The Quad Pulse Package PX dust collector from Camfil Air Pollution Control is a compact unit for processes that produce hazardous dusts in high concentrations, with a cleanable filter system that facilitates continuous manufacturing.

The Quad Pulse Package PX dust collector from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) is a compact unit for processes that produce hazardous dusts in high concentrations. Pharmaceutical applications include tableting, mixing, blending, granulation, drying, coating, filling, and packaging.

The collector has a cleanable filter system that facilitates continuous manufacturing processes and eliminates frequent costly filter replacements. The space-saving unit can be conveniently positioned on the production floor. It is constructed to provide the highest explosion protection in accordance with National Fire Protection Association standards; it can be located indoors with no need for additional explosion safety devices. Indoor installation capability reduces the need for long duct runs and allows easy access for all maintenance functions.

Due to a segmented cleaning process performed during operation, the collector requires a single primary filter cartridge. The high-efficiency primary pleated filter comes in a conductive (anti-static) nanofiber or polytetrafluoroethylene media and improves dust release for extended life, energy savings, and reduced change-out schedules. It also prolongs the service life of the second-stage filter that provides 99.995% efficiency to capture the finest, most harmful dust particles. Using materials from the aerospace industry, the high-efficiency particulate air filter functions as a tested flame and contamination barrier. In addition, the pressure-resistant housing maintains integrity with no damage during an explosion event.

For hazardous dusts requiring full containment to protect workers and prevent cross-contamination, a bag-in/bag-out system is available to ensure safe change at all stages. An integrated fan provides the required suction and is insulated within the unit for quiet operation.
