The Farr Gold Series has proven itself to work very well in paper scrap applications. It is customized to accommodate the fibrous nature of dust. The vertical cartridge design works better for this application and Camfil APC is one of the few companies that can handle paper scrap well.

The Farr Gold Series, with its cross flow inlet design and vertical pleated cartridges, keeps the material from bridging, especially in processes such as book binding, printing and corrugated box board production. For paper slits, cutoffs and extremely fibrous material, nylon overbags can be installed on the cartridges to prevent bridging and wedging in the pleats as well.
