Polex recently installed a turn-key dust collector system at Sims Group in Villawood NSW.
Dust extraction was required as a result of dust generated from shredded computer materials. Sims is the first computer parts recycling plant in Australia. They recycle computer parts into raw materials consisting of plastics and metals.
Polex designed, supplied and installed a bag type reverse-pulse dust extraction system with 14,000 m3/h airflow capacity, 120 m2 filter area, 45 kW centrifugal fan, discharge into a 3 m3 bin and a control box with a 45 kW variable speed drive.
Polex reverse-pulse dust collectors are constructed from either powdercoated 3mm or painted 5mm thick mild steel.
A standard feature of Polex dust collectors is 24VDC solenoid pulse valves and electronic pulse controllers. This provides increased electrical safety for service and maintenance.
Polex dust collectors can also be supplied with increased surface treatment or fabricated from Stainless Steel for more corrosive environments.
Polex dust collectors can be manufactured to suit specific space constraints. All equipment and systems manufactured by Polex are high quality and competitively priced.
