Camfil Farr Australia announces a new cost-saving smart solenoid STR controller designed to simplify pulse-based cleaning of dust collector filters.
Suitable for applications where dust collector filters are pulse-cleaned based on timed intervals, the solenoids come embedded with the timer controls that regulate pulsing, eliminating the need to wire a remote timer board to the solenoid tray.
‘On’ and ‘off’ cycles are easily adjusted through dials integrated into the solenoid tray. Factory settings are 150 milliseconds ‘on’ time with a 30-second ‘off’ cycle between pulses. The smart solenoid controllers are provided with multiple solenoid valves varying from two to six.
Certified according to European normative ATEX (94/9/EC) Category II 3D, the smart solenoid STR controller may be used with any type of cartridge dust collection system that utilises diaphragm valves.
When purchased for use with Farr Gold Series dust collectors, a free Magnahelic gauge is included to monitor pressure drop across the filters.
