Dust Collector

Besser’s DCS-270 Shaker Baghouse, a new model in its line of dust collectors, handles 550 cfm of air volume with a 2.1 air-to-cloth ratio. The model features a 43.5-in.-diameter housing with a unique center column design. The shaker mechanism utilizes a maintenance-free, turbine vibrator that shakes the bags in an elliptic rotation around the collector’s center column. Bags in the DCS-270 undergo automatic cleaning cycles at pre-set time intervals based on production. Consistently timed cleaning cycles controlled by programmable logic circuitry extends bag life and reduces maintenance costs, according to the manufacturer.
