The Vital Importance of Dust Collection

and Bulk Material Handling for the Agriculture Industry


Agricultural Applications

Receiving and Storage

Almost all the dust found in a grain elevator or facility is created at the grain receiving pits. Dust generated by elevator legs, transfer points, and scale bins can be ducted to a single fabric dust collector to reduce housekeeping and the chance of an explosion. Ducting a dust collector into a dryer is also recommended. When grain is emptied into storage bins and silos, dust is created as the air is displaced and the storage vessel is filled. Bin vents installed on top of these bins collect the dust as it’s created.

  • Truck and Railcar Loading and Unloading
  • Grain Storage and Transfer
  • Grain Receiving
  • Grain pre-cleaning


As the grain is needed for further processing, it is conveyed to screeners, separators, aspirators, stoners, and scourers, all of which create dust that can be ducted to a single or multiple dust collector(s). Maximize product yield from the hammermill with a dust collector and pneumatically convey it back to the process.

  • Screening and Separating
  • Destoning and Scouring
  • Hammermill Grinding


Once grain has been rolled, sifted, and purified, the resulting product, such as flour, oats, rice, or animal feed, can be pneumatically conveyed to silos, which are designed to store and transfer dry-bulk ingredients accurately on demand.

  • Aspiration
  • Sifting
  • Purification

Bagging and Shipping

Camcorp has designed efficient pneumatic conveying systems complete with airlocks and rotary valves, scale hoppers, and control systems. Experts also provide start-up and commissioning services.

  • Pneumatic Conveying
  • Bulk Material Handling
  • Positive Displacement Blowers

3 adjacent bin vents installed on top of silos


Bin vents combine pulse jet baghouse and cartridge filter collectors benefits. Bin vents are mounted on dust-generating equipment such silos, mixers, scale hoppers, and mechanical conveyors. All bin vent dust collectors exceed important flammable dust criteria and have OSHA-approved service platforms and ladders. The filtration system can use bags and cages, cartridges, or tailored to fit your application.


With its innovative engineering, the Camcorp CAM-AIRO can handle almost any problem involving dry dust and fume collecting. Unlike horizontal designs, which over time may lose approximately 30% of the filter media area, the CAM-AIRO cartridge collector’s vertical design maximizes almost 100% of the filter media surface.


Camcorp has a large selection of round filter receivers. Your productivity depends on easy maintenance, thus we offer top bag, side bag, and walk-in clean air plenum access. Conventional bags with cages or pleated filter elements can make round filter receivers. In general, round filter receivers have higher dust loading and a lower air-to-cloth ratio than regular dust collectors.

Reverse air dust collector models HVP™ (medium pressure) and SWF™ (low pressure) are the premium choice for processing and manufacturing industries where it’s common to work with high air volumes that involve heavy dust loading. Camcorp leads the industry by delivering the most conventional sizes and configurable configurations to solve all dust collection problems. Our equipment can handle above 250,000 CFM.


Camcorp helps companies automate manual operations to boost productivity, quality, and labor savings. Camcorp offers vacuum and pressure pneumatic conveying, minor ingredient automation, dust collecting, and dehumidification. Integrating process controls with batch management software is available.
