Plant Engineering 2013 Product of the Year finalist: HemiPleat eXtreme, Camfil Air Pollution ControlNano fiber filter

The HemiPleat eXtreme nano fiber filter offers high filtration efficiencies, durability, and increased resistance to pulse-cleaning to extend filter life and reduce operating and energy costs associated with industrial cartridge dust and fume collectors. A proprietary tri-layered technology applies two layers of fine-pored nano fibers that act as a pre-filter to the base media, capturing most of the dust at the surface before it imbeds in the filter. This technology increases the filter’s cleaning ability and allows the base materials to have larger pore sizes—reducing pressure drop while allowing the eXtreme fibers to provide a superior efficiency layer.

Plant Engineering 2013 Product of the Year finalist: Heavy Duty HEPA Vac, EXAIR CorporationIndustrial vacuum attachment

The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac attaches to an ordinary 55-gal open top drum to turn it into a powerful HEPA-quality industrial vacuum cleaner. The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac is designed to move more material with less wear. In addition, this vacuum has been engineered to filter contaminants to HEPA requirements in dusty environments requiring frequent cleaning. An economically, easily maintained pre-filter stops larger particles, while the HEPA filter handles the smaller matter. All filters are tested for minimum 99.97% filtration at the 0.3 micron level to meet HEPA standards in strict accordance to IEST-RP-CC-007.

Plant Engineering 2013 Product of the Year finalist: FILTAIR Capture 5, Miller Electric Mfg. Co.Fume extraction system

The FILTAIR Capture 5 fume extraction system is designed to capture welding fumes up to 5 ft away from the source. The FILTAIR Capture 5 system improves safety and enhances productivity by decreasing downtime for welders to adjust the fume extraction arm, especially when welding long, continuous welds. The system is well suited to applications in heavy equipment manufacturing and general fabrication, as well as in maintenance and repair operations. It can accommodate fume from Stick, Flux-Cored, MIG and TIG welding processes. The Capture 5 system features FilTek XL filters for capturing up to 85% of weld fume particles.

Plant Engineering 2013 Product of the Year finalist: PIG Rapid Response Drainblocker, New Pig CorporationDrain cover

The PIG Rapid Response Drainblocker allows facilities to quickly respond to and contain spills without breaking budget. The drain cover is designed for both indoor and outdoor use and features a UV-resistant polypropylene top layer that will not stretch or tear when picked up. Ideal for quickly sealing floor and storm drains during spill emergencies, these covers are ideal for fixed facilities, fleets, hazmat, and other response teams that need to meet the stringent EPA spill preparation and cleanup regulations.
