Dust Collection Systems
In nearly every industrial facility, a dust collection system is a vital component for efficient operation. Without them, countless industrial processes would simply not be possible. Examples include cement production, steel foundries, pharmaceutical production, among many others.
Baghouse.com can provide the exact dust collection system you require. Unlike many of our competitors who offer large product lines of “cookie cutter” designs, Baghouse.com custom manufactures each collector to meet the specific needs of the customer without charging the inflated rates commonly associated with custom design.

How Dust Collection Systems Work
In essence it works much like a vacuum cleaner, albeit on an industrial scale. Within a central system, a powerful fan creates suction throughout a large system of ductwork that runs throughout the plant to the specific areas of the facility where airborne dust is generated. The suction pulls the dirty air through the ductwork system, eventually leading it to the dust collector. In a fabric collector, or baghouse, the dirty air is cleaned of harmful particles. Dust collectors also protects our environment be preventing the release of damaging pollutants and workers health by limiting their exposure to harmful substances.
Fabric Dust Collectors
Baghouse.com brand dust collectors are known the world over as the most powerful and longest lasting baghouses available. Standard value-added features include such as larger inlet diffusers to prevent hopper turbulence, re-entrainment and facilitate material drop-out. Our baghouses also include an added expanded quiescent free-board zone between the inlet and the bottom of the filter bags to reduce unnecessary dust load, filter abrasion and interstitial velocity that further enhancing material drop-out all before the air stream even reaches the filters.
A “clean-on-demand” control system complete with integral pressure switches & gauges assures the your dust collector will only initiate the cleaning cycle as required, based on operating differential pressure. This further reduces cleaning frequency, compressed air consumption and excess wear to the filters. These features, among many others come standard on every baghouse model. All of which are designed to produce more cleaning power, extend filter life and reduce operating cost.
Baghouse.com brand dust collectors can also be manufactured in certain special configurations such as stainless steel, or food-grade construction. Additional add-ons include spark arrestors, explosion vents, etc.

Cartridge Dust Collectors
Cartridge Dust Collectors use perforated metal cartridges that are cylindrical shaped and open on one or both ends lined with a pleated nonwoven filtering media. Once installed, one end of the cartridge is sealed off and the open end is used for the clean exhaust. Similar to a baghouse, the gas stream is forced through the outside of the cartridge to the inside where it then exits back into the system.
While no long as widely employed as they once were, cartridge dust collectors are uniquely suited for certain applications involving certain special shaped and sized dusts (granular shaped & less than 50 microns) and low grain loading levels (less than 5 grains per cubic foot). Certain dusts require minimal flexing of the media during the cleaning process; thus, cartridge collectors will perform satisfactory in these applications. Uses include but are not limited to: grinding or sandblast applications, welding fumes, laser and plasma cutter fumes, graphite, pharmaceutical and fine chemical powders.
Baghouse.com customer designs and manufacturers all three of these designs to fit each individual customers needs. Our engineers and knowledgeable staff will work with you to find which of our products will meet your needs.
Cyclone Collectors are often employed as an “initial stage” collector to lighten heavy dusts loads before being sent to a “primary stage” fabric collector. By removing coarse particles from the gas stream, and allowing later stage fabric collectors to solely remove finer particles, these collectors increase the efficiency and service life of fabric collectors (baghouses) and their filters. Thus protecting your larger and most costly investment in a dust collection system from unnecessary wear and tear.
