Modular dust collectors

Farr Gold Series industrial dust collectors remove hazardous and nuisance dusts from production areas while occupying limited floor space. Built from 3.5-ft. square modules, they can be combined in dozens of configurations to fit specific work environments. Each module accommodates airflows up to 5,000 cubic feet per minute using four pleated filter cartridges mounted in a symmetrical frame. The collectors are built from heavy-duty carbon steel, powder coated to provide maximum strength and durability. Filter cartridges are oriented vertically, which provides efficient pulse cleaning of high dust loads.

The modular design enables customized Farr Gold Series dust collectors to be specified, built and shipped quickly, product engineers note. Camfil APC experts work with customers to design the collector needed for their specific applications while minimizing energy usage. Customizable options include: Bag in/bag out containment systems, allowing workers to replace dirty filters without being exposed to dusts, plus self-dumping hoppers.

Farr Gold Series units use the latest filter technologyHemiPleat cartridges with Gold Cone filter inserts. Cartridge pleats remain open and use more filter media, while the Gold Cone insert opens up even more usable space for airflow. Filter cartridges last longer because they capture more dust with a lower pressure drop and release more of that dust during pulse cleaning. They also require less compressed air and demand less energy from the fan motor. — Camfil APC, Jonesboro, Ark., 800/479-6801;
