Did you know that Camfil also provides a wide range of high-quality filter cartridges and filter plates to retrofit the most common dust and fume extraction systems on the market? Our retrofit filter elements are designed to not only work in your system but to optimise the performance of your dust extraction system related to efficiency and longer filter lifetime.
Why should I switch to retrofit filters instead of buying filter elements from the original equipment manufacturer? First of all, that´s a legitimate question as usually original parts are perceived as the first choice providing the best performance. But what if these products fall short of expectations, putting your operators at risk and affecting your processes in terms of increased downtimes for maintenance? Hereinafter we have listed some reasons under which circumstances it make sense to think about changing the filter supplier:
Camfil offers a wide range of high-quality filter cartridges and filter plates in different length and diameters as well as with different flanges and gasket options. This allows a direct-fit replacement of the current used filters of the most common dust extraction systems on the market such as Donaldson, Keller, AAF, Nederman, Kemper, Plymovent, Dustcheck, ESTA, Kappa, WAM, Mahle and many more.
Camfil´s retrofit filter elements can be used for various challenging applications in different industries such as:
As dust is not just dust, it is also mandatory to determine the right filter media for each process and dust type. Camfil basically uses two types of filter media, a cellulose/paper media for standard applications and a spunbond/synthetic blend for processes where more durable filters are required. Both media can be treated or layered to provide special properties such as flame retardant, anstistatic, PTFE-membrane or moisture/oil repellent.
HemiPleat technology is, in short, the uniquely, patented media pleating technology Camfil use to create highly efficient filter cartridges that outlast and outperform competitors alternatives. Synthetic beads hold the pleats of the cartridge open exposing more media to the airstream and creating longer-lasting, high-efficiency filter cartridges. The HemiPleat technology lowers a filter’s pressure drop and facilitates a better release of dusts during pulse cleaning. HemiPleat technology is used within Camfil´s range of round and oval filter catridges.
