The advantages of pleated bags
Increased durability, better efficiency, energy savings, reduced emission levels and easier installation.
Optimise the performance of your collector
The drop out box
The drop out box is the distance between the bottom of the filters and the hopper. The greater the distance, the better the conditions are for the heavier dust particles to be dropped from the airflow before contacting the filter surface area. To optimize the drop out box, install pleated bags which are shorter, as well as having more surface area. The increased drop out box removes the filter from the abrasion zone.
The Hopper should not be used for storage. Evacuation equipment (rotary valves, screw conveyors, etc.) should be sized to unload hopper before accumulation occurs. Units with slide gates should be left open and equipped with sealed drum adapters.
Choice of media
All dust types have specific characteristics and requires different handling. Therefore, it is often not enough to use a plain polyester media. Purchasing an enhanced treated/ coated media (for example ePTFE membrane, HO treatment or antistatic surface) often turns out to be profitable as a result of better pulse cleaning.
Some of the factors that influence the right choice of media are humidity, temperature, conductivity and acid.
