Camfil APC is the world’s leading manufacturer of industrial dust collectors. This equipment removes airborne particulates that are produced when manufacturing and processing paperboard, plastic and metal packaging. Since those particles pose both occupational exposure risks and combustible dust hazards, Camfil dust collectors make packaging facilities safer as well as cleaner.
Camfil APC’s flagship product is the Gold Series X-Flo (GSX) dust collection system, which handles all kinds of toxic and combustible dusts, including fine, fibrous and heavy dust loads.
The GSX exceeds OSHA mandates for factory air quality, and when equipped with an explosion vent, offers the highest combustible dust explosion protection in accordance with NFPA and ATEX standards. Because the GSX operates more efficiently, it pulse-cleans less frequently, which has been proven to reduce compressed air consumption up to 70%.
Camfil is also a leader in combustible dust explosion protection, offering a full range of technical services to test dusts and analyze specific operating conditions. They carry a variety of products to mitigate dust collector explosions, including explosion vents, inlet isolation valves and integrated safety monitoring filters.
In addition to dust collectors, Camfil offers a full range of replacement filter cartridges that fit most other dust collector brands. Replacing standard filters with HemiPleat® filters increases any dust collector’s performance, and the filters last much longer.
Camfil APC’s North American headquarters in Jonesboro, Arkansas houses manufacturing, sales and administrative offices. The facility includes a state-of-the-art test lab to simulate full-scale testing, including ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 199 testing. This testing provides comparison data on emissions, pressure drop, compressed air usage, energy consumption and emission readings, taking the guesswork out of equipment selection to help identify the best dust collection equipment for the job.
