Just like a SU­PER TROOPER

DE­SIGNED AND MADE IN SCAN DANA VIA: SU­PER BLOW­ERS THE WORLD’ S SAFE ST PULSE CLEAN­ING DUST FIL­TERS.

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - DUST AND FUME -

The SuperBlower fil­ter sys­tem de­vel­oped by JKF In­dus­tri in Den­mark has been con­tin­u­ously de­vel­oped to pro­vide the best pos­si­ble so­lu­tion in terms of safety, op­er­at­ing per­for­mance, en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and long term low cost own­er­ship ac­cord­ing to Ge­off Eb­don, Sales Man­ager from NZDuct+Flex who are JKF’s New Zealand and Aus­tralia Fil­ter Sys­tems dis­trib­u­tor. With hun­dreds sold world­wide, there are now three units work­ing in our mar­ket. The lat­est in­stal­la­tion in Hamil­ton can han­dle a mas­sive air and dust vol­ume of 345,000m3 /hour.

The unique Pow­erPulse clean­ing sys­tem ad­justs the force of the pulse clean­ing be­tween 1.2 and 5 bar pres­sure. Other fil­ters blast the fil­ters with 5+ bar all the time, prov­ing Pow­erPulse of­fers sav­ings of 90 per­cent of com­pressed air.

The three SuperBlower fil­ters of­fer a new level of safety in the in­dus­try. Dust is ex­plo­sive and Dust Fil­ters can (and some­times do) ex­plode, with dev­as­tat­ing con­se­quences for sur­round­ing build­ings and more im­por­tantly staff. The force of the ex­plo­sion can hurl pan­els and small parts like nuts and bolts for hun­dreds of me­tres.

Fol­low­ing cat­a­strophic ex­plo­sions that re­sulted in many deaths and in­juries in the late 80’s, gov­ern­ments in Europe in 2002 (and the USA in 2008), in­tro­duced laws which made ex­plo­sive re­lease mem­branes manda­tory for all dust col­lec­tors. These mem­branes re­lease the ex­plo­sion in a con­trolled man­ner.

How­ever, these mem­branes, whilst en­sur­ing the bulk of the fil­ter re­mains in one piece, still re­lease a fire­ball which can project 50-100 me­tres from the fil­ter, caus­ing dam­age, fires and in­jury to peo­ple.

Ge­off Eb­don from NZDuct+Flex says, “The SuperBlower range of fil­ters in­stalled in New Zealand re­lease any dust ex­plo­sion but only the shock­wave es­capes the fil­ter unit. Uniquely no fire­ball or dust es­capes and the shock­wave is re­leased ver­ti­cally to the sky, not hor­i­zon­tally across the work­site.”

This fea­ture is called VFV ( Ver­ti­cal Force Vent­ing) and is unique to JKF.

There is lit tle chance of dam­age to prop­erty or even the body or con­trols of the fil­ter. If an in­ci­dent oc­curs, usu­ally it is a mat­ter of just hav­ing to re­place the socks and the mem­branes, and your site is back in op­er­a­tion.

Of course all these ex­tra safety fea­tures would nor­mally cost ex­tra, but JKF have de­cided to ab­sorb the devel­op­ment costs and fit this t ype of sys­tem to our SuperBlower and Jet fil­ters at no ex­tra costs. VFV is stan­dard on these units.

Ge­off Eb­don sum­marised the new op­por­tu­nity: “As sup­pli­ers, if we can of­fer a safer sys­tem at the same cost as the less safe ones, in fact legally we must. Our law changes in 2016, mak­ing di­rec­tors, man­agers and su­per­vi­sors per­son­ally re­spon­si­ble for safety means we all have to think care­fully be­fore we ex­pose our­selves to pos­si­ble fu­ture le­gal ac­tion.

“If you can prevent your staff get­ting hurt for no ex­tra cost, why wouldn’t you? “
