Choosing Cartridge Dust Collector Filters for Processing Applications

Cartridge dust collection systems are the preferred technology for most dry processing applications today, and there are many different pleated filter cartridges available for these collectors. As you face stricter air quality and combustible dust regulations, coupled with tighter internal cost controls, choosing and using the best dust collector filter for your process is more important than ever.

Making an informed choice can improve your collector’s dust capture efficiency and reliability while reducing energy and maintenance requirements. Read this article to help you make a more informed decision when selecting filter for your system.

Coatings Applicator Adds New Layer of Safety and Cost Effectiveness with Dust Extraction System

Impreglon UK is a globally renowned industrial applicator of fluoropolymer coatings and thermal spray coatings. Their systems, experience and high level of service all support customers‘ surface technology requirements in many industrial sectors. These include aerospace, chemical processing, pharmaceutical, food, oil and gas.

The existing dust extraction systems in Impreglon‘s production area were no longer keeping up with the increased level of business so a decision was made to replace them.

The aim was to get a safe and cost-effective dust extraction solution that could handle the demanding requirements of Impreglon‘s applications, as well as being ATEX compliant.

The dust collectors installed outside the factory providing more space, less noise and a cleaner working environment.

A dust collector was provided to control the dust from a lathe. Another dust collector was installed to provide extraction from a large booth where Impreglon sprayed aluminium and zinc by way of arc wire, plasma and flame spray methods.

To ensure ATEX compliance, the dust extractors were installed complete with vertical discharge explosion relief panels and flame retardant filter cartridges.

Impreglon is committed to being an environmentally friendly company. Therefore, the fans on the dust collectors are fitted with variable speed drives to minimise energy consumption and further improve filter life.
