TODAY’S PATENT – PORTABLE DUST COLLECTOR
The Portable Dust Collector was invented by Michael W. Seitz on December 11, 2014 bearing patent number US20140360371A1.
A transportable dust collector which meets size standards for road, sea and train transport and which has the capability of filtering large volumes of air would be very desirable for such applications. It is an object of this invention to incorporate a dust collector into a shipping container to make it highly portable.
A portable dust collector comprises a rectangular box-shaped housing containing a rectangular box shaped filter chamber having a dust collection volume in a lower portion thereof and providing plenums for operative gas circulation in a compact environment. The filter chamber shares a portion of the floor with the housing and has a pair of internal parallel sidewalls spaced inwardly from the outside sidewalls of the housing. The internal sidewalls define a plurality of filter chamber dirty gas inlets located just under an apertured cell plate from which the filters hang. The system is provided with a pulse jet cleaning system located in the clean air plenum above the cell plate.
