Freudenberg Filtration Technologies offers a system, based on the company’s edrizzi paint mist separators and Viledon compact pocket filters, that is designed for exhaust air systems to minimize paint overspray and paint sludge produced from coating booths. One customer experienced clogged filters and reduced exhaust air volumes with filters needing to be changed frequently. Using the edrizzi paint mist separators, Freudenberg Filtration Technologies offered a comprehensive solution for dry separation.

According to the company, the system features high absorption capacity with the ability to absorb up to 100 kg of paint per m2 at a nominal volume flow rate of 2,000 to 2,000 m3 per hour. As a result, customers can achieve longer filter life.

The edrizzi system is based on a cube made of corrugated cardboard, which can be disposed of at incineration plants and compactly transported and stored, as the boxes can also be disassembled.

For initial treatment, edrizzi Vario medium paint mist separators are used. The post-filtration of the exhaust air takes place via moisture-resistant Viledon compact pocket filters made from synthetic-organic fibers. To increase performance, the company says, the customer’s system was converted to edrizzi Vario S fine modules after a test phase. In addition, three Viledon WinAir 50 pocket filters were used to ensure clean air within the VOC system.
