Cartridge dust collectors are used to enhance the quality of air released from industrial and commercial processes by collecting dust and other impurities from air or gas. Designed to handle high-volume dust loads, a cartridge collector system consists of a blower, dust filter, a filter-cleaning system, and a dust receptacle or dust removal system.

Cartridge collectors use perforated metal cartridges that contain a pleated, nonwoven filtering media, as opposed to woven or felt bags used in baghouses. The pleated design allows for a greater total filtering surface area than in a conventional bag of the same diameter, the greater filtering area results in a reduced air to media ratio, pressure drop, and overall collector size.

Get powerful cartridge collectors from Baghouse America. Whether meeting new environmental compliance or safety requirements or upgrading existing equipment, we can configure an optimal dust collection solution ideally suited to your application, process, facility requirements and budget. A cartridge dust collector ideal for several applications including thermally generated fumes from welding, laser / plasma cutting operations as well as other common nuisance dusts.

Our Donaldson Torit replacement Cartridge collectors are available in single use or continuous duty designs. In single-use cartridge collectors, the dirty cartridges are changed and collected dirt is removed while the collector is off. In the continuous duty design, the cartridges are cleaned by the conventional pulse-jet cleaning system. Downward flow collectors effectively remove harmful dusts and smoke from industrial manufacturing processes. With its patented pulse-cleaning technology, greater air capacity and quick and easy maintenance, there’s no better air filtration method for your manufacturing facility. Situated inside a factory or outdoors, these high-performance, energy efficient collectors are expandable in the field to meet increased capacity needs at any time due to their modular design.

The patented pulse-cleaning technology used in our collectors provides optimized cleaning power to most effectively pulse off dust from the filter resulting in increased pulse cleaning energy, lower pressure-drop, longer cartridge filter life and energy savings.

Important parameters in specifying dust collectors include airflow the velocity of the air stream created by the vacuum producer; system power, the power of the system motor, usually specified in horsepower; storage capacity for dust and particles, and minimum particle size filtered by the unit. Other considerations when choosing a dust collection system include the temperature, moisture content, and the possibility of combustion of the dust being collected.

Systems for fine removal may only contain a single filtration system (such as a filter bag or cartridge). However, most units utilize a primary and secondary separation/filtration system. In many cases, the heat or moisture content of dust can negatively affect the filter media of a baghouse or cartridge dust collector. A cyclone separator or dryer may be placed before these units to reduce heat or moisture content before reaching the filters. Furthermore, some units may have third and fourth stage filtration. All separation and filtration systems used within the unit should be specified by the dust collector manufacturers.

Our best-in-class cartridge dust collectors capable of reducing equipment size and the number of required filters by up to 40% compared to a typical cartridge collector. A smaller collector helps lower the initial purchase price, reduces filter replacement costs, and opens up valuable manufacturing floor space.

The horizontal cartridge dust collector provides reliable, high-efficiency filtration in a compact size. Quality construction and simple design ensure long-term, trouble-free operation. The Dust Flow is suitable for a wide range of applications from controlling fumes and nuisance dusts to product recovery.

The benefits include:

  • Filter cartridges are quickly and conveniently serviced from outside the collector; no confined space entry permit needed.
  • Modular panelized design allows easy capacity increases. Multiple units share common hoppers and minimized clean air ducting.
  • Compact design saves space and is suitable for spot filtration.
