A new miniature model commissioned by Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) provides a compact way to transport, display, and demonstrate features of the company’s Farr Gold Series dust and fume collector.
Designed at one-tenth scale of a 16-cartridge dust collector, the model stands 18 in. high and will be used at trade shows and exhibitions, seminars, and customer meetings. Camfil APC has commissioned several of the one-tenth scale models to deploy to company locations worldwide.
Built by Scale Model Co. (Hawthorne, CA), a renowned NASA model builder, the dollhouse-sized dust collector is a faithful replica of the real Gold Series collector, both visually and functionally. Moving components in the model accurately demonstrate key maintenance features of the Gold Series – including the easy-open positive seal door, the tool-free process for filter change-out, and the drum lid lifter that enables one person to empty dust from the drum.
Camfil APC has created a six-minute video, called “1/10th: A Model of Quality and Innovation”, that showcases the demonstration model and describes the unique process through which the model maker so successfully replicated the dust collector in minute detail.
