What is Fumekiller® - Fume Extractor?
The filter modules are many times washable and re-usable during the life of the equipment. Maintenance and running costs are low when compared to conventional mechanical filters. We have incorporated safety features such as motor protection, limit switches and high voltage fault trip circuitry for reliable, safe and efficient functioning. These systems contribute to a safer, healthier work environment where toxic airborne pollutants are removed. We provide excellent factory support and product expertise based on years of industrial process emission control.
How it Works
Particles in fumes, smoke or dust stream enter the electrostatic filter through the suction inlet (1) Particles carried by the air stream first enter the pre- filter (2) where large particles are removed. The finer particles then enter the electrostatic module (3) where, between a series of parallel aluminium plates, they receive a high +ve charge. These positively charged particles then pass through another series of aluminium plates which are negatively charged. Here, the particles are attracted to the oppositely charged aluminium plates and stick to them just like iron filings are attracted to a magnet, but, with one difference, the particles remain adhered to the plates even when the electrostatic filter is switched off. The air, now devoid of particles, escapes through the outlet (5) of the system as clean air. The post filter (4) evenly distributes the air flow through the electrostatic modules. Post filters when fitted with activated carbon granules can control odour & smell. Suction is provided with a centrifugal fan (6).
