Challenge

Creator Teknisk Utveckling AB takes on assignments to develop a product and they contribute primarily with two things: Creativity and methodology. Creator always strives to be a partner that both leads and contributes to an efficient implementation to create profitability and competitiveness.

Creator contacted Camfil Svenska for a filtration solution for lead. Peter Berg, the Camfil Svenska Salesman, directly understood that it was an APC application and contacted Camfil APC Nordic.

Lead is a poison and the fume extraction had to be efficient to ensure that all fumes are removed from the production area.

Solution

Camfil APC evaluated the application and made a proposal based on a canopy hood solution and a Farr Gold Series GS04 dust collector.

Creator accepted the offer and APC delivered the dust collector and design for the canopy hood and duct system.

Farr GS4 dust collector in service on the lead fume application.

Lead and dust are disposed of in a 210-liter standard drum. The dust hopper is equipped with a shut-off valve to ensure no leakage of air and dust during a drum exchange.

The cleaned air is released outside the factory into the environment. The Gold Cone Hemipleat® filter element ensures that the air is nearly 100% lead-free.

The unit has been in operation since January 2010 and works very well.

This installation is the first pilot plant and Creator expects two additional identical installations in the near future.
