Diversitech Wet-Type Dust Collectors
The Diversitech WX series wet dust collector eliminates combustible dust fires and flammable sparks from your process by using cascading water to quench dangerous airborne particulate. In order to prevent excess humidity, the wet collector includes a mist eliminator after-filter to reduce the amount of water spray exhausted. The wet dust collector’s filtration system forces particles through a series of baffles to submerge them into a turbulent vortex of water. After the dust is immersed in water, the material then drains down into a water basin.
The WX-Series is available with an auto-water level control system to maintain the correct water level as some of the water evaporates during normal use. The wet collector shuts down during conditions of high or low water level to comply with NFPA and OSHA safety regulations.
Diversitech’s wet dust collectors are available with many optional accessories including ducted downdraft tables which can be custom designed for any process. The integrated hydrogen vent fan ensures that hydrogen gas is exhausted from the collector as metals oxidize in the water tank. Available HEPA after-filters provide high efficiency filtration for applications involving fine particulate and are outfitted with all NFPA required sensors. The available self-cleaning strainer systems uses a pump, basket strainer and nozzles to automatically convey material into an exterior basket, reducing maintenance intervals.
