Replacement Dust Collector Cartridge Filters

Need replacement dust collector cartridge filters?  Think Deltamaxx™!

A metalworking plant requires the use of quality dust collector systems, and efficient industrial dust collector filters to protect metal fabricators from the dangers they face daily.  What are your essential needs when looking for replacement filters for your dust collector?  As a metalworking business owner your needs are simple. You want replacement dust collector cartridge filters that will give you the security you need while providing you with the savings you want.

In the last 30 years, there have been over 700 injured and 119 deaths due to combustible dust incidents in all forms of manufacturing according to the U.S. Chemical Safety Board.  In order to combat such tragedies, we go above and beyond the safety guidelines established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Imperial Systems has spent 15 years of our business innovating dust collector industrial filters, and we continue to improve in order to stay one step ahead of your needs.

The Advantage of our DeltaMAXX™ Replacement Dust Collector Filters

  • Up to Twice the Filter Life
  • Advanced NanoFiber Technology
  • A Superior MERV 15 Filtration Efficiency
  • Lower Operational Mass Emissions
  • Less Pulse Cleaning
  • Highest Quality Pleated Media – 99.9% Efficiency .3 to .5 Micron
  • Best Surfacing Loading Performancereplacement dust collector cartridge filters

While these advantages are certainly impressive, how does it translate into the safety and savings you need for your metalworking business?

The nanofiber technology that is used in our filters stops submicron particles from entering and becoming embedded into the media beneath the nanofiber. This gives our filters a higher efficiency rating due to the nanofiber technology being 50% smaller than competitive fibers, thus improving our DeltaMAXX™ filters filtration (.3-.5 Microns).  This allows for a lower resistance to airflow due to our impressive surface loading technology and enhanced dust cake release.

Metalworkers benefit from the added safety of our surface loading technology by reducing their exposure to toxins. The best surface loading technology has less dust build up. Less buildup of dust requires fewer pulses, and fewer pulses means reduced emissions and fewer safety hazards.

With our filters requiring fewer pulses this decreases the stress they are under and increases the life of the filter. In fact, our DeltaMAXX™ industrial dust collector filters pulse up to 94% less often than our competitors. The advantages of our DeltaMAXX™ filters give you longer filter life, increased efficiency and increased savings.

Nanofiber Filters Served With Sawdust?

SHOULD YOU SERVE NANOFIBER WITH SAWDUST? A CHART FOR THE DISCRIMINATING FILTER HOST

 

Most everyone knows you can’t just go mixing any kind of filter with any kind of dust. After all, some of them certainly don’t pair well together. Fortunately, we here at Imperial Systems have put together a guide for the thoughtful buyer of dust collection filters. With this handy reference, you’ll never have to worry about showing up with the wrong filter for the occasion!

 

(NOTE: We DO NOT recommend that this be used as a substitute for consulting with an actual filter expert. Please call us At 800-918-3013 for important information that doesn’t fit in an infographic.)

A BIT OF CLARIFICATION:

  • Filter bags, or sometimes cyclones, are usually used for materials that are large, fibrous, or big enough to damage a cartridge filter. Bags are also often used when the temperature or humidity is too high for a cartridge filter to handle.

 

  • Metalworking or welding produce fumes. These are very fine particles and an 80/20 media is not efficient enough to catch them. Since many metal dusts are explosive, we do recommend a DeltaMAXX™ nanofiber FR, which is fire retardant. In some applications such as shot blasting, spunbond is used because it is very durable. If your metal fume or dust has grease or oil in it, you may need a special media.

 

  • Dust from ANY of these categories can be explosive. If your dust is explosive or flammable, we will almost always recommend a DeltaMAXX™ nanofiber FR filter as part of an IDA system.

 

  • Organic dust, like food products, may present some special challenges. Organic dust comes in different sizes, and may clump together, absorb moisture, or present other particular problems. Please consult with us about the characteristics of your particular dust.

 

  • If your dust is oily, abrasive, wet, sticky, or otherwise likely to make a mess of a normal dust collector filter, there are a variety of special materials to help. PTFE resists having anything stick to it, while hydrophobic or oleophobic filters will repel water or oil.

 

AGAIN… THIS IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO SUBSTITUTE FOR TALKING TO A FILTER PROFESSIONAL. PLEASE CONSULT WITH ONE OF OUR KNOWLEDGEABLE TEAM MEMBERS BEFORE MAKING ANY QUESTIONABLE FILTER DECISIONS.

Winter Maintenance: Be Prepared!

Your dust and fume collector can save you money on heating this winter. But to make the most of those savings, your system might need some winter maintenance. It’s that time of year when your dust collector system needs a little attention to make sure it’s ready for the demands of colder weather.

 

 

  • REPLACING THOSE FILTERS

 

Winter maintenance means you’re going to want to start the new year with clean new filters… and you’re not going to want to be stuck changing them in the middle of a snowstorm.

 

  • CHANGING THE MAGNAHELIC GAUGE FILTER

 

It’s easy to forget about this little filter, but it’s necessary to keep the gauge readings accurate, and should be replaced whenever you replace your other filters.

 

  • CHECK FOR ACCUMULATED DUST

If you’ve been working with the doors open during the warmer months and not running the dust collector as much, you might have dust accumulated, especially in high places or flat surfaces. For safety, try to remove as much of it as possible.

 

  • CHECK AIRLOCK WIPERS AND BEARINGS

Airlock wipers should usually be changed once a year. Worn-out wipers don’t do their job properly. Winter maintenance is a good time to check them. When you replace wipers, you should also plan to replace the bearings.

 

  • CHECK HEATERS ON PULSE VALVES

If you’re in a cold area and your pulse valves have heaters to keep them from freezing up, make sure they’re working. Frozen pulse valves are an inconvenience nobody needs to deal with in frigid weather.

 

  • CHECK SOLENOID AND DIAPHRAGM VALVES

Again, these are not things you want to have breaking in the middle of nasty winter weather. A quick check and some preventative maintenance if necessary can save you a headache later.

 

  • CHECK COMPRESSED AIR HOSES

Cold can make hoses more brittle and likely to break. If your compressed air hoses have any weak spots or look worn or damaged, now is a good time to make sure they get fixed or replaced.

 

  • CHECK SEALS AND GASKETS

As with the hoses, cold can make seals and gaskets crack or develop leaks. If any of them need replaced, doing it before the weather gets cold can save you from dealing with downtime from an unexpected leak.

 

  • CALIBRATE DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE GAUGE

If you have the tools to do it, this is a good time to calibrate the differential pressure gauge and make sure you’re getting accurate readings. These gauges need calibrated occasionally to give you the most accurate information

 

  • CHECK YOUR DUST COLLECTOR ROOF

 

If you’re a CMAXXTM owner, lucky you! Your domed CrownTechTM roof will keep snow or ice from piling up on top of the collector. If you don’t have a CMAXXTM, make sure you keep an eye on the amount of snow or ice buildup, since that can cause leaks into the collector.

Spark Trap Safety System: Protect your Dust Collector

Extinguish the threat of explosions with a Spark Trap safety system.

While it is imperative that every metalworking facility have highly efficient dust collection systems, it is just as crucial that metalworking facilities utilize a spark trap safety system to provide even greater protection from these combustible hazards.

spark trap safety systemWe have dedicated over a 15 years to preventing and reducing fires and explosions in metalworking and manufacturing facilities. We also continually strive to meet and exceed the standards recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.  Our company also meets the guidelines set out by the National Fire Protection Association with our highly efficient dust collection systems and replacement cartridge filters.

If you’re asking yourself if a spark trap is really necessary– the answer is yes! Consider the findings of the OSHA’s National Emphasis Program.  It shows that metal dust accounts for 20% of explosions nationwide. Also, 7% of ignition sources are ignited by fabricated metals while another 8% of ignition sources are caused by Primary metals. If you want to reduce the possibility of an accident at your metalworking facility, you MUST invest in spark arrestors!

How Can  Spark Trap Safety Systems Reduce Explosions?

Adding a spark trap to your industrial dust collection system is like adding a security system to your home. You already have the proper amount of protection with locks, but installing a security system in your home provides another line of defense, keeping you and your family safe.

Our spark trap, named Spark Arrestor, is the first line of defense in protecting your metal fabricators and your metalworking facility from explosions.  Spark Arrestors extinguish nearly every spark before it enters into the main containment unit where combustible dust and other flammable material collects. When you choose our Spark Arrestors, you’ll receive a quality product made with heavy duty materials that is highly effective at keeping sparks from entering your industrial dust collector.

Here are some key features you’ll receive when you invest in our spark traps:

  • Maintenance free components
  • Fully welded construction
  • Easy install for any system
  • No moving parts
  • Available in carbon steel or stainless steel
  • Can be installed in horizontal or vertical configurations
  • Available in 6in. – 40in.
  • Clean out door
  • Doesn’t require water


Spark Trap Optional Features include:

  • Raw inlet and outlet edges
  • A clamp together function for clamping duct
  • Rolled angle flange for bolt together duct

Industrial Dust Control Solutions: Why It Matters

Whether you are a new manufacturing business or just branching out into new territory, if you are going to get into the metalworking field, addressing industrial dust control solutions demand some serious consideration. Not only do you have the safety of your work space to think about, but unchecked dust and fumes can also pose health hazards to those working in it. We’ve spent nearly 15 years considering the challenges of industrial dust accumulation and control, and we have developed the solutions our customers need.  Discover the facts you need about dust control for your business to keep things running safely and smoothly.

Meet Safety Standards

industrial dust control solutionsAn accumulation of dust in any industrial setting poses a threat to the health and safety of those working there.  This is especially true in the world of metalworking where the fine dust particles may be especially toxic.  In light of this threat, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established standards of safety that must be followed in any such industrial settings.  These address not only dust that may be inhaled but also the threat of combustibility through its accumulation.  Check out the latest combustible dust update HERE.  When you look for an industrial dust control system, begin by ensuring that it meets these and other industry standards.

Anticipate Dust And Fumes

As you consider a system to provide dust control for your work space, make sure you take fumes into account as well.  In many metalworking processes, noxious fumes are created which are more than unpleasant; they can be increasingly harmful when inhaled.  Not all industrial dust control systems are created to handle this dual threat, so it is vital to choose a collector that can manage both dust and fume generated by metalwork manufacturing.

Cartridge Filter Cleaning: is it worth it?

Does having your dust collectors cartridge filters cleaned make sense? We have been interested in having our cartridge filters cleaned instead of replacing them with new ones. This has been a topic for discussion around here for a while since we not only use cartridge filters for our welding, plasma and grinding operations, but we also manufacture and market them as a product for most brands of dust collectors. At first glance the concept seems to make sense so we decided to have an open forum discussion about the differences and below is a list of questions and answers that we came up with regarding the topic.

Please be sure to leave a comment and subscribe to our blog!

 

Q: Does cleaning your filters have an effect on the original filters emission throughput?
A: When we sell our filters we sell them with a manufactures guaranteed emission statement. This statement is based on the performance of new filters that have been tested in a laboratory. We cannot offer an emission statement once they have been mechanically cleaned outside of the original dust collector.

 

Q: Does the cost to clean the filters outweigh the cost to replace them?
A: It is hard for us to put a solid number on this question. Our concerns would be related to the following costs; freight, damaged filters from shipping and handling, labor, storage for a spare set of filters, clean up from excessive handling of dirty filters, pre mature failure to your HEPA filters from less efficient filters, etc… If you take a 10 cartridge dust collector and estimate the cost of new filters to be $2,000 and start subtracting the costs listed above you might have a hard time justifying it.

 

Q: Is there a danger that re-installing your cleaned used cartridge filters could harm your employees or cause a negative impact on your operation?
A: Most cartridge filters today are designed to work in the OEM’s dust collector with the original factory cleaning system. If you take the spent cartridge filters out and try to mechanically clean them you may jeopardize the integrity or the filter media. This can fracture the substrate especially if there is a NANO fiber treatment on the filter. With a damaged filter you are at risk of contaminating the air stream potentially causing harm to your workers and your process. This issue will show up very fast if you have a broken bag detector in line or a bank of HEPA filters after the primary filters.

 

Q: Is excessive handling dirty filters a good idea?
A: If you have ever changed out a set of filters on your own you will find that it can be a less than desirable job. Even when you have a simple tool free filter change out system like the CMAXX, it can be a lot of work. Besides that fact the no one likes to handle dirty filters, there is always a risk of putting a hole in one of the filters from handling. Not to mention that finding a filter with a hole in it can be a major job in itself.

 

Q: Will using cleaned  cartridge filters meet my DEP / OSHA permits?
A: Our filter emissions are based on using new filters. If you remove our filters and clean them with anything othe r than the cleaning system that is supplied with the dust collector, our emission statement no longer applies and cannot be used for DEP / OSHA permits.

 

Q: Is it necessary to use a cartridge filter cleaning machine or have our filters cleaned by a third party if we have a built in cleaning system on our dust collector?
A: No. If you have a built in cleaning system on your dust collector and you are properly cleaning it there is no need. Most dust collection systems have the ability to do both “online” and “offline” cleaning. Online cleaning is done while the system fan is running and can be either continuous or set to clean at a certain differential pressure. The offline cleaning feature is the most effective method of cleaning. This type of cleaning is done once the main system fan is shut down allowing the reverse air to purge the dirty filter for a given time or until the filter is clean. This is essentially what a filter cleaning company s or a filter cleaning machine does without mechanically shaking the filter. We manufacture a controller that can be added to any dust collector with a reverse pulse cleaning system to give you this added benefit.
