Aerodyne Launches Dust Hound Dust Collector Featuring Carbon Steel Construction

Press Release Summary:

The Dust Hound Dust Collector is offered in DH-24, DH-30 and DH-48 models that are 42.38, 54.38 and 89.50 in. tall respectively. The collector utilizes specially shaped ground plate for creating localized pressure drop and diverts dust towards the walls for interrupting airflow. The cyclone is suitable for use in ceramics, plastics, metal powders, food ingredients, industrial woodworking and quarry industries. The product can be used as a pre-filter for equipment such as cartridge collectors, baghouses, electrostatic precipitators and wet scrubbers.

Original Press Release:

Dust Hound Dust Collector is as Efficient as Cyclones Half Its Size

Fits tight spaces without costly renovations

CLEVELAND, OH – November 13, 2018 – Aerodyne Environmental, a manufacturer of industrial dust collectors and material handling valves, announced its Dust Hound Dust Collector. About 55% as tall as a standard cyclone for the same efficiency and airflow, it more easily fits available space without costly facility and process line renovations. Also, it lowers cost by allowing the smallest size cyclone that will do the job. 

No other cyclone on the market is as small while remaining this efficient, up to 99% at 20 microns.

What’s more, small cyclones can be used for point-of-use dust collection that may help managers achieve NFPA compliance for potentially combustible dust without costly ductwork. Per NFPA-654 (2), air separators with a dirty side volume less than 8ft3 can be safety located indoors, under certain circumstances.

Applications include point-of-use product recovery, pneumatic conveying, and as a pre-filter for other dust handling equipment such as cartridge collectors, baghouses, electrostatic precipitators and wet scrubbers. As a pre-filter, a cyclone can increase filter life, lower compressed air usage, and reduce filter maintenance.

Industries targeted include ceramics, plastics, chemicals, metal powders, food ingredients, industrial woodworking and quarries.

Unique Design Increases Efficiency

Constructed of carbon steel, the Dust Hound cyclone uses a specially shaped ground plate to divert dust towards the walls and to interrupt the airflow, creating a very localized pressure drop that causes more particulate to fall out of the airstream and reduce dust re-entrainment.


The Aerodyne Dust Hound is available now. Model DH-24 is 42.38 inches tall, model DH-30 is 54.38 inches tall, and model DH-48 is 89.50 inches tall. Air flow rates are per the table below.
