fabric filters are also known as bag houses or bag filters. Due to the high efficiencies of bag filters, they are the most dominant particulate removal devices in the industrial processes today. The definition of each type of fabric filters is according to the functionality especially the method in which the collected dust can be removed from the filter surface. Reverse pulse jet fabric filters are individual filters that are either supported by a metal cage, also known as a filter cage, or a specific mechanism called Pulse Pleats. A short burst of compressed air is injected through a manifold over a set of filters that are responsible for the cleansing of the filter elements. These functionalities therefore make pulse jet to be one of the preferred bag houses. Pulse jet filters have an advantage over shaker and reverse air filters in the sense that the operation can be done continuously while they are being cleaned without an interruption of the flow as no module of the filter needs to be isolated from the gas flow.
There size also helps in the air-to-cloth ratio to be more effective in the cleansing of air and therefore there more efficient in the cleansing process. These are mechanical bag houses which contain tubular filter bags that are fastened onto a cell plate which is at the bottom of the bag house and is suspended from horizontal beams which are also located at the bottom of the bag house. The motor driven shaft is the unique component of the shaker however; this type of filter is less preferred because of these mechanical abilities which make a lot of industrial processes to drag in terms of time and therefore they are not as efficient as pulse jet filters.
Lastly, reverse air filters at the other types of fabric filters that are available. Filtration has to be stopped in the compartment where cleaning has to be done before another cleansing cycle begins. The flow of the gas helps to maintain the shape of the bag however; rigid rings are sewn to prevent the total collapse and the chaffing of the fabric during the cleansing cycle. Bag filters particularly benefit many industries because the company is able to make a choice as to how the filtration system is able to be customized by the way of a proper design and they installation in exact accordance to the demands and requirements of the industry the filtering system that is required for its operations. Hot gas emissions can contain highly risky level of contaminants and pollutants.
