Washable Panel Filters - Industrial & Commercial Sweepers

Industrial Sweeper Industrial Scrubber Panel Filters

Industry: Industrial Sweepers & Scrubbers
Application: Industrial All-Terrain Sweeper

Sweepers are used in airports, conference centers, office buildings, manufacturing facilities and train stations to sweep and vacuum dust and debris from roads and walkways. A major OEM contacted APC due to problems encountered with their panel filters used to capture dust and debris. In high humidity or moisture conditions the panel filters would plug up quickly requiring frequent cleaning and/or downtime for filter change. In cases were concrete dust was being vacuumed, high humidity or moisture conditions were detrimental to filter life.  A robust panel filter was required to capture the finest of dust yet durable enough to handle liquids and sharp metal objects.

APC provided four (4) filter media options to cover all applications and operating conditions:

1.   Good - Thermoplastic cellulose filter media. 
2.   Better - 100% washable polyester. 
3.   Best - 100% washable polyester with aluminized anti-static finish for dissipation of static charge.
4.   Most Demanding - 100% washable HEPA filter with PTFE membrane laminate.

APC redesigned filter frame construction to a four (4) piece rigid 24 gauge electro-galvanized steel frame, designed to prevent flexing and premature corrosion.  Additional stiffeners were added to handle the sweepers automatic vibration cleaning  system.

Filter life was extended significantly reducing equipment downtime, filter waste disposal and maintenance costs.
