  • Solid / gas separation with fabric filters

    A myriad of filter media are utilized today for separation of particulate matter in industrial gas filtration applications. These media range from single use (deposable) to semi-permanent media and include fiber, fabric, ceramic, membrane, metal mesh, and sintered metal media. Semi-permanent media are usually cleanable, either on or off-line, and are primarily intended for long-term (up to ...

  • Improve performance by installing a larger filter bag

    YOU MIGHT NOT NEED a more powerful dust collector after all. That’s the word from woodworkers who’ve replaced the original equipment filterbags on their collectors with bags that are more efficient. You might ask, “What can be more efficient than the 1 micron bag that came with my collector?” The answer is a 1 micron bag that’s properly sized for your machine and ...

  • To prevent blinding in dust collection systems, consider filter type, filter size and selection of the filter media used

    All dust collection systems, regardless of size, share a common problem—dust blinding. Simply stated, blinding is defined as when dust particles plug the holes in a filter and stop the flow of air through the filter, resulting in the dust collector performing poorly. All types of collectors, whether stand-alone units, cyclones or full-scale baghouses, are subject to blinding. To better ...

  • Advantages and basic facts for the use of Lenzing PROFILEN based filter media

    Normal PTFE filter bags have a very good chemical resistance but on the other hand they do not have a high dust separation efficiency. Lenzing PROFILEN® is a compromise between a high efficiency and a high flow rate after cleaning of gases with all the positive aspects of normal PTFE bags. Basics To acquire a better feeling and understanding for the advantages of Lenzing PROFILEN® it is necessary ...

  • Dust collection dilemma: ostrich egg dust

    Rick Peil from the Toolking Superstore was presented with an interesting dust collection dilemma. Tamera Seevers creates unique fine art out of ostrich eggs (www.tameraseeversstudio.com). Carving and finishing the ostrich eggs takes up to three months and creates a very fine, ostrich egg dust. Her problem was with her 1-micron bag on the dust collection system, the dust was still escaping into ...

  • Efficient Removal of Organic and Inorganic Suspended Solids

    ABSTRACT The Romans used sand as a filter media to treat their drinking water 2000 years ago. Centuries ago water was poured through layers of cloth to remove visible impurities in drinking water with fabric bags and paper cartridges soon following. Darcy employed sand beds in Dijon, France over 200 years ago to conduct his experiments for developing his famous equation to describe fluid flow ...

  • Profile: Performance of diatomite/iron oxide modified nonwoven membrane used in membrane bioreactor process for wastewater reclamation

    MBR technology has obvious advantages over conventional activated sludge process such as high pollutant removal efficiency, complete solid–liquid separation and little sludge waste. However, high membrane cost, intensive energy consumption and serious membrane fouling limited its wide application. Therefore, low-cost filters, such as nonwoven, mesh and filter cloth have been applied to ...

  • Water and lifestyle fact sheet

    Water touches nearly every aspect of people’s lives. Only one percent of water that comes into a home is used for drinking. The other 99 percent is working water, proving that the benefits of high-quality water extend far beyond the kitchen faucet. When water quality is subpar, the effects reverberate throughout the home. The elements in hard water build up in pipes and appliances and cause ...
