Polex Environmental Engineering’s high vacuum extraction system is suitable for machining of carbon fibre components.
Polex Environmental Engineering recently supplied an extraction system for Marand Precision Engineering in Moorabbin Victoria for installation at Boeing.
Dust extraction was required as a result of dust generated from machining of carbon fibre parts. This dust is both harmful to process operators and potentially harmful to the environment.
Polex Environmental Engineering designed and supplied a reverse pulse bag type dust extraction system with a 400 m3/h airflow capacity, 5 m2 filter area, 5.5 kW side channel blower, discharged into an 80L bin, and a direct on line control box with a capacity of 5.5 kW. The high vacuum dust collection unit is mounted to the machine and ducted to the source of the dust.
Polex Environmental Engineering high-vacuum reverse-pulse dust collectors are constructed from 3mm and 5mm thickness, fully welded mild steel with a powdercoat finish.
The filters are made from Gortex Polyester Needlefelt to increase filtration efficiency. These dust collectors have a 24VDC solenoid pulse valve and a 24VDC electronic pulse controller. This provides increased electrical safety for service and maintenance. Polex high vacuum reverse pulse bag type dust collectors can be manufactured to suit specific space constraints.
