Silo Venting Filters are specifically designed to vent silos filled with powdered products primarily from road tankers.

Silo venting filters are a specific type of filter that will separate the product from the air during the conveying period and during the air surge at the end of the filling cycle.

The filter is self-cleaning, returning product back into the silo via an automatic reverse pulse compressed air cleaning system.

A Dustcheck Silovent filter utilises ‘conical’ filter technology to maximise cleaning efficiency and extend filter life. The units comply with environmental emission standards, have a rugged weatherproof construction and are designed for safe and simple maintenance.

The design also has the minimum of removable parts and are available in galvanized or stainless steel construction, with 1bar P-red ATEX rated as standard and 2bar available as an option. We also offer fan assisted versions.

Why Dustcheck?

Our Solution

Some products will be hazardous to health, some will be toxic, and others may be explosive. Whatever your product we will have a solution that will suit your process. We can also select a specific media (material) to ensure it can handle the characteristics of your dust (be it fine, sticky, dense, heavy, etc).

Material to suit the job

Our filters are designed and built by us (and only us) meaning we can offer an array of materials and finishes to meet your needs. Our cartridge elements offer advantages of compact design, higher efficiency and have a higher surface area per element compared with bag filters. The cartridge element fixing method also makes for faster and easier maintenance.

Cartridge elements allow us to design much more compact machines – offering savings of up to 50% in footprint area which can be a major advantage on congested silo roof tops where space is at a premium.

Each type of filter element has its own strengths and we would work with you to ensure the correct solution.

Save on ‘whole of life’ costs

Dustcheck’s products save you money, energy and time. Our efficient filters will help cut down on housekeeping tasks as your workspace will be dust free. Our Differential Pressure Controllers can automatically select when filters are cleaned to save you money on compressed air usage and their design makes maintenance hassle free and fast – saving you production time and saving you money.
