What Makes Baghouse.com Brand Dust Collectors Superior To The Competition?
We Build Them Better. A Baghouse.com Brand Baghouse includes many standard value-added features such as larger inlet diffusers to prevent hopper turbulence, re-entrainment and facilitate material drop-out. An 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 while further enhancing material drop-out. And a “clean-on-demand” control system complete with integral pressure switches & gauges to initiate the cleaning cycle as required, based on operating differential pressure. This reduces cleaning frequency, compressed air consumption and excess wear to the filters. These are just some of the standard features we include in each Dust Collector we design. All of which help to extend filter life and reduce operating cost.

What actions can you reduce costs, and at the same time increase production? Improvements to your Dust Collection System can easily bring you improvements in production, while cutting costs due to increased efficiency, lower maintenance demands, less system downtime that leads to production stoppages, lower power consumption, and improvements in environmental emissions.
Questions To Ask Yourself

Reduce Cost Of Operation
Baghouse.com can help you to improve efficiency, and cut operating costs all at the same time. We have many different strategies we can implement that will achieve this goal. Here are just three options we have to offer:
- Change Filter Fabric – Increase operating tempter range with fiberglass or synthetic fibers. PTFE membrane coating can filter finer particulates and clean better and more…
- Pleated Filters – Dramatically increase filter cloth ratio and can last longer.
- New Technology – Convert old Reverse Air or Shaker design Collectors into the more modern Pulse Jet design to reduce operating cost, increase capacity and extend filter life among many other benefits.
By upgrading to the latest technology the industry has to offer, you can dramatically improve performance, and reduce power consumption. Higher efficiency Filters, Fabrics, and Baghouse designs, might even allow you to downsize your Baghouse, or (If you currently have more than one Collector) remove individual Collectors.
New equipment designs have a much longer service life than outdated models which lead to reduced maintenance costs.
Reduced Energy Usage
Higher Air to Cloth ratios will allow for more efficient use of fan power. This will in turn lead to energy savings, through lower overall system power consumption.

“If I were asked to assess a company’s operation, and I had to do so on the basis of only one indicator, I would look at their safety performance. If they are doing well with safety, with all their programs in place and functioning, then it is highly likely that they are being successful in all of the other key areas that we use to measure success. If they are not performing well on safety, then chances are they are in trouble in other areas as well.” – CEO Fortune 500 Company
The Price Of Safety – Industry Safety Facts
Every year in the U.S. governmental agencies issue tens of millions of dollars worth of fines for unsafe work practices:
- In 2005 the largest OSHA fines ever were issued to BP for negligence that lead to an explosion at one of its refineries. The fines were in the amounts of $97.43 million and $21.36 million. Add to OSHA fines, settlements, and court action brought on by victims, and the cost of neglecting safety cost BP a total of $215 million.
- The top ten most common OSHA violations in 2005 cost offenders a total of $15,892,908 in fines. Most of these infractions regard easy to overlook safety procedures such as Ladder Safety, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), and Machine Operating.
The Insurance Research Council estimates that over 3 million employees experience on-the-job injuries per year. While insurance covers the cost of employee health care, other expenses that are not covered by insurance, can be 4 to 5 times greater:
- Employee wages (e.g. wages to the injured employee and their replacement); Repairing damaged equipment or products; Time & resources invested in investigating the accident and filling out paperwork; Overtime by other employees and supervisors to compensate for the loss of production; Costs associated with a possible lawsuit (e.g. lawyer’s fees, settlement, bad publicity).
