 If your manufacturing processes create dust or other particulates, a baghouse may be the best alternative to the removal of these potential airborne hazards. Baghouses eliminate contaminants through a proven filtration process, leaving behind fresh air and cleaner facilities. They are long-lasting and often their maintenance and operational costs are more affordable than alternative ventilation systems.

We design and manufacture each baghouse or baghouse series to fit individual ventilation needs, taking into consideration: EPA discharge rates; byproducts; size and type of facility; air-to-cloth ratios.

Baghouse Ventilation Process

  1. Dirty air enters the baghouse through an inlet duct.
  2. Dirty air hits the inlet baffle (impact plates), causing heavy particulates to drop into the hopper or drop-out box below. This also causes the air to slow velocity for more efficient filtration.
  3. Air flows through the collector’s filtration bags, collecting fine dust or particulates on the outside of the bags as the clean air passes through the bags.
  4. The clean air is then moved to the stack and out into the environment, or recycled back into the facility to minimize heating costs.
  5. The collected particulates on the bags are dislodged by reverse-blown air and conveyed out to a disposal system.
