Compacting Airlaid dust

When dust is compacted the structure of the dust fibres are broken, so the soft structure breakes and the material looses the ability to float around. This means that it can fall into a container.

Airy nonwoven textile used for diapers, feminine hygiene, meat pads and other packaging materials. To reduce fire hazard during production of these textiles it is important to control the textile dust in the production areas.

With RUNI screw compactor installed directly under the cell lock the dust can be compacted directly into plastic bags. The volume has been reduced significantly compared to loose dust in big bags. When compacted the dust is suitable for incineration unlike loose dust.

Both dust and off-cuts are blown over to the RUNI screw compactor where the air pressure is removed using a cell lock and the material falls down into the closed hopper. During compacting, the textile fibres are changed so that their soft structure is removed and the compacted material can fall directly down into a container. If the material is very dry it can alternatively be compacted directly into endless plastic bags. Another alternative is to add a little water via a nozzle bracket during the compacting process. This will lower dust problems to a minimum.
