Camfil launches easy to use dust collector

It features three models which can handle air flows from 1,000 to 3,000 cfm at 8 inch wg.

The collector comes with two, four or six HemiPleat eXtreme Gold Cone filters with nanofibre media that can meet OSHA permissible exposure limits (PELs) on most metal dusts.

Additional HEPA filter modules can be added to increase efficiency when handling dusts with very low PELs such as hexavalent chromium produced in stainless steel cutting. The use of HEPA after filters also allows indoor recirculation of air in many applications for energy savings. 

Each unit ships completely assembled, wired and ready to plug in and the assembled unit includes all internal electrical connections, an integrated inlet damper, filters, fan and cleaning system. 

Smoke alarm

To safeguard against fire risks, Camfil's Farr GSP collector uses fire retardant filter media, a fire sprinkler in the clean air plenum, and a built-in spark baffle that reduces the chance of spark-generated fires. An optional smoke alarm detects smoke inside the clean air plenum and sends a signal to the controller to shut down the fan as well as the process (such as a cutting table).
