Farr APC: New Filter
April 18, 2005
The new HemiPleat(TM) filter from Farr Air Pollution Control (APC) offers extended service life and lower pressure drop compared to standard dust collector cartridge filters -- typically double the life at half the delta P, according to the company. The HemiPleat line includes filter elements to fit virtually all types of new and existing cartridge dust collectors, providing high-efficiency capture of dry dusts in a full range of applications. The key to the filter's performance is a patent-pending pleating technology. An innovative media pack design holds the pleats of the cartridge open, making virtually all the media surface available for filtration (unlike conventional cartridges, which are packed too tightly to maximize media use).
