The Vital Importance of Dust Collection

and Bulk Material Handling for the Ethanol Industry


Ethanol Applications

Here are common ethanol applications where Camcorp has extensive experience:

Receiving and Storage

Dust in grain elevators and facilities is mostly formed in grain receiving pits. A fabric dust collector can collect elevator leg, transfer point, and scale bin dust to reduce housekeeping and explosion risk. Also propose ducting a dust collector into a dryer. As grain is unloaded into storage bins and silos, air is expelled, creating dust. Top bin vents catch dust as it’s formed.

  • Truck and railcar loading and unloading.
  • Grain storage and transfer
  • Grain Receiving
  • Grain pre-cleaning

Dry Grinding of Corn

As the corn 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 collectors. Maximize DDGS yield from the hammermill with a dust collector and pneumatically convey it back to the process.

  • Screening and Separating
  • Destoning and Scouring
  • Hammermill Grinding

DDGS Loadout, Cooling, and Storage

When loading DDGS into silos, bins, or hoppers, a dust collector is essential. A properly sized dust collector will reduce dust from non-combustible regions by reducing a fine dust cloud. Camcorp offers a blower package with a sound enclosure to reduce pneumatic conveyor blower noise in addition to fire and ignition safety.

  • DDGS cooling interim storage.
  • Transferring large amounts of co-products

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.


High-pressure, high-vacuum, and explosion-containment pulse jet baghouses are Camcorp’s specialty. We also offer a full range of standard pulse jet baghouses, from bottom- or top-loading bags to walk-in clean air plenums with various inlets.


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.


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.
