Cartridge powder recovery systems are recovery systems that have almost 100% recovery of over-sprayed powder. The powder gets collected on a filter as it passes through. The highest powder recovery is possible when the filters are new or thoroughly cleaned. Cartridge filter collectors have become one of the most popular types of powder separation and recovery systems available.
The emergence of the cartridge filter recovery system in the early 1980's contributed greatly to powder coating growth because this type of system allowed finishers to use as much as 99% of the powder they bought. This advancement in powder recovery dramatically increased powder coating productivity and allowed finishers to achieve significant cost savings by switching from liquid to powder.
