This second hand FX125H 2.2kW // 3 Hp self contained centrifugal extraction fan is an extremely versatile fine dust filter, capable of handling numerous dust types over a wide range of applications.


  • A completely self-contained dust collector, with integral fan, acoustic attenuator and automatic controller the FX uses high efficiency envelope filter elements to cope with fine and light dusts.
  • The FX is designed to accept combinations of air volumes and filtration areas to meet varying applications of intermittent processes.
  • The FX benefits from standard zintec steel for even more demanding environments.
  • The FX filter performance enables the recirculation (in some circumstances) of filtered air back into the process area, promoting cost savings through energy efficiency by the return of treated air.
  • The above design duties are based on an 8:1 cloth to air ratio. A variety of filter medias are available.

How do Dust Extractors Work?

Dust collection systems work in a variety of different ways but all have general principles in common. They draw process dust and particulates from the air through a filter that first captures and separates the matter, and then discharges decontaminated air back into the workplace or environment.

Dust extractors are used in many different and varied industries and so different demands are made of them; however all have common components such as a blower (or fan), dust filter, filter cleaning system, dust container and dust removal system.

Five common types of dust collection equipment are fabric filter baghouses, inertial separators (like mechanical cyclones), cartridge collectors, wet scrubbers, and electrostatic precipitators.

Importance of Dust Extractors

Dust in the workplace can affect product quality and employee´s health. Having a dust-free environment is essential to the health and safety of the workforce. Not only does it affect the health of employees but the dust covers the equipment affecting production processes and quality of the products. 

Capturing the dust at the source prevents it from spreading, done by using a dust extractor system to facilitate the important housekeeping to avoid it from accumulating.

What are Shaker Dust Collectors?

Shaker Dust Collectors contain a number of woven bags, which are fixed onto rails and use their surface area to capture dust as it is drawn through the extraction unit by its fan.

Bags are periodically cleaned by rapidly shaking the bags through a shaker motor and linkage system which removes the filtered dust from the bags and into a collection bin.

These units are commonly used in foundries, steel mills, the mining industry, power plants, and smelting industries.
