Camfil Farr Australia announces the launch of a new range of packaged fume and dust collectors delivering high performance, safety and ease of use in metal cutting operations.

The new Farr Gold Series Package (GSP) dust collector provides high performance capture of dust and fumes generated by CNC laser and plasma cutters. Available in a choice of compact but powerful models handling air flows from 1,000 to 3,000 cfm at 8-in. wg, the collector comes fully assembled and pre-wired with two, four or six HemiPleat eXtreme Gold Cone filters featuring nano fibre media to handle the toughest dust challenges, and meeting or exceeding OSHA permissible exposure limits (PELs) on most metal dusts.

Efficiency of the dust collectors can be further increased by adding extra HEPA filter modules, especially when handling dusts with very low PELs such as hexavalent chromium produced in stainless steel cutting. The use of HEPA after filters also allows indoor recirculation of air in many applications for energy savings.

The Farr Gold Series Package dust collector is designed for plug and play performance with each unit supplied fully assembled, wired and ready to plug in, complete with all internal electrical connections, an integrated inlet damper, filters, fan and cleaning system.

Fire risks are minimised in the Farr GSP collector with the use of fire retardant filter media, a fire sprinkler in the clean air plenum, and a built-in spark baffle that reduces the chance of spark-generated fires. An optional smoke alarm detects smoke inside the clean air plenum and sends a signal to the controller to shut down the fan as well as the process.

Key design features of the Farr Gold Series Package (GSP) dust collectors include small footprint with top-mounted fan saving on floor space; access to all components on the front side of the collector (except the two-cartridge model) for ease of use; diaphragm valves mounted low for maintenance accessibility; and discharge system featuring a 20-gallon drawer on casters to slide easily in and out using a cam-operated lift system.
