Baghouse dust collectors are typically selected for some of the more challenging applications in an industrial workshop. Fabric bags typically last longer, have better release properties and have longer service life between filter replacement. Some of the more common applications for baghouse collectors have the following;
Elevated moisture content
Fibrous particulate (wood dust, paper dust) or heavy dust loading applications
Industrial baghouse collectors handle the toughest particulate applications such as abrasive dust, sticky and fibrous material or applications where moisture is present. Baghouse filters are selected based on particle size, abrasiveness, moisture content and adhesion characteristics, making them adaptable to most industrial applications.
Baghouse Dust Collectors: Long-lasting & Built for a Challenge
How Baghouse Dust Collectors Work
The design of the baghouse offers larger dirty air plenums, which reduces the media velocity and allows for higher air cloth ratios. The filters are suspended vertically from a steel plate referred to as the tube sheet. The tube sheet has a series of holes where the filters are secured and separate the dirty air plenum from the clean air plenum. The air enters the dirty air plenum, passes through the filters and then enters the clean air plenum where it is exhausted.
Accessing the filters is done from the top of the unit. Compressed air pulsed down through the center of the filter acts as mini explosion inside the filter pushing the dust collected off the outside of the filter. The dust falls down into the hopper where it is collected in a drum.
