The MDB-4 Compact is a filtration unit with an unbeaten technology
- Automated production processes
- (Laser) welding
With the MDB-COMPACT Plymovent brings you the proven and unbeaten technology of the MultiDust Bank in a compact and pre-assembled range of models. The MDB-COMPACT is available with a wide choice of filter media and can be used for almost any airborne dust pollutant*. Due to its compact design the MDB-COMPACT is the ideal choice for applications where a filter is needed near to the source of pollution.
- Pre-assembled compact design with integrated fan
- Front panel cartridge changing
- Easy to empty dust drawer
- SilentFlowTM duct free noise reduction for compact installation
- Ram-AirTM pulse amplifier provides better cleaning for longer filter cartridge life and lower pressure loss
Step up your game against fumes and dust from automated production processes, (laser) welding and cutting with one of these options

Plymovent is renowned for its expertise in capturing and filtering fumes from metal welding and cutting. In this industry, the MDB-COMPACT is the filter of choice for automated production processes that need a small dedicated filter like (laser) welding, and cutting. Whether the fumes are dry or oily** the MDB-COMPACT can do the job.
SilentFlowTM duct free silencer
The MDB-COMPACT has an integrated fan placed in a SilentFlowTM sound absorbing box. SilentFlowTM reduces both the mechanical and airflow noise of the fan. An acceptable noise level without additional ducting*** at the exhaust side of the filter makes the overall installation more compact and easier to install.
Ram-AirTM low operational costs
A Ram-AirTM pulse amplifier is placed in each filter cartridge and disperses the pulse energy directly to the filter medium. The results are significant: cleaner filters, lower pressure drop, less compressed air and energy consumption. Ram-AirTM means low operational costs.
Plymovent BiCo filter cartridges last longer
Filter life is not only determined by cleaning efficiency but more often by the strength of the bonding between the fibers in the media. When the bonding breaks, the pressure drop rises immediately and airflow drops. This normally means a costly filter cartridge replacement. Plymovent BiCo cartridges are based on state of the art bi-component technology. Plymovent selects only media with a proven performance and that is why Plymovent cartridges last longer.
Filter control via intuitive touch screen
The MDB-COMPACT PRO filter system is combined with the intelligent control platform ControlPro. It offers an extensive feature package to monitor and control the filter cleaning system based on adjustable threshold values, the type of extraction fan, the required airflow and the corresponding fan speed. By means of the user-friendly HMI with intuitive touch screen, all parameter settings of the system are configurable through a clear and easy accessible menu structure. And moreover, it gives a clear insight into the system status and performance at all times. When there are multiple MDB filter systems, they can be controlled by one single ControlPro.
If desired, you can extend this control system with ControlPro Connect. This is an advanced web portal that gives you the power to monitor, manage and control any number of filters from your PC, tablet or smartphone.

Physical dimensions and properties
*) excl. switches and cable glands
Compressed air system
• In: G ⅜ in.
• Out: 12 mm
* The compact design of the unit, in combination with a high air performance, is achieved by using 60 Hz fan technology. For this reason it is necessary to install a variable frequency inverter (VFD) for 50 Hz power grids (e.g. in Europe). For 60 Hz power grids a frequency inverter is optional.
Options and accessories
• From Ø 400 mm to Ø 16 in.
An adapter from Ø 355 mm to 14 in. is not necessary
• VFD-4 (4 kW / 5 HP)
• VFD-5.5 (5,5 kW / 7.5 HP)
• VFD-11 (11 kW / 15 HP)
Refer to Table 1 for selection of frequency inverter (in the Product Data Sheet document at 'Downloads')
