Camfil APC Wet Scrubbers Help Prevent Combustible Dust Explosions in Metalworking Facilities

Metalworking processes like machining, sawing, grinding, buffing, polishing, fettling, brushing, drilling, cutting and abrasive blasting can create fine metal particles that become airborne and present an explosion hazard, if these metals are combustible. To help reduce this risk, Camfil APC offers Venturi and Vortex wet scrubbers. These high-performance, low-maintenance dust collectors provide a safe way to collect and remove combustible metal dust from the workplace. They are also ideal for metalworking processes that generate sparks.

The Venturi is a high-performance wet scrubber that is ideal for applications with high dust loading. The Venturi injects water via a pump into the inlet of the unit. Then extremely high velocities are generated to mix the scrubbing liquid and the contaminated air stream. The particle-laden droplets are then separated from the airstream by centrifugal force.

The Vortex is a compact and versatile wet scrubber that is ideal for processes that generate sticky or fibrous dusts. It brings the particle-laden air into contact with water, which creates turbulence and atomizes the liquid into fine droplets. These fine droplets are then separated from the airstream by centrifugal force.

Camfil Venturi and Vortex wet scrubbers are also ideal for processes that emit a mixture of dust, gas, aerosols, vapors and fumes.
