Industrial Dust Collection System Offers High Efficiency

The Gold Cone X-Flo Filter Cartridge from Camfil APC stays cleaner and lasts longer than conventional pleated filters.

The Gold Cone X-Flo (GCX) Filter Cartridge from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) is designed for high-efficiency industrial dust collection. Building on the company’s HemiPleat Gold Cone technology, GCX filters stay cleaner and last longer than conventional pleated filters.

The filter cartridges use a proprietary inner pleat pack with an open-bottomed, inner-cone of media that greatly expands the usable surface area of the cartridge. Because the HemiPleat design exposes more media to the airstream, more dust is loaded on the filter and released during pulse cleaning. These filters are available in a selection of regular or nano-fiber media to meet particle emission requirements.

GCX filters were designed specifically for Camfil APC's new Gold Series X-Flo (GSX) dust collector. The unique location of the filter in the collector enables more downward-facing media than standard, competitive systems. The cone is configured so that pulsed air is evenly distributed top to bottom along the outer pack of the filter and down through the inner cone pack. That means with each pulse, the cone cartridge ejects more dust out of the collector, straight down to the hopper. This design offers an advantage over horizontal-style filters that pulse most of the dust back onto adjacent filters. Used together, the GSX collector and GCX filter system maximizes airflow while minimizing filter change-outs, compressed air usage, and energy costs.
