These units utilize a cyclone separator and a filter baghouse.
Air leaving the float-ball vacuum shut-off in the debris body enters a cyclone housing located on the passenger size of the unit and directly in front of the debris body. Additionally, there is a filter baghouse which is found on the driver side of the unit and directly in front of the debris body. It protects the blower by removing all material from the air stream before it reaches the blower.
The cyclone spins the air stream around the walls of the housing until it reaches the bottom of the cyclone housing. The cyclone reduces particle matter in the airstream leaving relatively clean air to return to the top of the cyclone so that it may enter the baghouse filter. The air stream enters the baghouse bottom and travels upward through a series of filters that stretch the length of the baghouse. There are 60 cloth filter bags 70″ long that hang from the top of the baghouse and stretch to the bottom of the baghouse. Airflow continues through the filter bags and leaves it though the baghouse outlet.
Note: The filters or filter bags should be inspected before each operation. If they are torn, damaged, dirty or worn, they should be replaced before beginning operations.
Access to the filter baghouse and cyclone can be gained by using the ladder mounted on the passenger side of the debris body.
