Dust collection systems: Camfil APC

April 29, 2013

Camfil-Farr-042913-body.jpgThe company’s new dust collector hoppers fit low-profile applications.

Camfil APC has introduced two new dust collector hoppers for use where space constraints dictate the use of a low-profile dust collection system. Designed to fit Farr Gold Series® cartridge dust collectors, the Low Pro hopper is best suited to collection of dust and fumes from cutting, blasting, welding and thermal spray operations; while the Low Boy hopper is for use with heavier dust-loading applications involving a variety of dry dusts. Depending on the model chosen, the low-profile hoppers can reduce overall collector height by as much as 36” (91.4 cm).

The Low Pro hopper comes with either a 55 gallon (208 liter) drum or half-size drum. It is available with a Quick Seal drum lid mechanism that readily latches open and shut to expedite emptying or change-out of the drum and exerts heavy mechanical pressure on the lid in the closed position, creating a tight gasketed seal that prevents dust migration.  The hopper is best suited to free-flowing dust and fume particles generated by metalworking processes such as laser and plasma cutting, blasting, welding and some thermal spray operations.

The Low Boy hopper consists of a clamp-on angled hopper and low-profile bin. The unit is designed for collection of heavier bulk density dusts such as those generated during cement and limestone processing, woodworking, and other dry solid handling operations.
