Foundry and Metal Working Dust Collectors

Foundries and dust collectors are made for each other. Whether it is dust from sand castings to metal dust, foundries require dust collection and Aerodyne is here for you.

GPC Cyclone

The GPC cyclone pre-filter is ideal for foundries. The GPC removes the majority of the dust before it reaches your filter. This extends the life of the filter and decreases the maintenance required on the dust collector. The GPC also acts as a spark arrester, thereby protecting the filters from catching on fire. The compact size of the GPC allows it to be installed on existing systems where a traditional cyclone won’t fit.


The Vacu-Valve is an economical alternative to rotary valves. Since foundry dust is usually metal and sand, the Vacu-Valve is usually a good alternative. Maintenance on the Vacu-Valve can usually be finished in 5 minutes compared to the hours required for a rotary valve.

Double Dump Valve

The Aerodyne double dump valve is a low leakage airlock. At all times, one portion of the valve is closed, so there is no direct route for air to leak out. The valve has a large area so oversized particulate can clear without fear of jamming or getting lodged in the valve.

Knife Gate

The Aerodyne StopTight Knife gate has been used on hoppers for manual and pneumatic control of the hopper. The cast aluminum body and stainless steel knife plate allow for easy control of the hopper. They are also ideal for installation above a rotary valve. When closed they will isolate the system so the rotary valve can be sent to maintenance without shutting down the system.

Rotary Valve

Rotary valves are used in a variety of applications as an airlock. They isolate the dust collector from the outside environment allowing the collected dust to exit the system. Aerodyne rotary valves have been used in a variety of abrasive applications in foundries.
