INSTALLATION

Dalamatic Insertable dust filters are delivered partly assembled. Final assembly of each filter is as follows:

Mounting over aperture

1 Check that the aperture and fixing holes are correct in size and position to suit the mounting- flanges of the Dalamatic filter (Fig. 1).

2 Open the header cover and from the clean air chamber remove the pack of sealing strip together with the plastic bag containing parts used later for fixing controller.

Apply two continuous beads of sealing strip all round aperture, on either side of the fixing holes, as shown.

3 Arrange lifting tackle to suit mode of insertion per Fig. 2a, b or c.

tackle to suit mode of insertion per Fig. 2a , b or c . Note: On

Note: On V60/15 and V50/12 units. For 4 point lift - vertical insertion. On exit header, weather cowl and fan versions (with or without acoustic diffuser) lift by means of the 4 eyebolts fitted to the exit header top.

Chains or slings should be used with an adequate SWL (Safe Working Load). (Refer to lifting label located adjacent to lifting bracket for weight of equipment supplied by Torit DCE).

Chains must be long enough to ensure that the included angle between diagonal chains is not greater than 90 .

4 Lift and position the filter body until the mounting- flange is seated in position over the aperture. Match up fixing-holes, install bolts, washers and nuts and tighten down all round to form an airtight seal.

Note: For Insertable dust filters mounted on a housing it is recommended that the housing be lifted into position before installation of the filter body. Most housings are fitted with brackets for lifting, however if these are not available a suitable sling arrangement should be used. If there is a requirement to lift both the filter body and housing together, the filter body brackets can be used for vertical insertion, provided the weight of the housing is less than 600kg (refer to lifting label for section weight). For horizontal insertion the use of the filter body lifting brackets alone is not permitted, it is then necessary to also use the housing lifting brackets or a suitable sling arrangement to give additional support.

Flat bar stiffening

When units are explosion stiffened, a set of flat bar stiffeners are supplied with the unit. The flat bar stiffeners should be fitted, when the unit is being installed, at the site joint where the unit is fitted to the mounting flange (see Fig 7).

Final assembly

11 Replace jet tubes (Fig. 10). As each is bolted down, ensure that its open end is pressed firmly into its locator and that the jet tube orifices are pointing towards the inserts.

12 Open plastic bag (removed earlier from clean air chamber) containing fixing bolts, tubing, compression rings and tube nuts.

13 Loosely attach controller on preferred side of filter body by means of the top two bolts and nuts only as circled in Fig. 13, so that controller is temporarily free to be swung outwards a little as explained in paragraph 15.

14 Note from Fig. 13 the manner in which the solenoid pilot-valves projecting from the controller are to be connected by tubes to the diaphragm valves under the compressed air manifold. Cut tubing to suitable lengths and assemble a nut and compression ring to one end of each tube as shown in Fig. 12.

15 Fit tubes, in the order shown, to the solenoid valves under the controller, and pass their free ends through the corresponding holes in the side of the filter body as shown in Fig. 13. (Swinging the controller outwards will simplify connection where space is restricted).

16 Assemble nuts and compression rings to the free tube-ends and connect up to corresponding diaphragm valves under manifold.

Compressed air requirements (Table 4)

Dalamatic Insertable dust filters require an independent supply of clean, dry, oil-free compressed air. Details of atmospheric pressure and quantity are given in Table 4. A design label is also attached to each manifold. Where an existing factory mains system is to be used it may be necessary to install an additional moisture separator in the supply line to the filter. If a compressor is being installed to supply the Dalamatic then the following conditions should be observed as far as possible:

Type of compressor

Use a compressor of ample capacity an overloaded compressor tends to produce excessively contaminated, moisture-laden air.

Location of air intake

Avoid locating the air intake in an excessively polluted area and install an adequate air intake filter. The compressor air intake should be sited, if possible, on the north side of the building fresh air drawn from the north side is usually cooler and denser, and therefore has a lower moisture content. (South of the equator the reverse will apply).

Layout and installation of air lines

The pipework between compressor and dust filter should be long enough to act as a cooling device for the compressed air. A typical requirement for the smaller installation would be 10m (30ft) of 12mm (½" NB) piping. For further details see Table 4. The piping

should be installed to provide a fall in the direction of air flow to assist in the drainage of accumulated moisture.

A blow-down cock should be provided at the lowest

point of the installation.

Pressure relief

The manifold has a maximum operating pressure of 6.2 bar (see Table 3 on page 24).

It is a requirement that adequate precaution is taken to

avoid exceeding this pressure. Where a relief valve is supplied by Torit DCE this device has has a relief rating of 25 dm 3 /s at 6.9 bar. Extra system relief will be required if the connected supply can exceed this.

Controller

Note: It is a requirement of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 1992 to provide adequate isolation and emergency stop facilities. Due to the varied nature of site installations this cannot be provided by Torit DCE but instead is the responsibility of the customer.

Note: All electrical work should be carried out by competent personnel.

Each DLMV dust control filter is supplied with either an EVC controller, an RJC controller or an RJC+ controller to operate the reverse jet cleaning system.

Note: The DLM V20/10 can be supplied with either 5- or 10-way controller. Note: EVC controller is only available in 2 way or 3 way.

Overload protection

All feeder circuits should be adequately protected with suitably-rated fuses and contactors with integral overload protection. A fused isolator, fitted with a 1.6 amp fuse at the correct input voltage rating, should be fitted between the controller and incoming supply. A high rupturing capacity (HRC) cartridge-type fuse must be used.

EVC controller connections and setup

Unscrew the 4 top corner retaining screws and remove lid. Connect the incoming supply to the terminal block J2 (see Fig. 16). Ensure that the terminal block is pushed in fully to engage retaining clips. On the AC version ensure that the voltage setting links are set for the incoming supply voltage (for 105-120V use 2 links in the positions marked 110; for 200-240V use 1 link in the position marked 240. When the 200-240V range is selected the second link is not used - this is attached to the 200-240V link by a cable tie when despatched from Torit DCE).

Note: The mains cables should not exert any undue stress on the terminal block J2. The use of multistrand conductors is advised.

Ensure that the setting links for the pulse duration is set at 200 ms and the pulse interval is set at 25 sec. Also ensure that the setting links for the number of 'ways' is configured to the corresponding number of solenoid valves (i.e. 2 on DLM V3/7 and V5/12 dust filters, 3 on DLM V4/7, V6/10, V7.5/12, V8/7, V9/15, V12/10, V15/12 and V18/15 dust filters) (See Fig. 16). Replace lid and switch on the mains supply. The red LED will flash and the cleaning sequence will commence.

RJC controller connections and setup

Open the lid of the controller and unscrew the 4 top plate retaining screws. Remove the top plate assembly, ensuring that the ribbon cable is disconnected from the lower PCB assembly. Connect the incoming supply to the terminal block J5 (see Fig. 17). Ensure that the terminal block is pushed in fully to engage retaining clips. On the AC version ensure that the voltage setting links are set for the incoming supply voltage (for 105- 120V use 2 links in the positions marked 110; for 200- 240V use 1 link in the position marked 240. When the 200-240V range is selected the second link is not used this is attached to the 200-240V link by a cable tie when despatched from Torit DCE).

Note: The mains cables should not exert any undue stress on the terminal block J5. The use of multistrand conductors is advised. Ensure that socket is fully engaged into the plug on the PCB.

It is recommended that cable with a core size of

2.5mm² is used.

Note: The maximum length of cabling that can be used is 100m.

Instructions for setting up the controller are the same as those for the standard controller.

PT controller

The PT controller is a pneumatically operated device which operates the diaphragm valves in sequence, therefore the need for an electrical supply is eliminated.

PT controller installation

Complete with air regulator, the controller is normally mounted on the side plate. To equal the number of diaphragm valves attached to the manifold, some or all of the ten inlet ports around the head of the controller will be equipped with collet-type connection fittings, any surplus ports being plugged.

A coil of 6mm flexible tubing is also supplied with the

controller, together with compression fittings, for making pneumatic connections between the diaphragm valves and collets. Having assembled a nut and compression ring to one end of the tubing, the first connection should be made to the extreme left-hand diaphragm valve and tightened. The tubing may then be uncoiled enough to reach the lowest left-hand collet easily without kinking, cut to length and firmly pushed into the collet. In this way all the valves from left to right will be connected clockwise to all the collets, so that cleaning pulses will occur in the correct sequence.

Compressed air supply. A supply of clean, dry, compressed air at a pressure of between 3.4 bar (50 psig) and 5.5 bar (80 psig) is needed to operate the controller which has an inlet of 3 mm ( 1 / 8 " NB). The pipe for this is usually brought from a spur off the main supply line to the manifold, and should be connected up to the regulator inlet. The regulator itself is fitted with an air filter of 5 m pore size, and to prevent this filter clogging the spur should be located between the main moisture separator and the manifold. If the supply line is brought from a point upstream from the main moisture separator, or from a different source altogether, it must be fitted with its own moisture separator having a filter of 50-70 m pore size in addition to the supplied separator.

PT controller operation

To appreciate how the PT controller operates, it is important first to understand the function of the dust filter's diaphragm valves by referring to Fig. 24. A PT controller inlet port serves exactly the same purpose as the pilot valve.

Located in the head of the controller is an arm, extending from the spindle of the handwheel. A mark on the handwheel indicates the direction in which the arm is pointing: between movements it will always point between two ports. Running through the arm and spindle is an airway having (1) a spring-loaded mouthpiece so placed as to pass directly under each of the ten inlet ports as the arm is rotated and (2) an outlet port consisting of four transverse holes in the spindle, close under the handwheel.

The controller's internal mechanism serves to rotate this arm clockwise by one tenth of a revolution at a time in a continuous cycle of regular intervals. During each movement, the mouthpiece passes at a preset velocity beneath one of the ten inlet ports. Should this port be coupled up to a diaphragm valve, the compressed air trapped in the interconnecting tube will be discharged, via the airway, to atmosphere. This will enable the valve briefly to open, releasing a burst of compressed air directly from the manifold into the jet tube to produce a cleaning pulse. Once started, the controller will operate continuously in this way until the air regulator is closed or the compressor is switched off.

PT controller settings

The air regulator must be opened to start the controller, and then set at 5.5 bar (80 psig) maximum, by means of the screw and locknut provided.

Pulse duration (factory-set). The brevity of this is critical both to the filter's efficiency and to its life, and is governed by the velocity at which the arm travels past each port. Using specialist timing equipment, the pulse duration is precisely set by means of a fine screw inside the controller to a carefully calculated number of milliseconds to suit the dust filter being served. Under no circumstances should this setting be altered without reference to Torit DCE.

Interval between pulses is also factory-set to suit the dust filter, usually to 12 seconds. With experience, however, it may be varied by the user to suit his application but should never normally be less than 5 seconds or more than 35 seconds. The interval adjustment screw is located under a plug in the end of the controller, close to the air inlet. Beside it, a graphic symbol indicates that it should be turned clockwise to increase, or anticlockwise to decrease, the intervals.

Using a watch, intervals may be timed by listening to the bursts of compressed air from the jet tubes or by observing the pulses in their connection-hoses. The movements of the handwheel projecting from the controller head may also be watched for this purpose but only if all ten ports are connected.

Note: The handwheel may be turned manually as a means of checking that each of the diaphragm valves is operating.

PT operating capacity

The PT controller’s operating temperature range is 0 to 70°C, or 25 to 70°C for dry air.

Note: The length of tubing connected to any one diaphragm valve should not exceed two metres.

Interlocks

Discharge equipment such as belt feeders should be separately controlled but interlocked with the filter controller (see Fig. 19).

The design of the electrical circuitry controlling equipment associated with the Dalamatic filter should be such that breakdown of any one of the associated pieces of equipment does not cause a complete

blockage of the filter. For example, should the motor of

a belt feeder cease to function, the filter housing will

Such interlocks are illustrated in Fig. 19 which also allows for the compressor etc. to operate without airflow through the filter, to facilitate clearance of the filter in the event of blockage due to failure of non-electrical equipment.

Explosion relief

Explosion panels, if fitted to upstand housings, must be relieved and vented* to a safe area in accordance with Factory Inspectorate recommendations.

COMMISSIONING

Note: It is a requirement of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 1992 to provide adequate isolation and emergency stop facilities. Due to the varied nature of site installations this cannot be provided by Torit DCE but instead is the responsibility of the customer.

Verify operation of the interlocks and audible warning system if fitted.

If any of the above check boxes are not ticked, then the reasons why should be investigated. (Refer to table 1, on page 19).

Note: All electrical work should be carried out by competent personnel.

Start-up sequence

When making your preliminary checks, or during the start-up sequence, particularly note that on filters fitted with an explosion panel the cleaning system should not be operated on its own for longer than necessary as the positive pressure produced could weaken the Membrex membrane.

Commissioning check list

Having completed all the necessary checks, the equipment may be put into operation. A typical installation, as shown in Fig. 19, should be started up as follows:

1 Start up compressed air supply.

2 Set the equipment being served, if applicable, in motion.

3 Switch on RJC controller.

Note: This procedure is not recommended where explosion panels are fitted, as damage could result to the Membrex membrane. In such cases consult with Torit DCE.

2 After 10-15 minutes, switch off RJC controller and compressor but leave discharge equipment running to ensure that it is emptied.

Note: If an RJC+ controller is fitted then the off- line cleaning facility can be used. (See page 16).

3 After a further 5 minutes, switch off the discharge equipment if applicable.

Adherence to the above procedure will ensure that a Dalamatic filter installation is maintained at optimum efficiency.

OPERATION

Principle of operation

Dust-laden air is ducted into the chamber containing the filter elements, where it impinges on all their outer surfaces. A layer of dust builds up on the outside of the elements as the air itself penetrates the fabric (see Fig. 20a). The clean air emerges from the outlet header of each filter element into the cleaned air chamber and from there it is discharged, normally via the fan, to atmosphere.

At regular intervals, governed by the controller, each element in turn receives a short burst of compressed air from its respective jet tube (see Fig. 20b). As previously

mentioned, the jet tube has a series of small-diameter jet orifices positioned adjacent to the outlet header of each filter element (see Figs. 20 and 23). These orifices are of an optimum size and distance from the filter element, ensuring that a large volume of air is induced by each injection of compressed air. This causes a brief, powerful reversal of airflow through the filter element, flexing the fabric outwards and effectively dislodging the dust layer.

In this way the pressure drop across the whole filter is kept at a virtually constant level, enabling the Dalamatic to operate continuously, twenty-four hours a day.

Controller (Fig. 1)

The controller is fully automatic and ensures that the diaphragm valves of the Dalamatic filter it serves are operated in sequence, at regular intervals, to facilitate the efficient cleaning of the filter elements. The pulse duration must be set at 60, 110 or 200 ms, according to the filter model (see Table 4). The interval between pulses must be set at 12 or 25 sec, again according to the filter model (see Table 4). These figures should not be altered without prior consultation with Torit DCE.

Interrupt options

The RJC controller offers the facility to interrupt and restart cleaning cycle at any point. This is particularly useful on venting applications where the actual filter operates over a short period of time (e.g. pneumatic conveying of small quantities of product) where a complete cleaning cycle may not take place. Under normal circumstances if the power to the controller is switched off the cleaning cycle is reset to the first element position when the power is reapplied. The interrupt option can be used to start and stop the cleaning without the controller resetting, provided that the power is left on, ensuring that all filter elements are cleaned.

In order to utilise this function a volt free contact (typically from a PLC system) should be connected across the terminals marked ‘INT’ on the lower PCB (see Fig. 17). Closing the contact stops the cleaning cycle opening the contact restarts the cycle.

Off-line cleaning facility

This function (when enabled) allows the cleaning cycle to continue for a period of time after the fan has been switched off. In order for this function to operate, a normally open contact, on the fan starter system, must be connected to the lower PCB terminals, marked with

the

controller that the fan is either off or on. The off-line

control (RJC+ only)

The principle feature of the RJC+ controller is the control system, which ensures effective and economical use of the dust control filter's reverse-jet cleaning system. Under normal operation a dust coating on the filtration medium can enhance the filter's overall efficiency but this 'dust cake' will become detrimental if allowed to build up to such an extent that it becomes a barrier to the air flow.

The control system monitors this build-up of dust by measuring the Differential Pressure (known as the ' ') across the filtration medium and dust cake. The RJC+

This process is repeated every time the pressure rises to the high level limit.

Note: When the reverse-jet cleaning is activated a symbol is shown on the display next to the symbol.

This system ensures that a combination of both efficient filter performance and minimum compressed air consumption is maintained.

In order for this function to operate, the RJC+ controller

enclosure. The clean and dirty side connections are

MAINTENANCE

Note: A platform should be used when carrying out maintenance where the technician's feet are greater or equal to 2 metres above ground level.

Note: Always isolate the electrical supply before servicing.

Routine inspection

To maintain the optimum performance of any Dalamatic filter a routine inspection should be made to minimise down-time in the event of equipment malfunction, particularly on continuous performance applications and to ensure the equipment is maintained to its original supply condition.

Any abnormal change in pressure absorbed across the filter elements indicates a change in operating conditions and a fault to be rectified. For example, a prolonged stoppage of compressed air will cause an

excessive build-up of dust on the elements, resulting in

a greatly increased pressure drop.

After the fault has been rectified, resumption of compressed air cleaning will usually return the filter to normal efficiency. However, it is advisable to operate the RJC controller in still-air conditions for a short period to dislodge any accumulated dust before putting the Dalamatic filter into operation.

Filter resistance can be checked by connecting a U- tube manometer or differential-type pressure gauge to tapping points on the filter body and equipment being served (see Fig. 1 and note* below). This will give a continuous indication of the state of the filter. Once running, the operating resistance will be relatively stable, the actual value depending on the air volume and the characteristics of the dust being handled.

Note*: To fit manometer connection to tapping point position remove hexagon head set screw, nut and washers which blank-off tapping point hole located in base side panel. If exit header is fitted, access may be gained by removing the header cover. Fit a suitable manometer connection in place of the hexagon head set screw etc., ensuring it is capped when not in use. If requested, Torit DCE can supply the recommended parts to enable connection to measuring equipment.

It is recommended to periodically inspect the general

casing integrity.

Do not operate above recommended compressed air pressure. Excessive pressure will reduce the working life of components.

Dalamatic housings or upstands fitted with explosion relief should be inspected weekly to ensure that the

bursting panels are intact and clear of obstruction. During winter, particular care must be taken to prevent build-up of snow or ice on explosion panels.

Servicing schedule

A record of all pressure checks should be kept in a log book to aid the speedy diagnosis of faulty operation.

Weekly

1 Open the valve at the bottom of the moisture separator bowl and allow the collected water to drain off, then close the valve.

2 Connect a manometer to tapping points (see note* under Routine inspection) and measure the pressure drop across the filter.

Monthly

Check operation of solenoid and diaphragm valves. If it is found necessary to replace a diaphragm, use the following procedure (see Fig. 21):

Use service kit available from Torit DCE.

1 Moisture separator

Isolate the compressed air

supply; remove and clean the filter element.

2 Air manifold

Having isolated the compressed air

supply, remove the drain plug and air inlet connections and clean out any accumulated sludge and inspect to any current local legislation. Note: It may be necessary to remove a diaphragm valve for internal inspection purposes.

3 Doors

Check the dust seals on all access doors for

damage or ageing and ensure that they are properly seated to prevent entry of water. This is particularly important where the filter is located outside or in a wet atmosphere. Faulty seals must be replaced.

4 Filter elements (inserts and pads)

Remove the jet

tubes then remove each filter element and check the general condition of the pad. Clean each pad using

a vacuum cleaner. If the dust is of an abrasive nature it is advisable to examine the elements more frequently. Pads showing holes must be replaced.

When refitting filter elements, do not over-tighten. If elements are horizontally mounted, tighten bottom clamp first. (Recommended maximum torque 20 ft- lbs f or 27 Nm.)

5 Jet Tubes

Check that the jet tubes are clean and

that the jet orifices are clear.

6 Flameproof maintenance

It is important that all

flameproof enclosures, motors and cable glands are inspected for corrosion and tightness on an annual

basis.

Note: In particularly aggressive environments, this period should be more frequent.

Controller

Overload protection

All feeder circuits should be adequately protected with suitably-rated fuses and contactors with integral overload protection.

A fused isolator, fitted with a 1.5 amp fuse at the correct

input voltage rating, should be fitted between the controller and incoming supply. A high rupturing capacity (HRC) cartridge-type fuse must be used.

Protection of the RJC controller against an output current overload is achieved by a small HRC cartridge fuse mounted on the PCB (see Fig. 17). In an emergency a quick-acting fuse could be used as a temporary alternative but a time delay fuse must not be used under any circumstances.

Replacement PCBs

The fitment of replacement PCBs is relatively simple. However, it must be noted that the lower PCB assembly

is a universal spare and must be configured to the

number of solenoid valves fitted in the solenoid valve enclosure. In order to do this the jumper links, denoted

by the

position (either 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 or 10). Failure to carry out

this procedure will result in poor filter performance.

Note: When fitting replacement PCBs note must be taken of the barcode serial number (found on the lower PCB). If the first digit is a (1), replace both upper and lower PCB. If the barcode serial number begins with a (2) and the 28 pin device has a yellow label then either the upper or lower PCB may be replaced.

Fault location

There are three basic indications of loss of Dalamatic filter performance:

1 Part loss of suction (excessive pressure differential)

2 Total loss of suction

3 Effluent in the clean air outlet

Some of the reasons for the faults may be common to all three.

Service engineers should rectify any incipient faults they may find during their investigations. For example, loose terminals should be tightened, perished hoses replaced etc.

SPECIFICATIONS

Description and Range

THE DALAMATIC INSERTABLE is an automatic reverse- jet type of dust filter, designed to handle known quantities of dust-laden air, and is capable of continuous operation over extended periods by virtue of the 'reverse air' filter cleaning system employed. This system, which functions during the normal course of operation, not only serves to maintain optimum filtering efficiency at all times, but enables the filter to operate at a constant rating in that it maintains a uniform pressure drop across the filter.

The basis of the Dalamatic is a module comprising a group of filter elements mounted on a sealed frame. The elements are fitted side by side and the individual sealing arrangement effectively separates the dirty (inlet) side of the filter from the clean (outlet) side, as shown in Fig. 20. Removal of filter elements is always carried out from the clean side of the filter.

Machinery noise levels are an important consideration in the design and selection of new equipment. Several EC directives and national laws/regulations adopting these directives make reference to airborne noise emissions. Actions that employers are required to comply with if employees are subjected to a daily personal noise exposure Lep'd of 85 dB(A) or more are also specified. All Dalamatic Insertable filters, when fitted with acoustic diffuser, operating an 8 hour shift are below this action limit (see Table 2).

The DLM V type F dust filter also incorporates a fan to provide the suction necessary for efficient operation in non-pressurised conditions such as conveyor transfer points.

Components

Controller (Fig. 1)

The controller complies with the electromagnetic emissions/immunity requirements of the European Directive 89/336/EEC, together with all current world standards (e.g. BS standard for Electrical/Electronic equipment EN 60204-1).

The EVC controller consists of an IP67 weatherproof ABS enclosure with either AC or DC input voltage options. Mounted within the box is a printed circuit board, together with the solenoid valves.

The operating temperature range for the EVC controller is 10 C to 60 C at 25% RH, or 10 C to 45 C at 81% RH. (For temperatures outside these limits refer to Torit DCE).

The Dalamatic Insertable dust filter range is based on seven sizes of filter module, each containing a number of filter elements (as indicated in Table 2). These filter elements are available in four sizes, having an effective filtration area of 0.7m², 1.0m², 1.25m² and 1.5m² respectively (see Table 2).

The dust filter is designed for application in silos, bunkers, conveyor transfer points etc. Variations of the Insertable are available for applications in pneumatic conveying systems, operating at pressures either above or below atmospheric pressure depending on filter type. For further details refer to Publication 2594 and Data Sheet 364.

Construction

The RJC controller consists of an IP65 weatherproof ABS enclosure, with either AC or DC input voltage options. Mounted within the box are two printed circuit boards which control the solenoid valve timing functions and the front plate display.

The RJC+ controller consists of an IP65 weatherproof ABS enclosure with either AC or DC input voltage options. Mounted within the box are two printed circuit boards, together with the solenoid valves.

*All readings were taken in normal industrial areas, i.e. semi-reverberant surroundings, with local equipment silent, at 1.0 metre radius from the equipment housing and 1.6 metres above base level, using a precision sound level meter and octave filter. Noise measurements of installed equipment may vary due to site conditions. **If outlet is supplied on opposite side to standard position it would result in increased noise levels.

RJC+ upgrade

A standard RJC controller can be upgraded to an RJC+, on-site, relatively easily. In order to perform an upgrade an RJC+ upgrade kit pack is available. Check the barcode serial number, if the first digit is a (1), replace the lower PCB, and fit upgrade kit pack, if the first digit of the barcode is a (2) and the 28 pin device has a yellow label fit the upgrade kit pack.

The upgrade kit pack contains the following:

1 Top plate assembly, including PCB and membrane keypad.

2 2 relays

3 1 8-way terminal socket

4 1 length 6 mm o/d tubing (small)

5 2 bulkhead fittings

6 2 tailpiece adapters

7 1 clean/dirty side label

8 2 bonded seals

Note: External fitting kit pack(s) is supplied to suit.

Assembly of fittings

To perform the upgrade the following steps are to be carried out:

1

Switch off supply to RJC Controller.

2

Remove existing top plate assembly and disconnect from lower PCB.

3

Drill two 14mm dia. holes in the right hand face of the box as shown in Fig. 18.

4

Fit the two bulkhead fittings, tailpiece adapters and bonded seals as shown in Fig. 22.

5

Plug the two relays in to the lower PCB in the areas labelled RLY1 and RLY2 (see Fig. 17).

6

Fit the 8-way terminal socket to the vacant 8-way PCB mounted plug (see Fig. 17).

7

Connect the pressure transducer to the bulkhead fittings as shown in Fig. 22, using the small diameter tubing.

8

Connect the top PCB to the lower PCB using the ribbon cable (into the socket marked DB).

9

Fit top plate assembly into box.

10

Fit clean and dirty side label to outside of the box in the position as shown in Fig 18.

11

Connect clean and dirty side tappings on the filter to the clean and dirty side tappings on the controller, using the large diameter tubing in separate kit pack.

12

Switch on power.

Compressed air distribution manifold (Fig. 1)

The manifold is fabricated from either 150sq x 6mm thick or 180sq x 8mm thick steel tube, with welded ends. Holes are provided for diaphragm valves, drain plug, pressure relief valve and air inlet moisture separator connections. (Moisture separator and pressure relief valve are not supplied as standard with the dust filter). Note: It may be necessary to remove a diaphragm valve for internal inspection purposes. The manifold supplied with the Dalamatic Insertable dust filter has been independently approved to operate under the conditions as specified in Table 3.

Valves (Figs. 1 & 24)

The compressed air is supplied to each jet tube via a diaphragm valve, the opening and closing of which is controlled by a solenoid-operated pilot valve connected to the diaphragm vent by a flexible nylon tube. The solenoid valves are energised sequentially by electrical pulses generated by the controller.

Filter elements (Figs. 1, 20 & 23)

Each removable filter element is rectangular in shape and comprises a slim wire mesh frame or 'insert' for the

filter pad, to which is welded a shaped steel outlet header with sealing flange. The filter pad itself consist of a rectangular pocket incorporating a resilient sealing ring at the open end. The pad is pulled over the wire portion of the insert until the sealing ring meets the sealing flange. The ring is compressed when the element is clamped into the seal frame, effectively isolating the dirty side from the clean side of the filter. There are four sizes of element, designated 0.7m, 1.0m, 1.25m and 1.5m according to the length of filter pad and used as shown in Table 2.

Antistatic filter elements are available, together with stainless steel and brass securing bolts and washers, as an option for installations where the dust is potentially explosive. (See 'Antistatic earthing' on page 8.)

Seal frame (Figs. 20 & 23)

The seal frame assembly is a rectangular structure of sheet steel which is flanged for rigidity and incorporates a slotted steel pressing into which the filter elements are inserted and secured by clamps. The number of seal frames depends on the filter size.

An earthing boss is fitted to all antistatic versions of filters for antistatic earthing (see Fig. 1).

Jet tubes (Figs. 1, 20 & 23)

Positioned in the 'clean side' of the filter is a series of full- length 'jet tubes' having small-diameter jet orifices located adjacent to the outlet header of each filter element. The 'open' end of each tube is connected by a rubber hose to a compressed air valve; the closed end is flattened and crimped, and is secured by a bolt and nut.
