Dust Collection Equipment: What You Need to Know

Everything your workplace needs to protect air quality

Dust collection is something you don’t think about until you take a breath full of particles, contaminants, or other hazardous work-related material.

You may be familiar with the basics and importance of finely-tuned dust collection equipment, like workplace safety and healthy air quality. Still, you may not be privy to the various types of equipment available, including:

  • Baghouse dust collectors
  • Dust collector bags and cages
  • Portable dust collectors
  • Industrial fans and blowers

Today, we’ll review the vital details of dust collection devices so that you can find the equipment that’s right for your business.

Baghouse dust collector

Baghouse dust collectors sometimes referred to as fabric filters, remove impurities from gas streams by depositing them onto fabric material. The process looks something like this:

  • Gas stream enters the baghouse
  • It’s then drawn through the bags
  • The dust is gathered on the filter media surface
  • This process continues until cleaning is needed
  • Cleaning takes place while the baghouse is still in use or while offline

Baghouse dust collectors tend to be the most widely used, not just because they’re cost-effective but also because they’re capable of greater than 99% of collection efficiencies.* Is this option right for your business? View our baghouse dust collector’s brochure to learn more.

Bags and cages

What’s one of the keys to a dust collector’s success? Proper filter components! A proper filter helps you achieve and maintain optimal performance.

Fabric filter bags and their internal support system, known as cages, work together to ensure the filter stays open while in use. The right filter bag and cage can not only improve safety and maintain a high level of dust collection but also reduce maintenance costs, making the filter a vital component of your dust collection equipment.

Here at Baghouse America, we manufacture dust collector bags and cages in-house, which allows us to test every item for proper fit, ensure long bag life, and rest easy knowing they meet our high standards. Request a quote for Baghouse America dust collector bags and cages today!

Portable dust collectors

Find yourself frequently dealing with cutting or welding smoke or even grinding dust and require an economical solution to your particle problems? If so, a portable dust collector should be on your radar!

Easy to maneuver and place right where you need them, these handy air cleaners gather contaminated air through an arm and bring the stream into the collection device, where it hits flow distribution plates. Contaminated air is then pushed upward and into the waiting filter cartridges. Purified air is then released, creating a safe, breathable work environment.

Compact, cost-effective, easy to maneuver, and able to meet indoor emissions standards stipulated by the state, our Baghouse Portable Dust Collector may be the perfect air filtration solution for your needs.
