Fume/Dust Collector Comes Fully Assembled and Prewired

Thursday, January 1, 2015

CamfilA new Farr Gold Series Package (GSP) dust collector provides high-performance capture of dust and fumes generated by CNC laser- and plasma-cutting machines. Available in three compact, powerful models, the units handle air flow from 1000 to 3000 ft.3/min. at 8-in. wg. Each collector comes with two, four or six HemiPleat eXtreme Gold Cone filters with nanofiber media that handles the toughest dust challenges, meeting or exceeding OSHA permissible exposure limits (PELs) on most metallic dusts.

Additional HEPA filter modules can be added to further increase efficiency when handling dusts with very low PELs, such as hexavalent chromium produced during stainless-steel cutting. The use of HEPA after filters also allows indoor recirculation of air in many applications, for energy savings.

The Farr GSP collector offers plug-and-play performance—each unit ships completely assembled, wired and ready to plug in. The assembled unit includes all internal electrical connections, an integrated inlet damper, filters, fan and cleaning system.

To safeguard against fire risks, the Farr GSP collector uses fire-retardant filter media, a fire sprinkler in the clean-air plenum, and a built-in spark baffle that reduces the chance of spark-generated fires. An optional smoke alarm detects smoke inside the clean-air plenum and sends a signal to the controller to shut down the fan, as well as the cutting process.
