ROCHFORD - The filterless Uni-Dust is a highly efficient cyclone made from stainless steel. The cyclone has been specially designed for applications in the process industries where powder and dust is often generated and lost.
The fundamental idea of the equipment is to capture as much powder as possible that would otherwise have been lost to the filters.
How Does it Work?
The cyclone separates the solids from the clean air, typically capturing at least 95% of excess powder in a collection pot. The air is then passed through a "police" HEPA filter which increases system efficiency to 99.99% before the clean air flows to the normal dust extraction unit.
By capturing at least 95% of the excess powder in a collection pot, it becomes possible to safely dispose of excess powder, or even to reintroduce it to the front end process.
Why Do I Need It?
As with most things, prevention is better than cure. The Hanningfield Uni-Dust cyclone adopts this principle by offering a best-practice solution to the problem of handling excess powder, typically capturing over 95% of all waste on standard pharmaceutical, food and chemical powders.
The loss of excess powder from a process has always been a major issue for engineers – whether a process engineer is losing powder from a tablet press during compression or a line manager is losing powder from a sachet filling machine – the principle is the same, powder is being lost.
Often, existing dust extraction systems cause downstream filters to become blinded or a cocktail of various powders to build up in the filter of the central dust extraction system. If either filter becomes blocked, this can be expensive and time-consuming to change.
The equipment is designed to be retrofitted to any dust generating plant as process validation is not affected, making it ideal for almost any new or existing process.
