Portable Dust And Fume Collector Has Three-Stage Filtration
Farr Air Pollution Control (APC) has introduced an updated portable dust and fume collector that combines three-stage filtration with versatility and ease of use, according to the company. The Zephyr III collector comes with a choice of three main filters and is said to be ideal for portable handling of industrial process contamination, source capture or periodic dust collection at various locations. Applications include welding fumes, grinding dusts, dry dusts, soldering fumes and other airborne particles.
Equipped with large wheels and brakes for easy movement and positioning, the Zephyr III collector is a self-contained unit: The user simply plugs in the 110v/1 Ph. 60 Hz power cord and compressed air line, installs the fume arm, and the unit is ready to capture dust and fumes. Contaminants entering the collector are removed by three stages of filtration: a metal filter that functions as a spark trap, a main filter for fine particle removal, and a carbon final filter for odors and gases.
The user can select from three main filters: the award-winning Gold Cone HemiPleat filter with fire retardant media in either standard efficiency (MERV 12 or 99.99% on 0.5 micron and larger particles) or high efficiency (MERV 16 or 99.999% efficiency); or a DuraPleat washable filter (MERV 12 or 99.99% efficiency). A Venturi-assisted pulse cleaning system can be manually activated at any time.
