(Do not apply if PTFE bags are used)
Filter Bags do the filtering!
No, It’s actually the control dust layer that does the filtering.
Clean bags are the key to efficient baghouse operation!
No, Excessive cleaning knocks off the filtering control dust layer, leaving bag media exposed and accelerating bag wear. (like Pulse Jet cleaning with high pressure compressed air)
Filtering wears out bags!
No, The main factor in filter media wear is actually cleaning energy.(like Pulse Jet cleaning with high pressure compressed air)
Correct Filter Bag Selection
Keep in mind when choosing fabric filter media!
· Baghouse operating temperature
· Abrasion resistance required
· Resistance to cleaning energy
· Compatibility with gas stream chemistry
· Air-to-cloth ratio
· Cleaning method
