Space-saving Quad Pulse Package PX can be positioned on the production floor

The new Quad Pulse Package PX dust collector from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) offers high performance in a compact unit designed for pharmaceutical, chemical and other processes that produce hazardous dusts in high concentrations.

Measuring 124.46cm wide x 106.68cm deep x 220.98cm high, the space-saving unit can be conveniently positioned on the production floor; and constructed to provide the highest explosion protection in accordance with ATEX standards, it can be located indoors with no need for additional explosion safety devices.

The collector has a cleanable filter system that facilitates continuous manufacturing processes and eliminates frequent costly filter replacements.

Owing to a segmented cleaning process performed during operation, the Quad Pulse Package requires just a single primary filter cartridge. The high efficiency primary pleated filter comes in a conductive (anti-static) nano fibre or PTFE media and offers exceptional dust release for extended life, energy savings and reduced change-out schedules, the company says. It also prolongs the service life of the second-stage filter, a HEPA H14 based on European Standard EN 1822, which provides 99.995% efficiency to capture the finest, most harmful dust particles. Using materials from the aerospace industry, the HEPA filter functions as a tested flame and contamination barrier. In addition, the pressure-resistant housing maintains integrity with no damage during an explosion event.

Additional features include a user-friendly bag-in/bag-out (BIBO) containment system to ensure safe-change at all stages for hazardous dusts; an integrated fan that provides the required suction and is insulated within the unit for quiet operation; while the indoor installation capability significantly reduces costs and time by simplifying the ducting requirements and also allows easy access for all maintenance functions.

Pharmaceutical applications for the Quad Pulse Package PX collector include tabletting, mixing, blending, granulation, drying, coating, filling and packaging. It is designed for new project installations as well as projects involving the replacement of inefficient, non-ATEX or non-containment compliant dust collectors or vacuum units.
