Compact Airlaid Dust

Airy non-woven textile is used for diapers, feminine hygiene, meat pads, and other packaging materials. To reduce fire hazards during the production of these textiles, it is essential to control the textile dust in the production areas.

RUNI Solution with Screw Compactor

With RUNI screw compactor SK370 installed directly under the cell lock, the dust can be compacted directly into plastic bags. The volume will be significantly reduced 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 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.

The SK370 has a capacity of 750 kg/hour, and the RUNI can achieve a density of the compacted dust of up to 650 kg/m3

FAQ

  • How do you compact dust?
    An  efficient solution is the RUNI dust screw compactor, positioned under a cell lock. Dust fibers will, when squeezed hard enough, become "dead" and can then be collected in a container without the problem of the dust flying around in the environment. Furthermore a bit of water can be added in the compacting process to gain even better control of the dust. The compacted dust is collected into a container or into endless plastic bags, minimizing the risk of fire and creating a safer work environment.
  • How do you store the compacted dust?
    After compacting the dust, depending on whether you are working with air-laid or industrial dust, the dust can sometimes be compacted into endless bags. If not necessary, the compacted dust will be collected directly in a container.
