The Gold Series X-Flo (GSX) industrial dust collector from Camfil APC (Jonesboro, AR) is ideal for industrial applications that produce or process welding fumes and fine, fibrous and heavy dusts. They provide a safer work environment in welding operations, as well as other metalworking applications, such as thermal spray, plasma cutting, laser cutting and abrasive blasting. GSX collectors are designed in modules, so they are easy to build and assemble. Each module handles airflows up to 6,000 cfm using four Gold Cone™ X-Flo filter cartridges that have more pleated media and surface area to move more air and process more dust without increasing the collector’s overall footprint. This collector also features a newly-engineered inlet and unique baffle configuration that creates a more uniform airflow, which extends the life of the filters. When the filters are pulse cleaned, more dust is channeled directly into the hopper instead of into the adjacent filters. GSX dust collectors exceed OSHA mandates for indoor air quality and are tested to meet NFPA and ATEX standards. They are available with many explosion protection options including explosion vents, isolation valves, integrated safety monitoring filters and fire-retardant filter cartridges.
