Electrostatic accumulation is a common issue found in both wet and dry filtration applications including, Palm Oil Production, Power Generation Dust Collectors and Fluidised Bed Drier Bags. Each application and equipment varies significantly but in all cases, the working environment is such that there is a distinct risk of electro-static discharge, which can result in serious equipment damage. The equipment and filter media used must incorporate conductive components which are sufficiently earthed.
At Clear Edge, our innovation and technology team have developed a range of media covering different polymer and yarn types. We incorporate anti-static technology woven directly into the structure of the fabric to reduce the risk of electrostatic and to guarantee a smooth filtration process. The composition is such that when properly earthed, the static charge is dissipated through the structure of the media due to its inherent electrical conductivity.
