Dust Collectors for Rubber Grinding

Farr Gold Series® on Dust from Rubber Grinding Applications

Oil content, hydrocarbon hazards and process heat are no challenge for the Farr Gold Series.

Typical Rubber Dust Generating Processes

  • Tire manufacturing
  • Tire recycling
  • Tire retreading
  • Rubber manufacturing
  • Rubber recycling
  • Automotive parts production

Special considerations for rubber dust:

  • Oils
  • Heat
  • Hydrocarbons

Rubber grinding applications pose multiple challenges for industrial dust collectors. Oils in the rubber are typically the biggest problem. In horizontal cartridge collectors, the filters get saturated and the pleats fail. Heat is also an issue as hot pieces of materials can lay into the horizontal cartridges and burn the filter media. Rubber grinding dust has an explosive nature, and there are also hazards having to do with the hydrocarbons being released.

HemiPleat Breathable Media Pleats

The Farr Gold Series offers the best solution for dust and fume collection in rubber grinding applications. With its vertical cartridge design, oil is not prone to soak the media. Vertical, wide pleats allow easy discharge of heaving loading rubber dust and large rubber particles. The Farr Gold Series offers an optional spark trap inlet design and explosion vents. HemiPleat® High Efficiency (HE) filters capture the smoke associated with the rubber grinding process.
