The Captasys system includes automatic blast gates for each device connected to the dust collection system of the plant. These allow air collection from the source only when machinery equipment produces dust or particles. This feature prevents the collection, transportation and treatment of clean air, thus relieving the load of dust and increasing its available additional capacity.
The Captasys system allows the speed modulation of the main blower, thereby reducing exponentially the energy consumption.
For example, a 25% reduction of the volume of treated air allows a reduction of more than 40% of the power consumption of the blower.
By modulating the volume of air processed by the dust collection system, the life span of the filters is significantly increased, as well as the mechanical systems, such as belts and ball bearings. This reduction in maintenance cost is typically $ 500 - $ 2,000 per year.
