Cartridge dust collectors come in various sizes and configurations allowing the designer to fit the collector in smaller spaces if needed. The collector can be built in a vertical orientation for narrow spaces or stacked side by side to fit areas with limited overhead space. Filters, located in the dirty air plenum, are positioned in a vertical or horizontal orientation and utilize a pleated filter media to remove the contaminates from the air stream. Each cartridge filter has an average of 250 Sq Ft providing more media per cubic feet when compared to a baghouse dust collector.
Amtech ATV series dust collectors are a single housing construction completely seam welded unit. This heavy duty construction gives both Torit and Farr dust collectors a run for the money and is evenly matched in all aspects of quality construction and feature design. The Amtech ATV series utilizes a patented down flow technology to prevent dust re-entrainment during cleaning cycles. The self-cleaning filter design uses a venturie pulse cleaning method to induce a higher volume of air for a more effective cleaning system. Construction: 11 gauge Carbon steel powder coated inside & outside CFM Capacity: 500 – 50,000 Compressed air Consumption: 2.5 CF/pulse Filter Configuration: Vertical filters with front access door for entry.
The AQC Maxflo-MC dust collectors are plug and play. They ship fully assembled and ready to go with only duct connection required. These units have automatic pulse self-cleaning cartridge collectors and come in a range of sizes. The unit ships fully assembled with a quiet anti-spark BI inclined impeller to handle medium to high static pressures. The acoustic lining on the clean air outlet makes this a quiet unit suitable for indoors. The integrated control panel provides reliable filter cleaning for the horizontal filter configuration with an access door for each filter. AQC also manufactures bag collectors with both manual and automatic cleaning options.
Filter-One Pulse-Tron unit is a single housing construction completely seam welded. Filter-One is known for their ability to provide custom design solutions based on unique applications. The Pulse-Tron is designed for heavy duty applications and can utilize either a horizontal or vertical filter arrangement configuration. Filters can be accessed through front access door or a dual access (front & back) design. Pulse-Jet technology is used to automatically clean the filter based from differential pressure monitoring. Accessories are too numerous to list but include, High-Temperature cut off, enhanced filter cleaning, abrasive inlet guard, explosion vents, sprinkler heads, and audible arms. Construction: 11 gauge Carbon steel powder coated inside & outside CFM Capacity: 500 – 50,000 Compressed air Consumption: 2.5 CF/pulseFilter Configuration: Vertical filters with front access door for entry.

The benefits of Plymovents’ dust collector is its modular design making it easy to configure horizontally or vertically. The (2) cartridge or (4) cartridge modual design also allows for future expansion of the collector by adding filter modules. It is easily assembled in tight spaces and is designed for light dust applications such as welding fumes, cutting, grinding, or nuisance dust of a non-combustible nature. The Plymovent MDB dust collector has a patented “RAM Air” automatic filter cleaning technology for effective filter cleaning and reduced compressed air consumption. Construction: 14 gauge Carbon steel powder coated inside & outside CFM Capacity: 500 – 20,000 Compressed air Consumption: 1.8 CF/pulseFilter Configuration: Horizontal filters with front access hatch per filter.
The Advantages of Cartridge Dust Collection Systems
Cartridge dust collectors are self-cleaning and utilize compressed air to blow the collected dust off the filters. Each row of filters has a solenoid valve, electrically or pneumatically controlled, to release a burst of compressed air through the center of the filter. The solenoid valve is activated by a controller that will activate the valve through a timer or by monitoring the differential pressure across the filters. When pressure builds up across the filter due to dust loading, the valve releases compressed air to pulse clean the filter. Dust drops off the filter down into the hopper where it remains in a collection drum.
Removing filters from a cartridge dust collector is easier compared to a baghouse collector. Dust collectors with filters in the horizontal filter configuration can stack filters two deep. The access door allows the removal of this row of filters only which serves as a benefit if a bag-in / bag-out process is required to prevent the service technician from being exposed to the hazardous dust. Dust collectors with filters in the vertical position utilize a larger access door revealing all the filters reducing time in opening and closing multiple access doors for filter access.
Cartridge dust collectorion systems are commonly used for welding fume, nutraceutical dust, chemical and organic compounds in the food and flavor, industry and various other applications. Some benefits of cartridge dust collectors compared to bag house collectors include;
