Camfil Dust Collection Expert Explains – How To Determine The Right Filter Media For Your Application – Camfil APC


Riverdale, 11/09/2021 / Camfil USA /

There are two basic factors to consider when specifying dust collector filter cartridges: media type and fabrication technology.

Filter media is the material used in the cartridge to capture dust particles.

To help you better understand which type of filter is right for your application, we’ve outlined a few of the most common types of dust and the best type of filter for those applications.

To prevent filters from becoming overloaded with sticky dusts, select a filter with media that has been treated with an oleophobic coating.

If your operations involve any of these tasks, your dust should be tested for flammability and burnability to determine if flame-retardant filter media is necessary.

Dust testing will also determine the ignition energy so you know if you require media coated with a conductive aluminized finish.

STATICALLY CHARGED DUST. Some dusts, like dry food dust, fumed silica dust, PVC dust or toner dust, create static electricity while being collected and moved through the dust collector.

For nuisance dusts, it is generally safe to use a standard filter media made from nonwoven or cellulosic blend treated with a material to provide moisture resistance.

Camfil APC filter cartridges are designed to capture the maximum amount of dust and air pollutants and then release them thoroughly when pulse cleaned.

Using the correct filter media creates a safer, cleaner work environment with less dust collector maintenance.
