WET EXTRACTION

Reliable filtration of dusts and chips in industry

Both dry separators and wet separators are suitable for separating and filtering dust or chips from the air. Which extraction system is optimal for your application depends on various factors: Process, medium, installation site as well as specific regulations for fire and explosion protection.

In addition to dry dust extractors and smoke filters, wet separators are often used in industrial exhaust air purification. While dry extraction systems clean the air containing dust via several filter levels, wet separators use water to filter the substances out of the air.

The contaminated process air is drawn through either a water basin, a water wall or a water vortex. The particles are bound in the water by this technique and any remaining fine dust is separated in a HEPA H14 filter. The cleaned air can then be fed back into the hall or outside. Instead of dry dust, industrial sludge remains here as so-called discharge, which must be disposed of in accordance with regulations.

Pros and cons

  • Minimal fire risk

  • Inexpensive purchase

  • Low filter wear

  • Ideal for sticky, sparking
    and wet materials

  • Higher cleaning and
    maintenance effort

  • Outdoor installation not possible
    due to danger of freezing

  • Higher disposal costs
    of the discharge

Areas of application

Wet separators or wet scrubbers are particularly suitable for processes and substances that are associated with high levels of flying sparks, are sticky, moist, flammable or explosive (ATEX regulations). Grinding, deburring or sawing aluminum releases dusts and chips that must be safely extracted and filtered to comply with occupational health and safety regulations and environmental protection.

This process is also called wet dedusting and is used in a wide variety of sectors such as the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, the food industry or other metalworking companies.

Explosion protection according to
ATEX for wet separators

In the right mixing ratio with oxygen and an effective ignition source, flammable and explosive media in the form of gas, vapor, mist or dust can cause serious fires and violent explosions. This can injure people, destroy buildings and plant components, and ignite other flammable substances.

So-called ATEX guidelines (ATmosphères EXplosibles) apply to industrial extraction systems.

Clean air in production halls promotes the health of employees, makes workplaces safer and protects the environment. At the same time, machinery, tools and workpieces are protected and their service life is significantly extended.

When developing our wet separators, we paid special attention to low operating costs, high energy efficiency and low follow-up costs. For example, our metal mesh filters are easy to clean with a conventional high-pressure cleaner. In contrast to standard systems, our individual extraction systems consume only the amount of electricity, air and water that is actually needed. In addition, the cleaned air, which is still warm, can be returned to the hall through recirculation operation. This saves enormous energy costs, especially in winter.
