CFE - Compact Filter Elements

For more than 20 years, Clear Edge has been a leader in providing cost-effective de-dusting systems for critical industrial processes.

We have many years of experience designing and using Compact Filter Elements (CFEs), which have a variety of applications:

  • Welding fumes, especially in laser cutting in high purity environments
  • Automotive, including paint shop spraying
  • Construction and mining, including tunneling
  • Milling, especially power handling

Our CFEs are highly engineered, self-supporting filter units, with a proprietary technology that combines the advantages of filter bags and cartridges. Depending on the application, Clear Edge can customize the filter elements with oleo- and hydrophobic, temperature resistant, microporous coated, PTFE-membrane surface, and antistatic finishes available.

In addition, CFEs can handle high dust load environments and be cleaned efficiently by reverse pulse cleaning.

Our CFEs offer a number of valuable benefits:

  • Up to 3 times more filter area compared to conventional filter bags
  • Can reduce filter house volume by up to 70 percent
  • Can save up to 40 percent on running and energy costs
  • High efficiency
  • Long service life (3-5 years)
  • Excellent cake removal achieved with reverse pulse cleaning
  • Simple and quick to clean, install and replace
  • Can be retrofitted into existing units
  • CFE are more compact, making indoor installations possible
