Handte Vortex Dual

The Vortex Dual wet scrubber is the preferred filtration solution to handle flammable and explosive metal dusts with fine to medium particle diameters as well as sparks with high fire load. The wet scrubber can be used with light to medium dust loads and combines the working principle of the Vortex wet scrubber with the disintegration principle which again increase the separation efficiency.

  • Unique disintegration principle
  • For medium and fine particle diameters
  • High degree of separation
  • No filter elements required
  • Low height, minimal space requirements
  • Dust-free maintenance and repair


The wet scrubber Handte Vortex Dual safely separates explosive metal dusts from the waste gas stream of industrial applications like grinding, brushing, deburring, fettling or manual shot blasting of small components. Besides the metal processing industry, the Vortex Dual wet scrubbers handle pollutants from applications with rubber, leather or plastic fines.
Functional principle of the Handte Vortex Dual wet scrubber:
The Vortex Dual wet scrubber is designed for light to medium dust loads and combines the working principle of the Vortex wet scrubber with the disintegration principle. Here again, the polluted exhaust air is tangentially introduced and creates a vortex sink on the surface of the scrubbing water. This generates an intensive water vortex through which the polluted exhaust air is led. Intensive mixing causes the pollutants to bond to the scrubbing water. In addition, in the second cleaning stage, the high speeds and constant direction changes of the disintegration wheel cause the ultrafine pollutants to bind in the scrubbing water. In the downstream demister unit, the polluted scrubbing water is dispersed onto the outer wall and separated through the high circumferential speeds of the disintegration wheel. Higher separation efficiency is achieved through this functional principle. The purified exhaust air is moved and discharged by the centrally positioned ventilator. The separated pollutants are fully or partially isolated in the collection area of the scrubbing water through sedimentation processes. They can be disposed of using various discharge systems.

Considerations when selecting an equipment supplier for extraction systems

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.
