FABTECH ON DISPLAY Cartridge Powder Collector Surface Measurement Gages Col-Met Spray Booths' Cartridge Collectors have a purge control feature that maintains airfow at design levels by periodically activating valves that clear the cartridge flters of built-up powder. This is designed to reclaim more powder, extend the life of the flters and allow for a consistent powder application by maintaining airfow. HEPA-type flters are used on the exhaust system. The collector uses a direct-drive, spark-proof plug fan for safety, and all modules are controlled by a variable frequency drive, which alleviates the need for a damper system and increases fan motor life. All models also include a pulse-of system and powder collection drawers, and a fuidized bed is available as an option. Col-Met Spray Booths / Booth S5050 / DeFelsko will display a variety of instruments designed for the coating industry. The PosiTector body accepts all 6000, 200, SPG, DPM and UTG probes, easily converting from a coating thickness gage to a surface profle gage, dew point meter or wall thickness gage. The PosiTector 6000 coating thickness gage features built-in memory, onscreen statistics, a PosiSof USB drive and a "fast" mode. Advanced models also include color LCD, onscreen graphing, WiFi, Bluetooth and cloud connectivity. The PosiTector DPM dew point meter measures and records climatic conditions, including relative humidity, air temperature, surface temperature, dew point temperature, and the diference between surface and dew point temperatures.
