It all starts at the surface
– The advantage –
Ad-Flow™ System filters delivers an increase in effective surface area over other conventional filters on the market.
This simple statistic serves as the foundation for realizing numerous significant and dramatic results. Each result presents its own set of distinct benefits.
Advancetex International’s team of experts can also optimize these improvements individually or in combination to deliver on your specific process improvement demands.
– The impact –
Reduced Air-to-Cloth Ratio
The air-to-cloth ratio is used to calculate and measure velocity. The Ad-Flow™ System Extended Surface Filter’s increase in available cloth area effectively decreases gas and dust velocity along the surface of the filter.
Change in Filter Cake Morphology
A combination of the filters’ increased surface area, aerodynamic design features and the resulting decrease in gas and dust velocity allows for a more even distribution of dust and particulate on the filter’s surface.
Lower Pressure Drop
The impact of these changes is a reduction in both filter and overall system resistance and a lower pressure drop across your system.
– The results –
Reduced cleaning frequency
Compressed Air Savings
With either a central compressor station or a dedicated system, less cleaning means less compressed air needs to be produced and delivered – reducing energy consumption, costs, and environmental impact.
Extended Bag Life
Over time, Reverse Pulse Cleaning causes flex fatigue failures and an increase in particulate penetration. Less cleaning enables Ad-Flow™ System filters to stay healthier, cleaner, and more effective longer.
The majority of particulate emissions occur during the brief period of filter element cleaning. Less cleaning reduces these emissions – reducing environmental impacts and costs and increasing efficiency.
Increased gas flow
efficiency, an increase in productivity, or an optimized combination of both.
Increased Fan Efficiency
An optimised fan allows more gas to be moved with less power and stress – reducing energy consumption, costs, and environmental impact. Less stress also maximises the potential for longer equipment life.
Back to the beginning
Both existing applications and new installation and construction
projects can take advantage of the Ad-Flow™ System.
A Smaller Capital Expenditure
The significantly greater filtration surface per meter offered by the Ad-Flow™ System filter means the capital expenditure for gas treatment can be reduced in new installation and construction projects.
Ad-Flow™ System filters occupy the same space as conventional filters allowing an upgrade to instantly increase the effective surface area without any major or costly modifications to your system.
If you are not quite ready to upgrade and implement the Ad-Flow™ System as a whole, Ad-Flow™ cages are designed to be versatile and can be used with conventional filters – allowing you to upgrade to Ad-Flow™ filters when you are ready. Ad-Flow™ cages are also scalable in size, offering additional flexibility.
Taking it further
When applied to an industry like aluminum smelting, the Ad-Flow™ System can enhance your process far beyond the typical dust collector duties. Let us show you how.
