Dust Collector Filter & Precipitator Cleaning

Dust Collector Filter & Precipitator Cleaning

Filtration systems such as dust collectors, electrostatic precipitators and baghouses are critical to maintaining clean air in a healthy work environment.  However, traditional methods for cleaning, such as reverse air, are not fully effective for removing all dust buildup, especially on filter thimbles.

Cleveland Vibrator Company's pneumatic piston vibrators and precipitator rappers will:

  • Improve air filtration operations and lower ongoing maintenance costs.
  • Lower filter replacement rates by removing dust build up on thimbles and reducing air velocity and wear in bags
  • Reduce cost compared to alternatives such as pneumatic sonic horns by requiring fewer units and less compressed air

Electrostatic Precipitators and
Collection Hoppers


  • 3" PMA Rapper delivers shock power to wires, rods and plates to keep them clean of fine particulates and operating at peak power
  • Vibra-Might vibrator or SI air knocker keeps collection hopper walls clean to ensure smooth flow of fine particulates to the feeder or discharge for total clean out


Cyclone Collectors
  • Air knockers deliver a single penetrating impact at the optimum rate to keep walls free and clear of fine particulates
  • Vibra-Might vibrator or SI air knocker prevents material buildup due to moisture or stickiness of fine particulates

Bag Type Dust Collectors and Collection Hoppers

  • Vibra-Might vibrator or SI air knocker delivers shock power to keep bags and thimbles clear of fine particulates without fatiguing bags or structure
  • Keeps collection hopper walls clean to ensure smooth flow of fine particulates to the feeder or discharge for total clean out
