Dust Bag

The Dust Bag is a passive dust collection system that gets installed above the conveyor loading zone to capture dust without an energy-consuming fan. When loading stops, the Martin® Dust Bag relaxes to return material to belt.

Features and Benefits:

  • Passive filtration system cleans air without mechanical collection
  • Satin nylon construction withstands positive pressure under crushers and other air sources
  • Suitable for use where air flow is below 1000 cfm (28,320 l/minute)
  • Both Standard and Static Dissipating Bags are available 12-inch (300-mm) and 24-inch. (600-mm) diameters. Use the 24-inch. (600-mm) diameter bag when air flow is greater than 450 cfm (12,750 l/minute)
  • Clamped in place, bag is equipped with a hanging grommet and a grounding strap to disperse static electricity

Belt Support Products Solve Fugitive Dust And Spillage Problems
A coal plant had spillage and dust issues at two conveyor transfer points, because material was loaded onto the belts traveling 500 fpm with little control over impact or settling. The result was excessive fugitive dust throughout the facility. Inadequate chute control caused spillage to get caught between the belt and rubber tail pulley, damaging both.
