Typhoon - Model WX-1200 - Wet Dust Collector
From Wet Dust Collectors
The Typhoon WX-1200 wet dust collector eliminates combustible dust fires and flammable sparks from your process by using cascading water to quench dangerous airborne particulate. In order to prevent excess humidity, the wet collector includes a mist eliminator after-filter to reduce the amount of water spray exhausted. The wet dust collector’s filtration system forces particles through a series of baffles to submerge them into a turbulent vortex of water. After the dust is immersed in water, the material then drains down into a water basin.
The unit can be easily cleaned with an optional wet-vacuum making routine service faster & easier. For applications where the dust generation is further away from the collector, empty downdraft tables or extraction arms are popular options.
The wet dust collector works by drawing dust-laden air in through the inlet on the back of the scrubber. A tank of water and a series of internal baffles known as a 'water tree' filter the combustible dust via engineered water streams. Dust is filtered through contact with water droplets and contained in the bottom of the collector for safe removal at necessary maintenance intervals. Water levels are mechanically controlled with valves, including interlock functions to meet NFPA and OSHA codes.
