Pulp & Paper
Air filters are commonly used in the pulp and paper industry to maintain air quality and prevent contamination of the final product. The industry involves various processes, such as wood preparation, pulp manufacturing, papermaking, and coating, which can generate impurities that can be harmful to workers and the environment. Air filters are used at different stages of the manufacturing process, including wood preparation, pulp manufacturing, papermaking, and coating. The type of air filter used depends on the specific application and the impurities to be removed. For example, pre-filters and fine filters can remove larger and smaller particles, respectively, while activated carbon filters can capture odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and HEPA filters can remove even smaller particles with high efficiency.
Large-scale industrial plants use control rooms to monitor and control operations, filled with sophisticated electronic devices. The airborne particles as well as the corrosive gases present inside the control room impairs the control boards or any senstive instrument which involves the risk of plant down time. This risk can be overcome by using Spectrum's molecular filters along with any suitable pre filters.
Power generators commonly require air filters to maintain air quality, protect equipment, and ensure the reliability of power generation. Power generators can produce various airborne contaminants, such as dust, dirt, and other impurities that can cause damage to the equipment and reduce efficiency. Therefore, air filters play an important role in removing these impurities and ensuring that the air is clean and free from contaminants. The type of air filter used in power generators depends on the specific application and the impurities to be removed. For example, diesel generators require air filters to protect the engine from contaminants such as dust, dirt, and other particulate matter. Gas generators and steam turbines require air filters to remove impurities that can cause corrosion, fouling, and erosion of the equipment. Wind turbines require air filters to remove dust, debris, and other particulate matter that can cause damage to the blades and reduce maintenance costs.
