WES3000 and WES6000 for extracting metal dust
Wet-operating extraction system, for example for deburring machines with the applications of grinding, deburring and polishing to extract the metal dust. These extraction systems are often used for the extraction of for example aluminium dust, which is explosive when it is captured dry. The method of a wet-operating extraction system like the WES6000 is to separate the dust from the air by forcefully extracting the air-dust mixture through the water. The metal dust is absorbed by the water and sinks to the bottom of the wet filter. Subsequently the water is again separated from the air, so that clean air comes out of the wet extraction system.
The WES (the wet-operating extraction system of Q-Fin) is completely made from stainless steel. A wet-operating extraction system is the safest way of extracting metal dust in combination with machines for deburring and grinding. Q-Fin produces and delivers, besides the wet-operating extraction system, high-quality deburring and grinding machines.
This type of extraction system is also suitable for sticky materials and materials that spark when processed. Oiled sheet components for example, can cause major problems for systems that work with a dry filter because of the sparks during the process. Because of the oil, the filters close and one spark can be enough to cause a fire. All fire hazards such as with dry systems are prevented when using a wet filter.
