Our Industrial Dust Control System Takes Workplace Safety to the Next Level
The Aerodyne SplitStream™ is a counter cyclonic dust collector that has no major moving components and is capable of handling a wide range of materials, while requiring minimal maintenance. Particulate that is granular, fibrous, sticky, or hydroscopic, with process temperatures ranging from -20° F to 700° F, can be separated and collected for air pollution control or reclamation. The unique counter cyclonic design element of the SplitStream™ Dust Collector insures that a minimal amount of particulate comes in contact with the interior walls. This eliminates excessive wear and enables the collection of abrasive particulate. The cyclone can be configured vertically or horizontally, providing easy installation in existing facilities or new locations.
GPC CYCLONE DUST COLLECTOR
The Aerodyne GPC Cyclone Dust Collector represents an improvement over conventional high-efficiency cyclones. Cyclonic action is initiated by a sloped spiral inlet and vortex reversal is accomplished by the use of a solid ground plate. The unique design of the GPC Cyclone Dust Collector provides a high-efficiency, compact unit that is available in horizontal or vertical configurations.
- High efficiency and Compact Size Horizontal or
- vertical configurations which is ideal for limited spaces
Unlike conventional cyclones, the GPC Dust Collector does not require a long, tapered body for effective dust separation. This compact cyclone dust collector is ideal for plants and workshops with limited floor space or limited overhead clearance.
Since 1947, Aerodyne has been providing premier industrial dry material handling valves and dust collector vales. These valves are capable of handling materials from a variety of applications such as dust from sand, rock, foodstuffs, wood, glass, chemicals and more. Browse our products below to find out which dust collector valve is right for you. Whether it is a rotary valve, trickle valve, knife gate valve, slide gate valve or double dump valve, we are your material handling and air pollution control experts.
Aerodyne Dust Collector Valves
Aerodyne Dust Collector Valves
The open-construction Platypus and the closed-construction Armadillo trickle valves are the most economical ways to manage dust discharged from bag filters or cyclones under negative pressure. The fitted duckbill sleeve adjusts to the desired vacuum and material is continuously discharged.
Aerodyne Gator Gate™ Double-Dump Valve
The GatorGate Double-Dump valve feeds and moves chunky or fibrous material that would jam ordinary rotary valves and is durable enough to move abrasive material.
Aerodyne High Capacity Rhino Rotary "R" Valve™
The Aerodyne High Capacity Rhino Rotary "R" Valve is designed for continuous discharge of dry, free-flowing, low-abrasive solids in gravity flow or low-pressure systems.
Aerodyne Rhino Rotary "H" Valve™
The Aerodyne Rhino Rotary "H" Valve's cast iron construction and tight tolerances provide exceptional performance in handling highly-abrasive materials when compared to competing cast valves.
Knife Gate Valve
A knife gate valve is used to control flow in a bulk-material handling system, either in the line of flow or at the point of discharge.
Aerodyne StopTight® Slide Gate Valve
A knife gate valve is used to control flow in a bulk-material handling system, either in the line of flow or at the point of discharge. Using a linear motion, a blade advances until the passage is closed, or it withdraws until the passage is open.
COUNTER CYCLONIC COLLECTION: How it works
Aerodyne dust collection systems consist of fabric filter bags, a cyclonic dust collector, or combination of the two. In cyclone collection, air laden with particulate is made to spin inside a conical chamber. Centrifugal force causes particulate to move to the walls of the chamber where it gains inertia. Then gravity pulls the particulate into a hopper for dust collection. This is called cyclonic separation. Sometimes multiple cyclones are used with a common inlet and outlet. Counter cyclonic dust collection is a cyclone with a secondary air stream that reduces wear on the cyclone walls and increases efficiency. Some other cyclones use a ground plate to reverse the vortex and increase efficiency that way. A cyclone-based dust collection system requires little maintenance because it has no filters to replace and no moving parts except for the blower. Filter media dust collectors such as cartridge filters and bag houses are usually able to capture fine, light particles easier than cyclones, however cyclones are often used upstream of filters as a pre-treatment, to remove the majority of dust and extend the service life of filters.

CAMFIL Air Pollution Control Dust Collectors
The Farr Gold Series® cartridge dust and fume collector combines enhanced performance with ease of service while cleaning the work environment of irritating dust and fumes. The Farr Gold Series is used by thousands of factories for industrial ventilation and product recovery applications including:
Capture Dust from All Types of Blasting:
- Wheel blasters
- Air blasters
- Cabinet blasters
- Blasting rooms
- Plastic media blasting
- Abrasive blasting
- Peening Special considerations for:
- Aluminum blasting
- Blasting with silica sand
Benefits of the Farr Gold Series
Vertically arranged cartridges have the ability to handle heavy grain loadings and handle abrasive dusts better than horizontally arranged cartridges. Vertical cartridges shed all the metal particulate - vs. horizontal filters which allow the metal to build on top of the filter. High entry cross flow inlet eliminates upward can velocities that can hold fine powder up in the filters reducing re-entrainment of the fine particles. The robust construction of the Farr Gold Series holds up well in a very abrasive environment. Our abrasion resistant inlet configuration knocks most of the dust into the hopper before it gets to the cartridges.

THE ACT GROUP® Dust Bags
THE ACT GROUP® Dust Bags provide passive relief for positive air pressure produced at belt conveyor loading zones, preventing the escape of airborne dust. Properly applied, these bags can eliminate the need for "Bughouse" Dust Collection systems.
Installed in the conveyor cover before the end of the transfer point's skirted area, THE ACT GROUP® DUST Bags vent air while collecting the dust from that air. When positive air pressure from material flow stops, THE ACT GROUP® Dust Bags collapse, dislodging collected material back onto the conveyor belt.
THE ACT GROUP® DUST Bag System is available with a Standard Bag or a Static Dissipating Bag for use in explosive environments.
Standard MARTIN ® Dust Bag
Standard MARTIN® Dust Bags provide durable performance and effective dust control without needing a "bughouse" dust collector.
Static-Dissipating MARTIN® Dust Bag
Designed for use in combustible environments, this dust bag instantly dissipates static charges. The felt like filter media is interwoven with carbonized fibers. Any static charge is carried to ground without generating a spark. MARTIN® Static Dissipating Dust Bags have low electrical resistance in keeping with DIN Standard.
