Features of high-performance dust collectors for factories

Difference between the ultra fine filter of Apiste's high performance dust collector for the factory that does not require filter replacement for a long time and the filter of general dust collector

GDE Series

Clean air technology backed by Apiste's Ultra-fine Filter and Green Pulse System

The biggest advantage of Apiste high performance dust collector is Ultra-fine filters. It stand apart from the filters of the typical dust collector. Our ultra-fine filters backed by our cutting-edge ultra-fine nanofiber technology work together with our Green Pulse System to eliminate the need for filter replacement over the long-term and to achieve cleaner emissions than any dust collector to date.

The Green Pulse System standard equipped the Ultra-fine Filter

A long-lasting dust collector filter ideal for the factory use

Ultra-fine filter nano-mesh structure achieves surface filtering and the largest filter surface area in the industry.

The surface of the Apiste high-performance dust collector ultra-fine filter is a micro-diameter “nano-mesh” several hundred nano-orders in size. Nano-mesh pores are so tiny in size that they capture dust particles that enter the dust collector on the surface of the filter.
The typical dust collector filter does not effectively capture dust on the surface, and dust gets inside the filter as a result. In contrast, dust particles captured on the surface of high-performance dust collector filters are easily and thoroughly filtered out of the air by the Green Pulse System. Moreover, the Ultra-fine Filter's numerous pleats achieve a filtering surface about double the area of the typical filter, and increasing the duration of the Green Pulse cleaning cycle makes it unnecessary to use excessive air pressure on the filter, thus extending filter service life.
These features help maintain dust collector performance over the long-term and reduce the need to replace filters on the factory floor by extending filter service life.

The typical dust collector has several disadvantages

The typical dust collector filter has a layered fiber structure several dozen microns in diameter. The large fibers of a typical dust collector filter cannot effectively filter dust particles on the filter’s surface. This means that dust particles can pass through the filter and get inside the dust collector filter. This poor filtering causes dust particles to build up inside the dust collector filter, and since these particles cannot be ejected by pulse jet the filter eventually needs to be replaced. Moreover, the small surface area of the typical filter requires frequent cleaning that shortens filter service life and makes periodic dust collector filter replacement on the factory floor unavoidable.

The Green Pulse System

The Green Pulse System uses differential pressure detection to monitor and clean filter clogs caused by dust particles in the dust collector. The user can set the dust removal timing to a schedule suitable for the dust collector's function and purpose on the factory floor.

Clean dust collector exhaust

A typical dust collector tends to emit dust particles immediately after its filter has been cleared of dust because particles can pass through open filter pores. In contrast, the Ultra-fine Filter’s mesh structure has filter pores a mere several microns in size that keep openings to a minimum and make it hard for dust to escape. This mesh structure is one reason why GDE Series dust collectors have cleaner exhaust and contribute to a better factory floor environment.

Apiste dust collector fume collection feature is the result of safe design

Attach the optional GDE Series Original Fume Box to collect fumes and smoke generated by laser, plasma, and other welding processes on the factory floor. In addition, compared to a typical dust collector filter, the standard equipment ultra-fine filter has a large filter area and nano-mesh structure ideal for collecting particulate fumes.

Dust collector fume collector key points

  • Fumes are less than 10μm and easily stick to surfaces
  • Micro-particles easily penetrate the filter of a typical dust collector
  • The typical dust collector filter is unable to clean out dust particles that get inside the filter, which can cause filter clogs

Preventing combustion in dust collectors

To collect fumes generated by such tasks as laser processing and welding, the GDE Series has an optional original fume box and metal dust box that can be attached to either the right or left side of the unit.
By combining the two features of removing sparks and automatically supplying filter aid, the fume box prevents fires.

Completely preventing spatter or sparks from getting inside the unit is not guaranteed.

Filter aid auto-supply extends filter service life

GDE high-performance dust collector Series original fume boxes also automatically supply filter aid that boosts fume collection performance.
The user can specify the filter aid amount and timing that is most suitable for the operating environment.

Filter aid helps clump together fume micro-particle to a size that can be trapped by the dust collector and reduces the extreme adhesiveness characteristic of dust.

Dust collector user-friendly features and functions

Energy saving inverter automatically controls air flow

The GDE high-performance dust collector series Premium Efficient Motor is Top Runner compliant. Moreover, the inverter’s innovative auto-air flow control enables setting air flow in advance for stable air flow and regardless of the filter’s clogging status (rpm can also be set). This prevents cogged filters by avoiding the excessive air flow use to collect dust.
What’s more, inverter air flow control is more energy efficient than damper controlled air flow and makes it easier to use a dust collector on the factory floor to clean up dust particles.

Operating data memory function helps tell you when its time for an inspection

The operating data memory function supports equipment inspection needs by saving air flow and filter differential pressure data—the most important indicators for evaluating dust collector performance.
Air flow and filter differential pressure operating data are presented in graph form. Showing how these indicators change over time is useful for analyzing the cause of a malfunction, analyzing the cause of a problem occurring in a dust collector in use on the factory floor, and anticipating when to do preventive maintenance.
Moreover, by setting the dust discharge time, the dust collector announces when it is time to discharge dust.

Remote operation

You can use an external input terminal to operate the dust collector together with machining tools and other equipment. What’s more, you can remotely control the timing for clearing out dust with the Green Pulse feature, and the GDE Series also comes with an application for flexible operation from a remote location that makes it easy to deal with such concerns as a drop in air flow when the dust clearing function activates.
