All About Bag Filters
Bag filters have numerous applications and can be used in a wide range of manufacturing situations. Most often they are used in dust removal, chemical analysis, anti-static applications and wet paint removal applications. In the last few years, bag filters have been used in the petroleum industry as well as in the paper and ink industries.
One of the most common applications is in the paper and ink industries for crushing and washing. As paper and ink dry extremely fast they produce a lot of aerosols, many of which can be harmful to the environment. Paper bags and dust filters help to significantly reduce the number of airborne pollutants. The air filters in this paper and ink production applications are typically quite high efficiency and produce very low emission gasses. Thus the need for air filters has been substantially reduced with the use of bag filters.
Benefits and Efficiency
Another of the significant benefits derived from bag filters is their ability to operate effectively even in situations where high temperatures are present. These applications include such situations as hot room drying, industrial ovens, closed system metal chambers, etc. High-temperature chambers are generally used in applications where very high temperatures can be safely sustained for hours or days at a time. Such applications require high efficiency and long-term durability. It is for this reason that bag filters and pocket filters have become increasingly popular with such applications.
Bag filters and filtration systems can also be easily adapted to meet the specific needs of the users. For example, they can be designed to provide higher levels of filtration than standard ceramic filters, as they are more durable and they also have a higher level of filtering capacity. However, they need to be specified as to their power consumption, and they also need to be designed and engineered so that they suit the level of filtration needed.
All these reasons make bag filters great flexible options for meeting whatever you might need them for.
