Dust Separator

About me


Dust separators protect pumps against contamination and damage by sucked-in dust.

Advantages to the User

  • Dust separators for large quantities of dust
  • Two-stage, thus hardly any throttling
  • Cyclone (for coarse dust) and wet filter (for fine dust)
  • Dust separator and molecular filter have the same housing (for easy conversion)

Typical Application

Separation of coarse and medium size dust starting at a grain size of 2 ┬Ám

Technical Information

Installing a dust filter in the intake line of the pump will throttle its pumping speed at low intake pressures more than at higher intake pressures. This must be taken into account when designing a vacuum system. Even when large quantities of dust are deposited, the throttling effect will hardly increase.
