A customer in the recycling industry that deals with glass asked us to provide an aspiration system for conveyors and a sieve machine. The scope of supply was the filter and all key components needed for a complete aspiration system.

The challenge

As glass dust is very abrasive, it can create wear and tear on filter bags. Our challenge was to ensure the system delivered sufficient air volume to extract glass dust, using as little energy as possible. In addition, the customer required that the filter be installed outdoors with service access.

The solution

We supplied a filter with construction form 12, and an inner chamber to protect the filter bags from damage from glass dust. The filter is equipped with differential pressure cleaning so that the bags are only cleaned when a set point pressure level is reached.

The value

As well as reducing wear and tear on filter bags, our solution for the customer saves consumption of compressed air – and therefore energy. We installed the filter with the Simatek service platform to allow easy access for service and filter bag changes.
