The Bag Filter is a dust control device whose purpose is removing the dust contained in the exhaust gases from industrial process. It is applied to the various applications with different temperature and type of gasses by selecting the filter media accordingly.
The advantage of Bag Filter over the cyclone collector is that it can collect the submicron particles.
The Bag Filter separates dust from the exhaust gas by collecting them with the filter media. The dust is accumulated on the surface of filter media. And the filter media is cleaned by reverse airflow called backwashing (pulse-jet).
The Bag Filter has a selection of filter media. The materials from which the filter is made varies from polyester, heat-resistant nylon to glass fiber. It is selected depending on the conditions such as characteristics of gas or dust.
The filter media is consumable parts. When it is damaged or worn, the dust may leak outdoors.
Nowadays, Triboelectric Dust Monitor is installed at the downstream of Bag Filter so that it can find the dust leaks and prevent the air pollution.
