  • Aerosol filtration in nanofiber filter media

    Nanofiber filter media are used in air filter applications where a compact filtration system with very high overall and fractional efficiency and low initial pressure drop  is required.  Moreover, because the aerodynamic drag force on nanofibers is very low compared to the drag on the large dust particles collected on the nanofiber media, this media is ideal for application to ...

  • Filter Your Air with Cartridge Dust Collector

    A cartridge dust collector uses filtering cartridges and is a self-cleaning dust collector. The cartridges it uses are made from synthetic fibers and cellulose that is treated chemically. This ensures the particles are efficiently collected without forming an excessive pressure drop in the system. Structure A cartridge dust collector uses an air-jet cleaning structure to preserve ...

  • Which Portable Dust Collector Is Right for Your Workplace?

    When it comes to clean air regulations and dust collection systems, then these are nothing new. However, the new thing is the pressure that is being put on the implementation of those regulations. Even the smallest of companies and shops go through expensive fines if they do not obey this rule. Small areas may not need air filtration frequently and may also not have the required space to install ...

  • 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 ...

  • How a wet dust collector can prevent a violent explosion (and more!)

    Explosive dust is a major concern among metal finishing operations, and recent changes in the National Fire Protection Association regulations have made compliance more difficult. Metalwork grinding and sanding produces a fine metallic dust that, even after being filtered from the air, can smolder, catch fire, or even explode violently if it’s exposed to a spark. Aluminum, lithim, ...

  • What are filter aids?

    Filter Aids” is a group of inert materials that can be used in filtration pretreatment. There are two objectives related to the addition of filter aids. One is to form a layer of second medium which protects the basic medium of the system. This is commonly referred to as “precoat”. The second objective of filter aids is to improve the flow rate by decreasing cake compressibility ...
