A new line of Handte EM Profi emulsion mist collectors from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) offers the highest available collection efficiencies, plus the ability to run “24/7” for reduced maintenance, service ease and lower operating costs. The units can handle the heaviest loads encountered in industry to clean up contaminants generated during milling, drilling, tapping, turning, grinding and other machining processes that utilize emulsion mist coolants.
The EM Profi collector uses long-life coarse and fine filter demisters followed by a final-stage HEPA filter with combined efficiencies of 99.9 percent on particles of 0.3 micron and larger. This is much higher than capture efficiencies achieved with fiberglass V-bag filters, which lose efficiency as media becomes saturated. A patented automatic sprayer counteracts emulsion clumping, ensuring that the separators can operate “24/7” almost maintenance-free.
The Handte EM Profi Emulsion Mist Collector
During routine annual maintenance, the unit is easily serviced from the ground by a single technician, eliminating extra manpower and lift equipment. Service life between change-outs is up to six years for demister filters and two years for HEPA filters. Large maintenance doors and quick-clamping elements facilitate fast, tool-less filter replacement. Due to these features, Handte EM Profi collectors achieve substantial savings through reduced downtime, longer change-out cycles and increased productivity and reliability.
Sturdy modular construction is another benefit. Basic modules can handle air volumes from 1,700 – 8,000 cfm, with a wide range of accessories and configurations for optimum flexibility. Modules can be combined to accommodate larger airflow requirements. Small space-saving models are also offered for low airflow applications of 500 – 1,400 cfm.
The Handte EM Profi line combines proven German engineering with U.S. manufacturing expertise. Last year, U.S.-based Camfil APC acquired Handte, the leading German provider of mist collectors, wet scrubbers and other environmental products, with 120+ years of experience and worldwide automaker references. Handte’s offerings complement the equipment offered by Camfil APC, a leading global manufacturer of dust and fume collection systems and part of Camfil, the world’s largest air filtration company.
