Hydrotron HPB Series Control Booth
Water Filter Dust Collector
Filtering aluminum, titanium, and other potentially explosive dust
The Filter 1 Hydrotron HPB Series Control Booth, integrating the booth enclosure and wet dust collection, is a safe and economic method of cleaning potentially volatile materials. The Filter 1 Hydrotron HPBs are generally used for working on large objects that will not fit on a table, or for multiple tabletop operations where several operators will be in the booth at the same time.
Water Filter Technology
Filter 1 Hydrotron Water Filter Dust Collectors purify the air by a combination of centrifugal force and violent mixing of water and contaminated air. As the airstream passes the fixed baffles, particulate is separated by a heavy, turbulent curtain of water created by high-velocity air. The centrifugal force caused by the rapid changes in airflow direction forces the dust particles to penetrate the water droplets and become entrapped. Contaminated water is then removed from the airstream by special mist filters. Dust, as sludge, settles to the collector's bottom and the water is reused.
The Filter 1 Hydrotron is specifically designed for the safe collection of potentially explosive and volatile materials and is effective in the capture of fine metal particles. It meets the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) guidelines for processing and finishing aluminum. (Learn more about NFPA guidelines and the use of wet dust collectors). Since the Hydrotron also meets OSHA and NFPA regulations for dust removal located inside buildings, it can recirculate in-plant, tempered air to conserve energy.

Controlling Volatile Dust
Safe collection of aluminum, titanium, and other potentially hazardous dust, as well as heavy sparking applications, meeting or exceeding OSHA and NFPA regulations for dust removal inside of the building.
High Capture Velocity
With a minimum of 300 FPM in the working zone, the optional Regain Air System increases the velocity up to 800 FPM.
Custom Sizing to Fit the Operation
Whether single or multi-operation, the Hydrotron HPB is built to the width, depth, and height dimensions needed for the task as well as for the available plant space.
Noise Control & Visbility
Ever Hydrotron HPB is equipped with sound-attenuating insulation and dust-tight fluorescent lights.
