“Clean Air Rocks” Video Takes Virtual Tour through a Dust Collector

September 7, 2012

Camfil Farr Air Pollution Control (APC) has partnered with Arkansas State University’s Center for Digital Initiatives (CDI) to create “Clean Air Rocks”, a 3D animated video, (www.camfilfarrapc.com/videos/77). For anyone who has wondered how an industrial dust collector really works, the 3 ½-minute video answers this question by taking viewers on a virtual tour through the inside of a Camfil Farr APC Gold Series dust collector.

According to Dr. Alyson Gill, director of the CDI at ASU, “This is the first time we have partnered with local industry on a sponsored project, and it was a great collaboration. We worked hand-in-hand with Camfil Farr APC’s in-house production team to develop 3D modeling and animation to help realize their creative vision.”

The CDI, whose mission is to promote ASU’s position as a leader in the creation of virtual interactive environments, has done numerous projects for the University as well as for state agencies and other government entities.   

Entertaining and informative, the animated video takes viewers on a 3D tour alongside dust particles as they travel from the workplace into the dust collector and through its filtration system to ultimately deliver clean air back to the factory.

“We were very excited to collaborate with ASU on this program and were impressed by the power of 3D visualization as an industrial communications tool,” said Camfil Farr APC president Lee Morgan. “We urge other companies to support and partner with their local universities on technical projects like this one.”
