Camfil Expands Lab for Dust-Collection TestingApril 1, 2017
Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC), Jonesboro, AR, a manufacturer of dust-, mist- and fume-collection equipment, has doubled the size of its testing laboratory to include a climate-controlled facility with a new full-sized dust-collection test rig. The new equipment is dedicated to testing in accordance with ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 199-2016, Method of Testing the Performance of Industrial Pulse Cleaned Dust Collectors.
Unlike other air-filter standards that focus on HVAC systems, the Standard 199-2016 test process analyzes how well filters actually clean and how dust collectors perform as a whole. It is the first standard to provide a methodology for comparing performance results based on true operating conditions. Using a cartridge dust collector with four high-efficiency filters, the unit feeds dust into the collector under specified conditions, measuring pressure drop and downstream emissions. Camfil will use the test rig for both internal product quality testing and to help customers simulate real-world conditions to evaluate the compliance and effectiveness of various filters.
