Chemical Processing: Pair of Gold Series® at a Battery Component Manufacturer

Chemical Processing: Pair of Gold Series® at a Battery Component Manufacturer

Added to MTDCNC by Camfil APC Ltd on 21 July 2016

Entek International limited, manufacture battery separators at their
high-tech factory in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. They had two DCE Sintamatic
dust collectors, each serving several manufacturing lines.

These dust collectors are critical to the manufacturing process as the
plant runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with only a two week planned
shutdown in the summer for maintenance. The existing Sintamatic dust
collectors had a very high pressure drop and carried over large
quantities of dust. The filter elements were also extremely expensive and
time consuming to replace.

Entek chose Camfil Gold Series® dust collectors ahead of strong
competition because of the high efficiency and low pressure drop of
the HemiPleat® filter cartridges. This together with the extremely quick
filter change of the Gold Series and the low cost of replacement filters,
compared to the DCE Sintamatic units, made the Gold Series the obvious
choice, with payback being as little as one year.

Another big advantage was that the new system allowed Entek to recover
solvent that was present in the air stream. This was not possible with the
old DCE Sintamatic units due to the high carryover of dust.

Camfil APC designed, installed and commissioned two nearly
identical systems, each of which included a GS08 Gold Series collector
with HemiPleat® cartridges, a fully programmable compressed air cleaning
system with compressed air saver and twin hoppers fitted with motorised
rotary valves. A Camfil HEPA system was fitted after the dust
collectors as a back-up filter.

Both systems have been in operation for years and the customer is
extremely happy with the performance of the Gold Series® collectors.
In addition to handling the installation, the Camfil service team
monitors and maintains the dust collection systems under their Aftercare
