Air Filter Cost Efficient Air Filter System
Schenck Process has recently expanded its product range to include air filter technology. The MCF filter module, that was presented for the first time at Powtech 2011, is Schenck's attempt to use its expertise in weighing and feeding applicatons for an air filter solution.
It was specially designed for applications in the animal feed, processed foods, chemicals, plastics and heavy industries, company speakers explained. The MCF's circular casing makes the device extremly robust and sturdy, while allowing for an easy and trouble–free installation. According to the company, the MCF does not use compressed air, so valuable plant air is freed up for other applications. An improved bag cleaning makes it possible to use smaller filters than normal.
The unit can handle air flows from 20 000 to around 300 000 m3 per hour. Since the unit uses only two diaphragm valves and the filter can be changed without any tools, the MCF helps to save operational expenses, Schenck officials say. Also the moderate pressure used for the index cleaning helps to reduce expenses. According to the manufacturer, the MCF system offers significantly reduced operating costs compared with many standard systems. Schenck Process was able to expand its product portfolio thanks to its recent takeover of Clyde Process Solutions, a leading supplier of air filtration, pneumatic conveying and injection technologies, at the start of 2011.
