Pulse Jet Baghouses
Baghouse are the most versatile dust collector style and can be used in all applications. Baghouse collectors with traditional bag filters are preferred for applications with larger or mixed range of dust particle sizes, heavier dust loading, fibrous/sticky dusts or higher temperatures (normally up to 550F, in some cases up to 750F with specialty fabrics). The filters in baghouses have a much longer useful service life compared to cartridges and can handle much harsher applications.
We manufacture several styles of pulse jet baghouses to fit different applications and customer preferences. In most cases, we recommend our top entry baghouse lines. These models allow for quick and easy access to the snap band filter bags, and allow for easy removal of individual bags without having to remove others. Our top entry models come with the option for top hatch access or an enclosed walk-in plenum. We also offer bottom access baghouses (also called bottom/side loading) for use in applications with limited overhead clearance. Additionally, our top and bottom load units are also available in special configurations such as bin vents for use on silos, mixers, etc., as well as square, round or rectangular layout and high inlet options for overcoming high interstitial velocity (can velocity) issues.
For certain applications, cartridge collectors provide distinct advantages over baghouses. Because cartridges pack in more fabric area into a smaller space they can be much smaller than baghouses for the same airflow. They also will have fewer filters and these can be replaced from outside the collector, which greatly reduces potential safety hazards while reducing labor costs and time required to change filters. Applications well-suited to cartridge collectors include those with very fine, light dust and moderate dust loading and temperatures such as powder coating, metalworking, bulk material handling, sanding, blasting, fume collection, pharmaceutical manufacturing, thermal spray, welding, and certain woodworking processes among others.
