Keller Lufttechnik, specializing in dust extraction processes, presents the new HydronPlus compact wet separator which was awarded the Baden-Wuerttemberg Environmental Technology Award 2017. The separator is geared toward manufacturing processes that create combustible, explosive or adhesive dust. It combines the advantages of a wet separator with the high separation efficiencies of a dry operating process and thereby enables the recirculation of clean air. A fan with a frequency converter automatically adjusts its performance to the available conditions. Both factors contribute to the outstanding energy efficiency of the system.
A complex commissioning such as is normally required for wet separators lacks the following new capability: The operator specifies an air flow which the system automatically maintains using the frequency converter – even if the pressure differential inside the ductwork fluctuates, e. g., by opening a door. The system automatically adjusts to preset parameters. This new feature labelled “Plug-and-Play” boosts process safety, lowers costs and increases flexibility.
