Air cleaner designed for cereal use

AN air cleaner capable of handling the large quantities of moisture-laden air produced by grain driers will be launched at the Grain 96 exhibition.

Bristol-based Law-Denis Engin- eering claims its Airscreen range of cleaners has been specifically designed for use with cereals and will remove all dust greater than 100 microns from the exhaust air.

To achieve this effect the cleaner incorporates a filter mesh which moves through the air stream filtering out dust. A reverse air flow cleans the mesh.

Dust is then removed by a conveyor and can be disposed of or returned to the air flow.

At Grain 96 Law-Denis will display the free-standing Airscreen 12 model, which is designed to operate with grain cleaners with an air exhaust volume of 12,000cu m/hour (423,770cu ft/hour). Typical price of such a unit, without a fan, is about £3750.

&#8226 Grain 96 takes place on Wed, Feb 7, and Thur, Feb 8, at the National Agricultural Centre, Stoneleigh, Warwicks. &#42
