Automatic Filtration


APF - Automatic Panel Filter

The Automatic Panel Filter (APF) is a highly compact filter of modular construction for exhaust air containing dust and fibres. Thanks to the flexible automatic cleaning of the filter medium, the APF is particularly suitable for use in areas of high concentrations of fibre and fine dust, such as found in paper/tissue converting mills, texile applications and nonwoven production units. The extremely effective filter means the dust concentration within production areas can be reduced below HSE occupational exposure limits. Due to its modular and compact design, the APF is suitable both for new plants and for renovation of existing plants.
