A.Celli Dust Removal System, slitting dust is a problem of the past
By: Riccardo Ragni
Nowadays dust issues are becoming more and more a prime concern, especially for hygienic fabric producers, high speed spunmelt production lines and other lines sensitive to the aforementioned issues, such as Spunlace, Airlaid and Meltblown ones.
In fact, dust deposition in the slitting area may reduce the cutting efficiency, contaminating the finished product and contributing to environmental pollution. In order to reduce the dust originated by the slitting processes in the rewinding section, A.Celli designed an efficient Dust Removal System.
This solution can be installed on in-line slitting winders, rewinders, spooling lines and printing lines, and it consists mainly of individual suction heads positioned on the knife holder and equipped with a blower system to remove dust accumulation on the knives. Other parts of the system are the suction line, a fan equipped with an inverter and a control unit, pipes and ducts to convey dust and air to the fan and a filter for dust/air separation. There is also the possibility to add suction nozzles over the knives to increase the efficiency of the system.
The A.Celli Dust Removal System guarantees minimized dust loads on products and winders, expanded cleaning intervals, more production hours, the reduction of maintenance activities and the extension of the machinery useful life. Furthermore, minimizing the dust in operational areas actually supports people’s health and safety.
