How are our EKO-FILTR dust collectors made?
Solid, efficient and safe dust collector is a must element of every production plant with dusted air. In the offer of Filtrowent we have prepared numerous solutions – one of which is unique in terms of its universal application – the dust collector of our EKO-FILTR series. Let’s see how they are made.
A characteristic feature of our EKO-FILTR dust collectors is their modular structure. The main construction element of that device is a filtrating unit, in which the filter bags responsible for filtrating the air are located. The dust collector can theoretically consist of any number of the filtrating units (modules) – the only limitation in practice is the efficiency of the system and available space. An important advantage of our dust collectors is the possibility of their extension by additonal modules, which increases the efficiency of the entire device. This feature is especially significant if you expect that the efficiency need of your production may grow in time. Extending the existing dust collector by adding new modules is less expensive than replacing it with a completely new device. Modules are availabe in two versions:
- single (narrow) module of 1360 x 1360 mm
- double (wide) module of 2720 x 2720 mm
How modules are constructed?
Every module consists of the following elements:
- Exhaust fans chamber
- Cleaning system chamber
- Filtration chamber with filter bags
- Dirty air inlet and expansion chamber
The discharge hopper is used for waste discharge from the dust collector. Here are the emptying methods for our EKO-FILTR dust collectors:
- ODP/JET-K – emptying directly into bins
- ODP/JET-S – emptying through a rotary valve
- ODP/JET-TSO – emprtying with the use of a screw conveyor and a rotary valve
Filter cleaning systems
Filter bags require regular cleaning in order to keep their full flow capacity. In our EKO-FILTR dust collectors one of the following methods of filter fabrics cleaning can be used:
- MW – shaking mechanism – cleaning of filter bags is possible only during the breaks from work of the dust collector
- WR – with the use of regenerative fans – cleaning can take place during normal operation of the dust collector and during breaks from work
- MWZ – shaking mechanism together with regenerative fans – cleaning can take place during normal operation of the dust collector and during breaks from work.
Compliance with the Atex directive
In some production plants such as wood or paper processing plants – there is a high risk of explosion atmosphere occurence. If the dust concentration reaches a level between the lower and upper explosive limit, an accidental ignition may cause violent fire and explosion. In such places, dust collectors have to be produced in accordance with the requirements of the ATEX directive. Filtrowent International specializes in such solutions for industry.
