The use of silo filters is imperative when storing powdery bulk materials. Our silo filters have been specially designed for pneumatic filling by silo vehicles. The filter elements are cleaned with blasts of compressed air so that the full filter surface is available at all times.
For sensitive applications, such as the manufacture of plastic products in medical technology or the food industry, the silo filter is placed on a lower part next to the silo. A vent pipe guides the conveying air to the silo filter while the silo vehicle is being filled. The primary purpose, however, is to prevent contamination of the bulk material. Dedusting the conveying air is secondary.
