120mm conical cartridge technology. It is capable of handling high dust loads and can offer technical advantages and a cost effective solution to mechanical shake type solutions. Available with a wide range of options, it can be tailored to suit any requirements.
Silo Venting Filter Range – Fan and Non Fan Assisted: The Silovent Series (SFJC-VU) is a high quality, cost effective reverse jet cleaning venting filter designed specifically for the venting of bulk storage silos being filled pneumatically via a road tanker or land based blower unit. The weatherproof, rugged carbon steel, galvanized and electro plated construction makes the unit virtually maintenance free. It includes a simple element retaining method with no removable parts for easy and safe filter removal via a hinged weathercowl complete with retaining latch. The compact design can also use the 160mm two piece conical cartridge to reduce replacement costs. It is extremely competitively priced and where suitable, it can also be applied to other venting type applications.
In just over 2 weeks, Dustcheck managed to complete our biggest ever project – supplying, delivering and installing fume extraction and filtration systems for Goodwin Steel Castings Limited. Now you can get full access behind-the-scenes as our engineers bring the systems to life.
The Ventmatic 120 Series Rotary Valve Venting Filter Range is a compact carbon steel painted, twin cartridge reverse jet cleaning venting filter with optional integral fan. It is designed primarily for rotary valve venting applications, but is also equally well suited for other low duty venting applications. Its two valve cleaning system ensures 50% ‘free’ vent area during cleaning and can therefore be used in applications where ‘on-line’ cleaning (cleaning during operation) is required, or where pressurisation of the filter chamber and associated discharge equipment could cause other process problems. The optional fan gives ‘forced aspiration’ to the unit to negate positive pressure in the filter chamber.

Why are our Dustcheck dust filter cartridges conical in shape? • They give better cleaning efficiency
• You can maintain low differential pressure and maintain extraction rates
• Your unit will require less maintenance
• You extend the life of your cartridges
• The overall ‘whole of life’ cost is lower Watch our one-minute animation and find out how they work.

There has been a long held belief that small vessels contain sufficient openings to provide adequate relief to a dust explosion that initiates from within the vessel itself. A statement alluding to this was contained in the Solids Handling and Process Association’s (SHAPA) generated publication — “Practical Guidance for Suppliers and Operators of Solids Handling Equipment for Potentially Explosive Dusts”. The publication states:- “The risk of a damaging explosive event from an igniting dust cloud decreases if the enclosed volume is small. In the case of a vessel or housing with a through flow of air, a dust collector for example, the air inlet and outlet would afford sufficient explosion relief if required. Furthermore, the loss of heat from flames to the walls would tend to minimise the consequences of an internal explosion. In general terms, if the vessel has an enclosed volume of about 0.5 m3 or less, it would not need to be specially protected from the effects of a dust explosion and would therefore not need certification with reference to ATEX.” This however does not appear to have any scientific basis and is not in line with current guidance on explosion vent sizing where the equations provided in the Dust explosion venting protective systems standards such as EN14491 and VDI 3673 provide guidance on vessels starting at 0.1 m3. In order to verify if the statement is founded, the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) at Buxton have initiated a program of work on several different pieces of equipment. Dustcheck are pleased to be supporting this program of work where a SFKJ6-1-06, having a dirty side volume of just 0.47 m3, has been supplied. Dustcheck has always complied with the state of the art knowledge and legislation, and provided explosion protection, where it is justified, on filter units with volumes above 0.1 m3. We will continue to follow this approach since it is yet too early to alter as test work is ongoing and results and findings have yet to be published — we do however eagerly await the opportunity to strengthen our knowledge and remain at the leading edge of explosion protection within the dust control field.
