DFH is a ready-to-install snow and droplet separator for use as an air intake in cold climates. The unit provides protection against all sorts of snow particles and rain, hence it prevents the intake from getting plugged with ice. DFH is typically used in cold climates, with snowfall, hail, drifting snow particles and high relative humidity.
DFH separator is available in aluminum and stainless steel alloys and thus fits a wide range of applications. It can be configured to various individual performance and installation situations, providing a cost effective solution. The choice of sensor options allows for the best adaptation to the weather conditions in order to reduce the electrical consumption.
DFH consists of a separator and a control unit. The separator unit accommodates vertical profiles with heating devices. Captured snow and hail particles are either sublimated or melted, once they have coalesced on the heated surface. Melted particles gravitate down and drain the eliminator through a heated exit.
Depending on the application, the control unit can incorporate an integrated FI switch, sensors and additional electrical components. The control unit comes as a separate part and is installed in close proximity to separator. A single unit can control several separators, provided that they are installed in the same location.
