A replacement for wet-scrubbing

As a rule wet-scrubbing comes into operation in the production of glass wool during various processes. Münstermann has developed an innovative concept as a substitute for wet-scrubbing with a dry de-dusting system using bag filters. As a result there are a number of advantages.

Details of use

After the kiln-process the glass wool mats are cut to size. The remaining lengths including the dust from cutting are vacuumed away by the Münstermann filter system. The illustration shows a 3-D sketch of the de-dusting section. In the foreground the pre-separation (chains) for the glass wool particles can be seen.

Further possible areas of application

Naturally when using other similar production processes in which fluffy materials are used, it is, of course, possible to employ the new Münstermann de-dusting system. The advantage of the filter with these applications is the large plenum chamber under the filter cartridges. Through this it is possible for especially light materials to be drawn off before the actual filtering unit.

  • Recycling units
  • Air injected material for a cement kilns
  • Processing plants
  • Plastic-processing industry

Advantages of de-dusting with bag filter systems

  • The loss of pressure (energy loss) when using the filter plant is less than when employing wet-scrubbing
  • With wet-scrubbing the residual dust and harmful substances in the waste water have to be specially disposed of
  • When using the new de-dusting method the deposited dust can be returned to the product
  • When using filter systems the surrounding peripheral equipment is not as complex as with wet-scrubbing and no sedimentation tank will therefore be required.
