The FP 150 is equipped with a cleanable filter cartridge which allows dust build-up to be removed from the filter using bursts of compressed air. This means that the device is ideal for applications in which large amounts of dry dust are extracted, and that it has a very long service life in comparison to systems with saturation filters. Precoating (applying a separating layer to the filter cartridge) enables the system to reliably filter out even sticky and moist dust.
The contaminated air is collected by the collection unit (extractor hood, suction arm, hose, etc.) and transported into the filter unit directly or through a pipe or flexible hose. The dust particles are filtered out by a cleanable filter cartridge in the filter unit. The filter cartridge can be cleaned by hand using a compressed air gun, but for health reasons, the optional automatic cleaning system is recommended. The automatic cleaning system is triggered by the system’s differential pressure controls whenever the extraction level decreases. The filtered-out dust particles are collected in a dust collector for easy disposal. If necessary, a dust bag can also be inserted for low-contamination disposal.
