System which serves the purpose of extracting and filtering process gas; e.g., air. It consists of several filter units and other devices and components.
Subcomponent of a filter system, consisting of other devices and components.
Part of the filter unit that filters solid, liquid or gaseous components from the process gas. Examples are:
- Wet separator
- Cartridge filter
- Automatic roll band filter
- Electrostatic precipitator
Atmospheric air that comes into contact with a manufacturing process and must be present in a defined degree of purity for the manufacturing process to function or is contaminated with released substances (e.g. solid, liquid or gaseous components) or energy loads as a result of the manufacturing process
Device used to remove collected filter material from the filter unit. Examples are: rotary valves or discharge gate valves.
Device for the reduction of filtered materials in separators. The cleaning can be achieved e.g. by vibration, reversed airflow or compressed-air blast (EN 12779:2015).
Device for the application of a filter aid. Examples of filter aids are: finely divided, porous solid material, material for neutralization of gases or liquids.
Component within the filter system which produces the volume flow rate necessary for extracting process gas. Examples are: ventilators, blowers
Component in the filter system for heating or cooling the process gas.
Component that represents a protective device. Examples are: extinguishing systems, smoke detectors, spark detectors.
