A dust collector, such as the Koger Cyclone System with 30 hp Baldor Blower, is commonly used with an oxidizer as the final step in the soil remediation process. The vaporized gasses and dust, a result of the soil heating and tumbling in the rotary drum, are routed into the dust collector, which acts as an air pollution control device. The dust collector filters and collects the dust, similar to a vacuum cleaner, and passes the collected material to the dryer’s discharge system where it is mixed with the clean soil and recycled, while the vapors pass through the oxidizer in order to be safely admitted into the atmosphere. Cyclones are also used as the first step in the thermal drying process. Material is received into the cyclone, which serves as a collection unit and transfers the material through the bottom opening into the actual dryer.
A cyclone uses vortex separation to remove particles from an air, gas or liquid stream. Rather than using a filter, cyclones rely on rotation and gravity to separate the components. Dirty air enters the cone through and inlet and rotates within the cyclone body and conical bottom section, releasing dirt and dust through the bottom opening and clean air through the outlet at the top.
The Koger 7600 CFM Cyclone has a 72” diameter and is 15” high. The blower has a 15” x 7’ outlet and is powered by a Baldor 30 hp, 1700 rpm electric motor. The entire has been fully renovated and is in good condition and ready to go to work.
