Pulse-Jet Filter Bags
FilterPro manufactures pulse-jet and plenum pulse filter bags. A pulse jet collector uses a pulse of air to clean the filter bags, while they are on line. The cleaning system usually consists of compressed air, a solenoid valve, a diaphragm valve, and blow pipes. Pulse-Jet collectors have become very common and are a very efficient way to remove accumulated dust on a filter bag. Filter bags are one of two distinct styles. The construction is usually either a top load (snap band, or flange) filter or a bottom load (raw edge) filter.
Normally A top load bag will have a snap band, flange, raw edge, or ring (metal or buna rubber) on the top end of the filter. The bottom of the filter has either a disk sewn into the end, or can be sewn flat. Pulse jet filters are most commonly made of 16 ounce needlefelt. Multiple materials (medias) and options such as ground wire to meet the dust collector requirements are available for a pulse jet filter bag.
Shaker collectors clean the filter using mechanical energy or motion. A shaker will normally have the open end of the filter on the collector floor and will be attached to a mechanism that literally shakes the filter bag to clean. Shaker bags may have a snap band, raw edge, hem, or cord style configuration on the open side of the filter bag. The closed end of the filter will have a way to hang it from the shaker mechanism. This may be a strap, loop, grommet, or A-hanger. Filter bags are commonly made from woven polyester or polyester needlefelt 10 or 12 ounce). FilterPro’s team will help with media that will provide you the performance you expect. Anti-collapse rings may be used to hold the bags open for maximum cleaning, and air flow.
Reverse-Air Filter Bags
A reverse air dust collector uses a sweep that blows air into the filters clean side reversing the air flow and cleaning the filter bags. Common top designs are compression band, strap top, loop top, cord top cuff, or grommet top bags. Bottom types include raw edge, cuffed, compression band or snap band cuff. Anti-collapse rings may be used to hold the bags open for maximum cleaning, and air flow.
For additional information on the operation of dust collectors see “Collector Operation & Cleaning” under the “Education” tab.
