Impreglon UK is a globally renowned industrial applicator of fluoropolymer coatings and thermal spray coatings. Their systems, experience and high level of service all support customers' surface technology requirements in many industrial sectors. These include aerospace, chemical processing, pharmaceutical, food, oil, and gas.
When the dust extraction systems in Impreglon‘s production area were no longer keeping up with the increased level of business, a decision was made to replace them.
Camfil APC was recommended to Impreglon based on their worldwide reputation and expertise in dust extraction equipment. The aim was to provide a safe and cost-effective dust extraction solution.
Impreglon needed a solution that could handle the demanding requirements of their applications, in addition to being ATEX compliant. Camfil proposed two of their state-of-the-art Farr Gold Series® dust collectors.
They provided a model GS12S dust collector to control the dust from a lathe. A GS48 dust collector was also installed to provide extraction from a large booth where Impreglon sprayed aluminum and zinc through arc wire, plasma and flame spray methods.
To ensure ATEX compliance, the dust extractors were installed complete with vertical discharge explosion relief panels and flame retardant HemiPleat® Gold Cone filter cartridges. The HemiPleat Gold Cone filter cartridges offer high-efficiency filtration, extended filter life, and easy maintenance.
Impreglon is committed to being an environmentally friendly company. Therefore, the fans on the dust collectors include variable speed drives to minimise energy consumption and further improve filter life.
The customer is pleased with the new installation, which meets their sustainability requirements for a low impact and energy saving solution. Furthermore, the new solution helps them provide a safer working environment as well as an efficient and low maintenance dust extraction system.
