Lint Filtration from Energenics


NAPLES, Fla. — Dryer exhaust contains a large volume of lint. Prior to exhaust it is necessary to collect the lint. An inline filter from Energenics is designed to collect 98 percent of lint. Energenics manufactures lint filters for individual dryers and also manufactures central lint filters that have an option of a VFD controlling a booster fan that can filter multiple dryers into a single lint filter.

Two types of lint collectors are wet and dry -the majority are dry type. The filters are self-cleaning using compressed air and are cleaned automatically at an optimum back pressure that allows the dryer blower to operate most efficiently. A wet type filter is a continuously cleaning filter that utilizes a water curtain to wash the lint from dryer exhaust and store it in a collection bag. Energenics lint filters are available to operate in any size dryer.

To assist in compliance of OSHA directive CPL-03-00-008 against combustible dust explosions and the Fires Act of 2008, Energenics has the Lint Scrubber. It solves the problem of lint laden air in laundries above the automatic and manual feeding, finishing and folding of operations in the clean linen area. This problem solving Lint Scrubber series reduces clean-up labor costs and vastly improves laundry air quality.

Removing airborne lint results in cleaner rails for sling loading/unloading systems and facilitates smoother operation, less operator intervention and less cleaning labor. On the floor, it helps keep lint from accumulating and fouling expensive linen handling equipment. The Lint Scrubbers lessen the dust contamination of controls and mechanical components of the finishing equipment. Laundries spend hours cleaning the lint off the equipment after shutdown. Collect the lint first with the Lint Scrubber, and then eliminate the laborious cleanup. Energenics has designed the Lint Scrubbers with UL Class 508A controls to meet all electrical codes. They are assembled using a high strength non-corrosive aluminum alloy; weight is reduced 27% from steel.
