CGP were contacted September 2013 by a large plastic extruding company, the issues listed below:

  • 27 no filter units on extrusion lines
  • Filters within weeks were becoming blinded causing daily maintenance downtime
  • Blinded filters causing drop in throughput
  • Existing filter units required a lot of time for simple checks and maintenance and the use of hoist to perform filter change
  • Costs relating to the purchase of new filters

After several site visits and design work, CGP installed new vacuum filter unit December 2013
Project was designed in such a manner no modifications would be required to the customer existing plant layout
Fully installed with only 7 hours downtime
Filter design ensured filter arrangement meant filters dealt with aspiration only and not direct product impact
Filter design ensured after site testing that a full filter change would only require 15 minutes with no need for hoist compared to existing requiring 60 minutes
At site testing it was seen compared to existing filter units that the CGP vacuum filter unit took 85 seconds less to transfer material
New filter unit change compared to existing filters would save the customer£12,985.00 per year on filter purchases
