Direct Pull System

Direct Pull System 

A Direct Pull system involves drawing the material from the rail car using a vacuum pump directly to a vacuum receiver on top of the silo.  ABS Pumps, Vacuum Receivers, and Air Filters are perfect for this application.

Pump Package

Pump Packages are designed for the conveying of bulk solids.  High-efficiency motors, high-vacuum relief valves, premium silencers, and a secondary paper canister filter all come standard in pump packages.  Optional Variable Frequency Drive controls the pick-up velocity of the material to reduce angel hair and improve system efficiency.

Vacuum Receivers

Vacuum Receivers were developed for optimal productivity and up-time.  Flapper-style Receivers feature an industrial hinge for consistent swing, and an inductive proximity sensor for simple set-up and operation.  Knifegates are an optional outlet, allowing the vessel to serve as a surge hopper and eliminating potential leaks due to pellet wedging.

Air Filters

Air Filters are designed to optimize airflow through the unit and minimize restrictions.  Units have a precise measure of delta P, which is used to alarm and control cleaning cycles so that only dirty bags are cleaned.  Units feature a front door with easy bag access, and bags are connected with quick-release clamps for easy changing.  Removable bin collects contaminants.

ABS now offers Air Filtration Units that are NFPA compliant for Hazard Class combustible materials rated up to ST2.
