What Makes DeltaMAXX™ the Best Dust Collector Cartridge Filter

Imperial Systems helps you find the best dust and fume collector system for your manufacturing facility.

Every metalworking environment requires a dust collection system to protect the health of on-site workers and the integrity of all machinery and processes.  Imperial Systems DeltaMAXX™ dust collector cartridge filters are designed to maintain highest performance possible, thereby providing the most comprehensive protection for your facility and related business.  Here are some of the DeltaMAXX™ features which make it the best dust collector cartridge filter on the market:

best dust collector cartridge filterEfficiency

Fabric and bag dust collectors tend to decline in efficiency as they fill, often beginning to expel fine dust at only half capacity. The DeltaMAXX™ design creates a multi-stage dust collection process; because there are several filter cartridges in place, they collect more dust and micron particles than other systems even when the initial stage filter is full. This process completely removes the dust before it can hit the clean air chamber, ensuring that no particles are blown back into the work environment. Multi-stage filters also allow equipment to remain running while the filters are changed out, preventing any disruption in air quality.

Versatility

Single-stage dust collection systems can only be used in limited production scenarios, but DeltaMAXX™ remains the best dust collector cartridge filter by offering a diverse range of applications including pharmaceuticals, food and grain, metalworking and more. With a wide selection of sizes and capabilities, CMAXX™ dust collectors are available as small as portable downdraft benches or as large as foundry operation systems.

Low Maintenance

As other filters fill up, their ability to trap fine particulates diminishes, and cleaning the filter can be a hassle – sometimes requiring up to two hours and two people in dust masks for completion. Conversely, DeltaMAXX™ cartridge dust cartridges are removable, allowing one worker to replace all of the filters at once, a process usually completed in less than one hour.

DeltaMAXX Best Dust Collector Cartridge Filter

The DeltaMAXX™ cartridge filter by Imperial Systems delivers the longest filter life, cleanest air and the greatest cost savings through:

  • The most advanced nanofiber technology on the market
  • Impressive MERV 15 filtration efficiency

Protecting the elements of jet engines from high temperatures and oxidation.  

Even providing electrical insulation for electronic devices.  

These are just a few of the many uses of thermal spray coating technologies.  Your own metalworking business probably has many other uses for the processes, ranging from large scale jobs to highly detailed ones.  Although many different processes and uses fit within the category, they all share similar properties… and risks.  Along with the versatility and usefulness of of thermal spray techniques come the dangers of ultraviolet light, fumes, dust, compressed air, gases.  Are you protecting your operators sufficiently?

At Imperial Systems, we are dedicated to to helping metalworkers like you ensure the safety and efficiency of your workplace.  In this blog, you will find:

  • A clear outline of the risks associated with thermal spray
  • A breakdown of OSHA safety recommendations
  • A valuable solution to reduce the risks of fumes, dust, and gases
  • An opportunity to collaborate with others in the industry about problems and solutions

 

Risks Associated With Thermal Spray Equipment And Use

As mentioned, there are countless uses for thermal spraying processes.  To keep things simple, we’ll start by breaking them down into the different sorts of processes that fall within the category addressed in the blog. In the chart below, you can locate the process or processes used in your own workspace.

There are a number of distinct risks that are associated with each of these types of thermal spraying, including:

  • Ultraviolet Light: Thermal spray systems product UV light, defined as non-ionizing radiation. The spectrum varies depending upon the type of process used.  For example, flame spray processes produce such radiation in the UV-B or erythemal region of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Plasma systems, on the other hand, operate with much greater intensity in the UV-C region.  With prolonged exposure, such radiation can damage the eyes (flash burn), burn the skin, and cause changes in skin cell growth.   
    • Fumes and Dust: Another byproduct of the thermal spray process, dust and fumes created by atomized molten metals, can pose significant health and safety hazards.  Not only do they form a potential combustion risk, but they are also hazardous if inhaled, causing a variety of negative reactions.  
    • Compressed Air: Aside from the well known danger when directed at unprotected skin or eyes, compressed air that is not properly regulated poses a number of other risks. Its noise levels can often cause hearing loss.  Additionally, it is imperative to maintain the good condition of equipment, as damaged hoses can lead to explosion.  
  • Industrial Gases: The list of gases used in thermal spray processes is extensive, including: argon, helium, hydrogen, kerosene, and oxygen, among others. Each of these gases carries with it its own dangers.  Many are flammable, corrosive, or pose the risk of combustion. Additionally, many are toxic when inhaled.

OSHA Safety Recommendations

Recognizing the numerous risks associated with thermal spray processes, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration has outlined a number of regulations and recommendations to keep you, your workers, and your workplaces safe.Screenshot at Feb 16 12-23-42

First and foremost, owners and operators of such spraying equipment should understand and implement the operational procedures outlined by the product’s manufacturer.  Additionally, all of OSHA’s standards on Welding, Cutting and Brazing should be heeded.  Although they are numerous, the outline below will give you a basic idea of what steps can be taken to reduce this risks described above.

  • Ultraviolet Light: Ensure that operators, assistants, and others in the vicinity of thermal spraying use the appropriate protection for their eyes and skin. This clothing should be tightly woven, including both gloves and coveralls.  Additionally, tinted welding curtains and screens can reduce exposure to nearby workers.  
  • Fumes and Dust: To reduce the risk of various dangers associated with fumes and dust, make sure that you have a dust and fume collection system that is fitted to the necessary specifications.  If you are working with toxic materials, HEPA filters may be necessary.  In addition to an industrial dust collection system, it is also important to establish a respiratory protection program for workers, including proper fitting of respirators and regular medical screenings.
    • Compressed Air: In addition to following manufacturer provided safety instructions for any compressed air, be sure to regularly inspect all of your equipment and follow the best practices for use.  Not only will this promote safety for those using it, but it will also ensure the efficiency of the work being done. shutterstock_147565094

 

  • Industrial Gases: Along with the safety precautions described for fumes and dust, it is also important to conduct regular air sampling to determine workers’ exposure to airborne contaminants.  This is especially important when the gases being used in your manufacturing processes are potentially toxic; thermal metal spraying and practices like it can create fumes and gases at concentrations exceeding their Permissible Exposure Limits.

 

 

A Valuable Solution For Thermal Spraying Dusts, Fumes, and Gases

Although some safety precautions–such as eye protection and respirators– may be easy to address, an industrial dust collector is a very different kind of solution.  A larger investment, such collectors require you to take a full assessment of your workplace to determine the specifications you will need.
