DCE 2000 Series Dust Collectors

Description and range

The DCE 2000 is an automatic reverse-jet cleaned, type of dust collector, designed to handle large quantities of dust-laden air, and is capable of continuous operation over extended periods.

This reverse-jet cleaning system, which functions during the normal course of operation, not only serves to maintain optimum filtering efficiency at all times, but enables the collector to operate at a constant rating – in that it maintains a uniform pressure drop across the collector.

The basis of the DCE 2000 is a module comprising a group of filter elements mounted on a sealed frame. The elements are fitted side by side and the individual sealing arrangement effectively separates the dirty (inlet) side of the collector from the clean (outlet) side. Removal of filter elements is always carried out from the clean side of the collector.

The DCE 2000 collector is available in a range of sizes (see Table), all available with or without fan and 110 litre dust container or rotary valve hopper. An acoustic diffuser is fitted as standard. For further details refer to Publication 2325.

A secondary filter can be fitted to DCE 2000 collectors handling hazardous dusts, enabling filtered air to be recirculated safely back into the working area. It also acts a fail-safe device should the main filter element become damaged. For special applications absolute (HEPA) filters are available (details on request).

With certain dusts the filtered air must not be recirculated – if in doubt refer to Donaldson or the appropriate Health and Safety authorities.

Each secondary filter panel is inserted through the fan section access door and sealed tightly in position by the locating mechanism.

A secondary or absolute filter monitor can be supplied to measure the pressure drop across the filter elements which will indicate the filter condition and when maintenance is required. Equipment is available suitable for use in a potentially explosive atmosphere (Directive 94/9/EC) satisfying the requirements for group II category 2G or 2D and 3G or 3D T135°C.
