Being in the manufacturing industry, you know that virtually every process creates some type of dust, mist or fume. It is important to protect employees and equipment on a day-to-day basis. Air filtration started in industrial facilities to protect the HVAC system and increase the yield in processes, thereby increasing profit dollars.
Large particles produced from machinery, fine particles consistent with any process that involves high activity in process or with people and gaseous contaminants are all problems that may be addressed with air filtration. Here we can show you how to protect your workers, equipment and processes in any facility.
Did you know Camfil have a full range of retrofit filters that can be utilised in all the most common brands on the market. Camfil filters are not just designed to work but to optimise your dust extraction systems performanceManufacturing and Machinery Food and beverage Life science and healthcare Energy and Power Systems
Processes in manufacturing facilities often generate dust and fumes which for example can pose health risks for your operators or compromise the quality and safety of your products. Determining the right capture and filtration solution helps to protect against the main risks of uncontrolled emissions and thus to create safe work environments.
Austrian metalworking company turned to Camfil because they were not satisfied with the performance of their existing extraction system. Camfil´s Gold Series X-Flo dust & fume collector equipped with Dura-Pleat filter cartridges now provides a highly reliable solution for their 24/7 operation while reducing costs for filter replacement and maintenance.
Dust collection systems are an important part of any manufacturing process, so they need to be sized and designed properly. One critical design component is specifying the proper filtration media, which requires analysis of the dust in the process and all operating conditions.
Metalworking facilities, especially those which perform large-scale fabrication, must be diligent in controlling harmful emissions in the workplace. Removing dusts, fumes and mist generated by various processes is a must for good housekeeping, worker safety, equipment reliability and regulatory compliance including environmental legislation.
Dust collectors are necessary safety systems in many manufacturing and processing plants, thus as in the food processing industry. But if they are not designed, installed and maintained properly, these systems themselves can cause serious problems. In this eBook we highlight 10 ways how to make sure your dust collection system is up to the tasks of keeping workers safe, maximising production uptime and meeting regulatory compliance.
A properly designed and installed dust collection system will effectively catch, convey and separate hazardous and nuisance dusts. Our new ePoster pinpoints key areas to watch and signs to look for that will help you avoid problems with your dust collection system and to keep up process availability in your production facility.
Almost all industrial manufacturing, processing or packaging applications generate dust as a side effect. Many of these dusts are both combustible as well as explosive, and removing them from the work place can significantly reduce the risk of serious accidents. It is estimated that there are approximately 2,000 dust explosions in Europe annually. Most of these are minor but some are very destructive. So by extracting the dust, the risk in the production is reduced, but unless the extraction system is safe the risk is just moved.
Dust collection systems are all safety devices and thus state-of-the art modern methods of validation and certification are required. Furthermore it is vital to ensure that the system is still in compliance after perhaps changed process conditions, to provide maximum safety for personnel and the facility. It is also recommended to carry out quality audits, process reliability surveys and annual safety inspections.
Welding, grinding and laser/plasma cutting processes produce huge amounts of fine PM1 particles and various harmful gases that cannot be removed from the indoor air by ventilation alone.
These airborne particles of metalworking fluids must be extracted directly from the work area to avoid spreading to the ambient air when opening the doors of the tooling machine.
Metalworking facilities must be diligent in controlling harmful dust and fumes, especially those that contain harmful metal particulates from processes such as welding, thermal cutting, sanding and polishing. To better understand what should be considered when handling dust and fumes in metal processing we have created an ebook with 7 tips as a free download.
The potential for a combustible dust explosion is a reality in any industrial manufacturing facility. But operations with processes that generate combustible metal dusts are especially at risk and require special consideration when selecting an equipment supplier. Camfil´s new eBook lists seven important considerations for determining whether a dust collector equipment supplier has the knowledge necessary to keep your operation safe and compliant.
Dyna Mig had a competitor dust collector solution that regularly caused costly downtime. With the help of Camfil’s expertise and a flagship Camfil Gold Series GSX dust collector system, Dyna Mig was able to eliminate all unscheduled downtime and cut their heating costs to a minimum – as well as work safer.
Camfil has provided container manufacturer AMG with a much more effective dust and fume extraction system offering higher filtration rates. A system that is also more sustainable thanks to reduced energy consumption and longer filter lifetime.
Dealing with airborne odours, toxins and gases can be a big challenge. Learn about how Molecular Contamination Control and how it can protect against the harmful effects of these airborne contaminants.
Frequent pressure and short filter replacement intervals led to high operational costs. Camfil's Cam-Flo air intake pre-filters and CamGT EPA air filters met their goal of 8000 hours of life and reduced pressure drop by 50%.
Egat North, the largest energy producer in Thailand, upgraded to Hi-Flo and CamClose air intake pre-filters as well as CamGT final EPA air filters and lowered degradation by 70%, reduced water wash requirements, and saved approximately $1.24M USD per year.
Case Study: Camfil APC was approached by the company to recommend suitable mist extraction equipment with the provision that it was easy to maintain.
A repeal of the Clean Power Plan, lead by no less than the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) itself, could very well drive a spike in demand for commercial air filters.
Hinkley Point C in Somerset, United Kingdom is amongst the safest and most efficient nuclear power generator that is type of a Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR). With hundreds of megawatts electrical production in planning, safety of the process becomes a key concern.
Clean Air For Leading Beverage Manufacturer. Air is the only ingredient involved in every aspect of food and beverage manufacturing. Air comes into contact with products from storage of goods all way to packaging. How can we help to keep your food processes safe?
Case Study: Gold Series Blasts Competitor Dust Collector. JPW Companies offers a wide variety of products built to last for manufacturing companies. Installed on a blasting machine, JPW Companies originally installed a competitor's dust collector to manage the facility.
During the process of removing the four, 28 meter high boilers, a lot of environmentally harmful materials must be handled, and the demolition process will create dust and smoke, which cannot be spread outside the building.
GSX collectors are ideal for use in pharma, mining, food and chemical processing industries. They also provide a safer work environment in metalworking applications like welding and cutting.
