How Our Baghouses Work

Our filter bags or cartridges are cleaned using compressed air. Dust is collected on the exterior of the filters as the air passes through the filter into the bag support cage. This clean air then flows up through the center of the filter and exits through the venturi at the tube sheet and enters the clean air plenum.

At regular intervals, an electrical timer triggers the cleaning cycle of a group of bags. Compressed air is released through a diaphragm valve into a header pipe above the bags. This diaphragm valve can be adjusted to be open 50-500 milliseconds. The off-time of the diaphragm is also adjustable and is determined by the amount of dust loading on the filter. The dust that accumulates in the bottom of the baghouse is easily accessible for cleanout or recycle. ACT can integrate automated dump systems to direct the materials for disposal or recycle.
