Solving baghouse performance problems in spray-drying systems
This article explains how to keep your baghouse operating properly despite a spray-drying application’s moist conditions and aggressive filter-cleaning cycles.
A baghouse for separating dried product from heated air plays a critical role in spray drying. Yet it can be a challenge to keep the bag filters clean so they can provide top filtration performance during this moist, and sometimes high-temperature, process. Keeping sticky particles from building up on the baghouse hopper wall during this process can also be difficult. The results — including poor product quality, high differential pressure across the bag filters, short filter life, and reduced production — can be costly.
