Wherever you’re painting, cutting, sanding, grinding or welding, you need to protect your process, your products and your operators. Keep up to speed with superior air filtration for automotive, aerospace and other vehicle manufacturing processes.
The manufacturing process involves working with a range of materials from leather and plastic to wood and steel. This creates huge build-ups of dust and contaminants that place a strain on basic air filtration systems.
Automotive suppliers use industrial dust removal systems to meet their needs during production. Built-in filter cartridges are regularly cleaned using a compressed air jet. After several cleanings, the filters become torn and the manufacturing process grinds to a halt.
These processes call for a quick, optimum solution to keep the standstill period as short as possible and reduce downtime.
Contamination from metalworking can include heavy dust levels, explosive dusts and molecular pollutants that are responsible for odour, corrosive reactions or toxic threat to operators and the environment. Capturing the dust, smoke, mist or fumes generated during metalworking processes can create a unique challenge.
Paint spraying facilities require a constant supply of fresh air for production quality, hygiene and safety reasons. The airflow design for paint booths seems straightforward, but is often far from uniform. The sheer scale of a production line presents a challenge to obtaining airflow uniformity through the filters and avoiding a wind-tunnel effect from one paint booth to the next. Airflow can be deflected and disrupted – negatively impacting the painting process and the quality of the final product.
From OEMs to suppliers and service providers, some of the biggest names in vehicle manufacturing in the world use Camfil’s products and services in clean air. We offer intake filters, prefiltration, exhaust filters, industrial dust collectors and accessories for any stage on your production line. For paint spray booths, we provide filters for prep stations as well as crossdraft, downdraft and semi-downdraft booths.
Our products are energy-efficient, robust and compact for use in tight spaces. They are the most cost-effective products you’ll find from a lifecycle cost perspective. We customize and optimise all our products for your specific demands.
Dust collectors are most commonly used to capture harmful particles at the source in metalworking applications including welding, robotic welding, laser cutting, plasma cutting and thermal spray.
Overexposure to weld fumes can cause a wide range of health problems. Metal dust particles cause eye irritation, upper respiratory irritation and frequent headaches. Capturing dust and fumes generated during welding presents a unique challenge.
During the painting process, good filtration is crucial for protecting workers from a wide range of particulate and other airborne contaminants being inhaled from the paint booth.
