Paper Trap vs. Venus Fly Trap
Paper Trap vs. Venus Fly TrapA typical dust collection hood on a paper converting line is designed to collect small particles of dust. During the process to make toilet paper, larger chunks of tissue get torn off and sucked into the hoods. These large chunks are then taken to a dust collector (RACF or bag house) and will clog or blind the filter media.
When this happen it increase the number of times the filters have to be maintained or cleaned. How do we keep this from happening? To increase the service life of the collector we have developed a Paper Trap (see figure below) to catch these larger pieces before they get on the media.
Much like a Pre-Separator before a drum filter the Paper Trap would have a screen/mesh housed inside a cabinet that goes before the collector.
When the screen becomes clogged a pressure indicator would rotate the screen down and empty the large chunks into a hopper and tote below.
This cleaning cycle will last a few minutes then return the hoods to normal operation.
