Finding and fixing problems with your pulse-jet baghouse
Less-than-stellar performance from a pulse-jet baghouse usually stems from dust loading or filter cleaning problems, or a combination of both. Left unchecked, these problems can lead to process bottlenecks and cost your plant money. This article explains how you can modify your pulse-jet baghouse to overcome these problems and improve filtering performance.
Pulse-jet baghouses are popular in bulk solids processing plants because of their relatively low cost and small footprint. Bag filters for baghouses are available in many medias and finishes to provide specific filtering efficiencies while handling a range of temperatures, chemistries, and moisture levels. Yet dust loading and filter cleaning problems keep many baghouses from performing as they were designed.
