AQE4000 Continuous-cleaning Cartridge Media Air Cleaner

Overhead Cartridge System

AQE4000 Air Cleaner

The new Overhead Cartridge System from Air Quality Engineering Inc. is a self-contained, continuous-cleaning cartridge media air cleaner for use in source capture applications in industry. The Model AQE4000 can be ordered in one and two arm configurations or permanently ducted to capture contaminants such as welding smoke, grinding dust, plastic dust and other fine particles. The AQE4000 can be stand or ceiling mounted.


Principles of Operation

Airborne contaminants enter the AQE4000 through the optional hood/arm assembly at a rate of 1250 cubic feet of air per minute (cfm) per arm. Heavy particles are propelled downward through the venturi and into the clean out drawer. Small submicron particles are then trapped within the pleats of the four 99.8% efficient cartridge filters. The cleaned air is then discharged through the back of the unit. The cartridge filters are cleaned automatically using a Goyen valve reverse pulse system and a solid state automatic control timer.
