Mod­u­lar fil­tra­tion cov­ers large range of ap­pli­ca­tions

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

Eg­mont Air has a new mod­u­lar range of dust col­lec­tion sys­tems for fil­ter­ing fine dust par­ti­cles and pow­ders.

Car­tridge fil­tra­tion tech­nol­ogy can pro­vide a guar­an­teed clean-air dis­charge for mi­cron-sized par­ti­cles. Dif­fer­ent media op­tions such as fire-re­tar­dant, PTFE and anti-static car­tridges mean they fil­ter units can be spec­i­fied for a large range of ap­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing; hot smoke and fume, oily smokes and dust par­ti­cles, volatile pow­der and sol­vents, etc.

In a re­cent pro­ject for fine volatile pow­der, an an­ti­static media was used to re­duce pos­si­bil­ity of static charge, as well as many other safety fea­tures, such as ver­ti­cal-dis­charge ex­plo­sion re­lief pan­els and Atex non-re­turn valves for max­i­mum pro­tec­tion.

The Fil­ter sys­tem cap­tures the fine par­tic­u­late at the source to pre­vent the pow­der from dis­pers­ing into the op­er­a­tors breath­ing zone or around the fac­tory. This has pro­vided a clean and safe work­shop while en­sur­ing that the op­er­a­tors breath­ing zone is pro­tected.

The sys­tem is also very easy to main­tain, with quick-re­lease bins for col­lect­ing the residue pow­ders and a fully au­to­matic fil­ter-clean­ing sys­tem which pro­vides con­tin­ual clean­ing of fil­ters to main­tain op­ti­mum fil­ter­ing ef­fi­ciency, fil­ter con­di­tion and dis­charge air qual­ity.

Eg­mont Air can also spec­ify sys­tems with an eco-power sav­ing de­vice which con­trols fan speed and energy sav­ings when var­i­ous out­lets are switched off. “A small 20 per­cent re­duc­tion in air­flow will pro­vide a large 50 per­cent power con­sump­tion sav­ing – this is some­thing that pro­vides im­me­di­ate pay­back to lean-con­scious man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties.”

Eg­mont Air, spe­cial­ists in dust and fume ex­trac­tion pro­vide so­lu­tions for all dust and fume ex­trac­tion ap­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing tech­ni­cal on-site eval­u­a­tion of haz­ardous area and chem­i­cal pro­cess­ing sit­u­a­tions. A full range of fil­ters, bag-houses, dust col­lec­tors, fans, mod­u­lar duct and f lex is avail­able in NZ.
