Columbus Industries’ combination baffle/strainer-type overspray collector filters are constructed of layers of slit and expanded kraft with an optional final layer of duo-density synthetic polyester backing to maximize efficiency and strength. The front layers of this collector employ larger baffle openings followed with layers of progressively smaller “diamond” design and an optional final back layer of dense non-woven polyester. This filter design allows CI to provide products that address the filtration goals of your specific application. Testing on your specific paint can be arranged to assist in environmental evaluation of filter performance and permitting.
Standard & Standard Mini Mesh
Columbus Industries’ baffle-type Standard Mini-Mesh Collector is comprised of up to seven layers of kraft media, each slit and expanded into a mesh with baffle-like surfaces. These baffled layers form a multistage collection design which creates the action necessary for superior depth-loading characteristics. The layers with the larger baffled openings are positioned at the front of the collector. As the exhaust air passes through the collector, these larger front baffles cause the initial turbulence and surface contact removing the larger overspray particulates. The final layers incorporate smaller baffled openings which efficiently trap the vast percentage of the remaining particulates. With this configuration, the Standard and Standard Mini-Mesh Collector provide high efficiency as well as good holding capacity. These collectors are designed for general application with a wide variety of coatings ranging from lacquers to bake-dry enamels and is particularly suitable for use wherever conventional coatings are being sprayed.
Bonded Supra Paint Overspray Collectors
Columbus Industries’ proven technology of combining layers of slit and expanded kraft with a final layer of synthetic polyester backing is enhanced by using a unique bonding process rather than sewing. This process creates a slightly rigid media that will not “dog-ear” or droop as it becomes loaded with paint. The front layers of these collectors employ large baffle openings followed with layers of progressively smaller “diamond” design and a final back layer of dense non-woven polyester to maximize depth loading, efficiency and strength.
