Filter elements are the integral component of any dust collector or mist separator and affect the separation efficiency as well as the energy efficiency of the entire extraction system.
The most common filter elements for dry dust collectors are round filter cartridges or filter plates. Both filter types are designed to be cleaned with reverse pulse jet of compressed air, knocking all the particles off the filter media downwards into a collector bin. Mist separators are usually designed with different filter stages for coarse and fine particles. The filter cassettes of the main stage are self-regenerating filters because they are using a gravity drainage effect which allows a discharge or return of the collected lubricants. Both types of filter elements can be equipped with different filter media, each of it providing special properties to ensure best filtration performance on various applications and emissions as well as an optimised filter life. As a filtration company, Camfil develops, manufactures and improves most of the filter elements and filter media in their own production, guaranteeing high-quality filtration solutions. Besides filters for the own brand extraction systems, Camfil offers a wide range of cartridge and flat plate filter elements to retrofit the most common dust extraction systems on the market.
