Mechanically cleaned filters are suited to capture fine dust particles. When the fan is switched off and stops running, cleaning is automatically initiated. The filter hoses are cleaned through a vibrating unit or filter shaker.
Naaykens' supplies, amongst others:
- Cobra SMT round filter (vibrating unit)
- Cobra SMKT fabric filter (vibrating unit)
- Cobra SMK fabric filter (filter shaker)
This periodic cleaning makes mechanically cleaned filters suitable only for short production processes. In short, these filters are mainly used in non-continuous production processes.
Major advantages of this type of filter are the low purchase and operating costs compared to a filter cleaned with compressed air.
