Whirl-X Dust Collector for Metal Grinding, Machining, Sanding, and Deburring of Exotic Metals, Including Aluminum and Magnesium
Tri-Mer Whirl-X® was engineered for the safe, efficient collection of metal fines from grinding,
sanding and deburring operations involving aluminum, magnesium, titanium, beryllium, uranium
and other exotic metals. The system is a cost-effective, high-performance alternative for these and
similar applications that create an explosion hazard for traditional dry and bag collectors.
The Tri-Mer Whirl-X is manufactured in mild steel, stainless steel, or special alloys such as Hastelloy.
It is also offered in all-polypropylene, a feature which prevents the accumulation of collected dusts,
eliminates corrosion and greatly minimizes maintenance.
Whirl-X captures 99.9% of all dusts five microns and larger. It can be ducted to multiple stations
or sources, and is low noise. Its advanced design does not use pumps, nozzles or bags - three
costly and consumable components which are common to conventional collectors now used in
metal processing. It is self-cleaning, and, notably, the patented whirl chamber has no internal
Whirl-X uses very little water, an important factor in areas where utility rates have risen.
Following initial charge, the only water required is a small amount to compensate for evaporation
and dragout. Systems can also be engineered to return air to the plant in some instances,
reducing HVAC costs.
Whirl-X Systems are manufactured in capacities from 425 cfm to 50,000 cfm. Depending on size,
reclamation requirements and other factors, three disposal alternatives are offered. Manual or
timed-drain systems are offered for modest dust volumes; for highest volumes and lowest
maintenance, an automatic conveyor dragout, "zero-shutdown" format is offered.
Tri-Mer manufactures a broad range of specialized dust and particulate collection systems
for metalworking and other process environments.
