DUST FILTRATION

WHAT IS DUST FILTRATION?

Dust filtration is an important part of all processing systems. In the food and pharmaceutical industry, every dust particle is harmful for your process system. High performance filter units and filter elements with special membranes are crucial. These are designed to protect the production process from the smallest interference. Here at F&H, we offer a wide variety of filters for dust collection. This will help you prevent costly downtime and expensive maintenance. All our dust filtration products meet emission regulations and comply within industry guidelines.

Food-safe molded sealing systems, efficient air pollution control elements, dissipative membranes and dead space-free filter elements are just a few examples for the solution of complex system requirements in the pharmaceutical and food industry. Whether automatic filters, de-dusting systems or compact filter elements: FDA and EU 10/2011 approval applies to all filter elements in the pharmaceutical and food industries.

High-quality air filters make an important contribution to the protection of employees and equipment and increases the productivity of processes, which are strongly affected by dust and dirt.

DUST COLLECTOR CARTRIDGES

Cartridge collectors capture the broad spectrum of dust particles that can inhibit the production environment. From portable to central collectors, to source and ambient collectors, to booth-type collectors and weld benches, F&H can source the most complete range of cartridge collectors that cost-effectively enhance productivity and manufacturing efficiency. Dust collector cartridges offer several features and benefits including:

  • Used to help filter out dry, fine dust particles from the air
  • Available in several different kinds of filter materials
  • Recommended in process systems with contamination lower than 100 ppm, or levels lower 0.01% in weight.
  • Higher performance
  • Increased efficiency
  • Longer filter life
  • Greater value

Dust collection using pleated media filter elements known as cartridges has become a ubiquitous solution for industrial ventilation requirements in recent decades. Cartridge dust collection equipment can be grouped into two categories based on cartridge orientation and the cabinet’s airflow design:

  1. A downflow collector design with cartridge filters positioned horizontally and the dirty air inlet positioned above
    all filtration media and
  2. Crossflow or upflow collector designs with cartridge filters hung vertically and the dirty air inlet positioned below or at the side of the filtration media.
