A new family of dust collectors has been announced by Sly Inc. The RAC Series of reverse-air collectors features an advanced reverse air cleaning system that removes accumulated dust from filter bags without requiring compressed air. Each collector has an internal blower powered by an explosion-proof motor. A cleaning arm with high-velocity nozzles directs this air for optimal continuous cleaning of each filter bag on every rotation of the arm. A heavy-duty, 3/4-HP, explosion-proof gear drive motor (designed for continuous service) is employed to move the cleaning arm.

Sly RAC collectors have the capability to filter from about 4500 to 70,000 ACFM, and a variety of filter media is available. The collectors come standard with many features designed to provide reliable, long service, including a walk-in clean air plenum; 10-gauge carbon steel construction; snap band top load filter bags; and heavy-duty, 12 wire cages made of 11 gauge galvanized wire. Additional standard features include a pressure differential gauge, lifting lugs, a tangential inlet with vortex breaker and OSHA service platform, and a caged ladder and supports.
