Modular Bag Dump Stations for Easy Integration into Existing or New Setups
American Process Systems® Dump Stations are modular in design and easily adaptable to fit into virtually any existing or future setup.
This intelligently engineered dust collection system provides dependable dust control by immediately drawing dust away from the operator. The result is a clean, healthy work environment which complies with regulations set forth by government agencies such as OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) and local AQMD (Air Quality Management Districts).
Efficient dust removal and filtration
No loss of product
Easy, tool-less filter replacement
For Many Applications, Including • Bakery Mixes
• Pigments & Dyestuffs
• Calcium Carbonate
• Carbon Black
Modular Bag Dump Stations for Easy Integration into Existing or New Setups
Easy to remove filter cartridges capture dust particles as small as submicron size and returning all airborne product to the hopper.
Pulse jet air divertors insure efficient cartridge cleaning. Timers control both frequency and duration of air blast.
Internally mounted fan, pulse jet cartridge cleaning divertors and compressed air manifold.
A quiet, specially designed, non-overloading and internally mounted exhaust fan draws ambient air across the removable bar grating where bags or drums are being emptied.
Keeping dust away from the worker Over 1,000 cfm of air produce in excess of 200 fpm capture velocity at the point where the bags are being opened, keeping the dust out of the worker’s environment.
Full Product Recovery Light weight, wide pleat filter cartridges stop the captured dust, then alternating blasts of compressed air pulse it back into the hopper or process below. Only clean, filtered air re-enters the plant. Efficient dust removal means full product recovery, a clean work environment, no make up heating or cooling HVAC air considerations and no ducting to a central bag house.
User Friendly
Low Maintenance
Fast Change Overs
By simply removing the bar grating and air flow baffle, the heart of the dust control system is exposed. A simple swing away cam arrangement allows the operator to quickly and easily replace or substitute the cartridge filters.
Change over for different products is typically accomplished in less than two minutes.
Pulse jet air divertors provide efficient cartridge cleaning. Air is directed downward, spiraling around the inner wall of each cartridge.
Wide pleat filter cartridges are available in PTFE felt, polyester, Gore-Tex Teflon, hygrophobic and oleophobic membrane.
Filtration efficiencies are possible to 99.97% retention on 0.3 microns.
Easy Process Integration for Effective Material Handling and Access for Cleanup The American Process Systems®’ philosophies of “Flexibility in Design” and “Easy Systems Integration” are the basis of our complete line of dust control work stations.
APS Bag Dump Stations have evolved based on specific customer application and process requirements. Examples of several unique designs and system integration applications are shown on these pages.

De-Agglomeration Technology Our Product Conditioner can provide an excellent cost-effective solution for discharging bulk bags containing material that has been solidified, hardened, or agglomerated resuling in troublesome bottlenecks in manufacturing.
Each product conditioner utilizes a “U-shaped” one-piece welded triple bar breaker profile that safely and efficiently returns solid materials to a free-flowing state. A removable perforated screen and frame assembly allows customers to quickly change over to different screen configurations suitable for each application. The double-hinged side doors provide easy access for cleaning.
The product conditioner features a compact footprint and machine guarding for operator safety.
Additional features include:
• Direct drive gear motor
• Optional hand-add station
Product Conditioners (de-lumpers)
Dust Collectors American Process Systems® offers a wide variety of dust collec- tors, these include:
• Free standing and flange mounted • 1, 2 and 4 cartridge designs • 3A Dairy systems.
