Vessel Venting Filters are filters for mounting on vessels. Specifically, vessels which are fed, either under gravity or from a form of mechanical conveyor, with dry powders causing air displacement.

Vessel Venting Filters allow the displaced air to flow through the filter, separating the particulate to allow clean air to be vented. The filtered particulate is returned to the vessel via an automatic reverse jet cleaning system, allowing continuous venting.

The Vessel Venting Filter range are compact units, utilising our conical cartridge technology and are designed to vent small air volumes, efficiently replacing the old ‘floppy sock’. They can also be used effectively for the venting of rotary valves on positive pressure pneumatic conveying systems.

Why Dustcheck?

Our Solution

The Dustcheck Vessel Venting Filter range has evolved over 40 years and is installed in thousands of projects. Our technical team are continually looking at specifications and ensuring our products are the best they can be.

Dust can be created by processing any material. Some will be hazardous to health, some will be toxic, and others may be explosive. Whatever the dust type, and no matter how much dust you have, we will have a solution that will fit your process.

We can supply our filters at a variety of sizes, meaning we can filter any dust load. The type of dust you’re generating will require 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

Each Filter Unit can be adapted in size to fit the planning-in space you have available. Our Filters are Each Filter Unit can be adapted in size to fit the planning-in space you have available. 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. Rugged, painted carbon steel is our design standard but we can also offer stainless steel, galvanized and electro plating for weatherproof options and we can offer a number of paint finishes including marine standard.

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. This can be a significant advantage in congested production environments.

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 range 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.
