Popular misconceptions about pulse-jet dust collectors

Pulse-jet dust collectors use high-pressure jets of compressed air, discharged from nozzles in timed intervals [pulses], to clean accumulated dust from collection filters or bags. These collectors effectively vent size reduction machinery, spray dryers, separators, calciners, mixers, packaging machinery, mechanical conveyors, and other process equipment.

Process dust control is much more critical on function than air pollution control. For instance, a 10 percent airflow loss in a pulse-jet dust collector can upset the process enough to demand immediate correction, while a 25 percent airflow loss in an air pollution control system may go undetected. This article dispels 18 common misconceptions about pulse-jet dust collectors.
