Camfil Farr Air Pollution Control
Dust collector extends filters’ service lives
The Gold Series High Vacuum (GSHV) dust collector from Camfil Farr Air Pollution Control (Jonesboro, AR) controls emissions in applications performed under pressures as high as 17 in. Hg vacuum or 8 psi. The unit is housed in a reinforced dust-capture vessel designed for use as a central vacuum system, positive or negative product receiver, or high-pressure bin vent. The GSHV collector can be provided with two or four Gold Cone HemiPleat filter cartridges, which are available in efficiencies of 99.99% and 99.999% on 0.5-µm particles.
The machine’s cyclonic tangential inlet removes most of the dust as it enters the collector, thus minimizing filters’ contact with the dust and extending their service lives. The device also includes a pulse-cleaning system that operators regulate through a user-friendly, solid-state control panel. The dust collector is available with a horizontal explosion vent for combustible-dust applications and a bag-in–bag-out access door and continuous liner discharge for pharmaceutical dusts.
