WAM Group builds on legacy vent with Silotop Zero model

In the 20 years since its introduction, Silotop has become what developer WAM Group notes is a “global benchmark for silo venting and de-dusting applications.” To keep pace with ever-changing and stricter environmental protection laws, the company has developed Silotop Zero. Thanks to new filter media, the model makes silo venting in concrete plants even more eco-friendly than its predecessor, the Silotop R03—increasing efficiency to 99.90 percent-plus when used with cement.

An industrially manufactured dust collector with stainless steel housing, Silotop Zero offers users benefits that cannot be matched by conventional silo venting filters. The collector is equipped with seven, Environmental Protection Agency-class Polypleat filter elements manufactured entirely by WAM. The total weight of the collector, at 175 lbs., facilitates installation, while its 39-in. body rim height allows for an easy and safe filter element replacement. Silotop Zero is fully interchangeable with the R03 predecessor model, offering what product engineers contend is top quality with an attractive price-performance ratio. — WAM USA Inc., Lawrenceville, Ga., 770/339-6767; www.waminc.com
