When it comes to any aspect of manufacturing, a clean, safe workplace is absolutely essential for both the workers and productivity.
Airborne paper dust, aerosols, oil mist, ink dust, ozone and the eye, throat and skin irritations which can lead to permanent hyper sensitivity and contamination within the production process could lead to product recall, production loss, financial loss, fall in consumer confidence or can also be an explosion risk in case of certain dust particles like flour, sugar or timber dust.
The Eximo SpeedLock modular dust collector comes in 3 models such as the Rotor Collector, the Bag Collector and the Screw Collector.
The Rotor Collector comes with a bag filter, which is emptied by way of a rotary valve. It is designed for small applications and comes with a standard filter media or a 401gm polyester bag. Made from 1.25 to 2.0mm galvanised plate steel, it can be installed inside or outside.
The Bag Collector is also designed for smaller applications and can be installed inside or outside and is made from 1.25 to 2.0mm galvanised plate steel. The collector comes with fire dampeners with a 69 degrees Celsius safety fuse and a micro switch connected to the main fan.
The Screw Collector is a bag type filter, which is emptied by a screw conveyor mounted in the middle of the unit. It is designed for large particles as well as high air and waste volumes. Air is brought into the collector through the bottom side of the unit or through separate inlet module.
As with the first two models, this version is made from 1.25 to 2.0mm galvanised plate steel and it also comes with fire dampeners with a 69 degrees Celsius safety fuse and a micro switch connected to the main extraction fan.
The new modular dust collectors have several other advantages. These dust collectors use positive pressure (blowing) rather than negative press, (sucking), which makes them more effective and easier to clean. Also, they are modular, allowing an unlimited number of units to be bolted next to each other, allowing for easy installation and, if required, expansion when a business moves or grows.
Because these systems use an 14-bag configuration rather than the standard 25-bag one, they have a much greater air flow throughput the bag assembly, meaning less power usage and costs and the bags will also last much longer, which in turn means less downtime for replacing the bags and less cost to the company. These dust collectors will also save an average of 50 to 60% on the dust collections costs.
The industries that would benefit from the Eximo SpeedLock modular dust collection system include mining, food manufacturing, wood machining, chemical production, assembly plants, bulk handling areas, agricultural industries, papermaking, plastics, steelmaking, welding, cutting and other manufacturing sectors.
The features of the Eximo modular dust collectors include:
- Corrosion resistant
- Less dust bag replacement required
- Modular and can be simply bolted together
- Have usage in almost every industry
- Quality designed and engineered
- Quiet running
- Use positive pressure and not negative pressure
- Easy cleaning
- Low running costs
