  • 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 ...

  • Assessment of bagging operators exposure to with pvc airborne particulates

    The hazard potential of airborne particles is dependent on the mass concentration as well as the particle size. Particle size determines the deposition site within the respiratory tract and the subsequent health effects. Particle-size is considered from two viewpoints: The sizefraction most closely associated with the specific health effect, and the mass concentration within that size fraction. ...

  • Let’s Talk About the Design of Cartridge Dust Collectors

    When it comes to choosing a cartridge filter, the choice usually depends on the application. Systems with finer particles require a cartridge filter, and these come in the choice of two. Surface and Depth-Type Filters A surface filteris ideal when filtering remains of similar-sized particles. Depth-type filters capture pollutants and particles ...

  • Hester Industries: Whirl / Wet Combines High Efficiency Wet Dust Collection with Low Maintenance and Operating Costs.

    Chicken processor Hester Industries bought a polypro Whirl/Wet to serve the breading operation at the company’s Moorefield, WV plant. The breading generated fugitive dust; the bag collectors originally installed to collect the sticky dust were not adequate to the task. The hygroscopic nature of the dust made the Whirl / Wet dust collector a cost-effective choice. Excess spice/flour dust is ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ineffective cleaning in generic baghouses

    ABSTRACT: Background In a typical “generic” baghouse application, the cleaning is accomplished by back-flushing the filter with compressed air that travels through an orifice hole in a purge tube (blow pipe) and through a venturi. A typical generic cleaning system allows dust to be filtered at an air-to-cloth ratio of 5:1. That means for every 5 CFM of airflow, there is 1 square foot ...

  • Advantages of cleaning without a venturi in baghouse collectors

    ABSTRACT: Background The cleaning cycle is the most important part of the dust collector because it controls efficiency and media life. In order to clean a row of bags in a reverse pulse jet baghouse first the flow of filtered air must be momentarily stopped and then back flushed or “induce” air to knock the dust cake off the outside of the filter media. A venturi at the top of the ...
