Electrostatic powder coating filters are used in powder coating booths to remove overspray and capture fine particles during the painting process. These filters use the principle of electrostatic attraction to capture the particles, which are then deposited onto the filter media.
In addition to the electrostatic effect, some powder coating filters also utilize a jet pulse cleaning system to maintain filter efficiency. The jet pulse system works by directing compressed air into the filter media, creating a shock wave that dislodges the collected particles and causes them to fall into a collection tray or hopper. This process is automated and can be controlled by a timer or pressure differential switch.
The use of electrostatic powder coating filters with jet pulse systems helps to maintain a clean and safe working environment, while also reducing the risk of fire or explosion from excess overspray buildup.
