Best Baghouse Filter Bags
Baghouse filter bags (sometimes referred to as envelopes) are oval or round tubes, typically 15–30 feet and 5 to 12 inches in diameter, made of woven or felted material. Depending on chemical and/or moisture content of the gas stream, its temperature, and other conditions, bags may be constructed out of cotton, nylon, polyester, fiberglass or other materials.
Nonwoven materials are either felted or membrane. Non-woven materials are attached to a woven backing (scrim). Felted filters contain randomly placed fibers supported by a woven backing material (scrim). In a membrane filter, a thin, porous membrane is bound to the scrim. High energy cleaning techniques such as pulse jet require felted fabrics.
Woven filters have a definite repeated pattern. Low energy cleaning methods such as shaking or reverse air allow for woven filters. Various weaving patterns such as plain weave, twill weave, or sateen weave, increase or decrease the amount of space between individual fibers. The size of the space affects the strength and permeability of the fabric. A tighter weave corresponds with low permeability and, therefore, more efficient capture of fine particles.
Reverse air bags have anti-collapse rings sewn into them to prevent pancaking when cleaning energy is applied. Pulse jet filter bags are supported by a metal cage, which keeps the fabric taut. To lengthen the life of dust collector filter bags, a thin layer of PTFE (Teflon) membrane may be adhered to the filtering side of the fabric, keeping dust particles from becoming embedded in the filter media fibers.
BHA offers a full range of industrial filters to fit any dust collection system, including pulse jet, reverse air, shaker and cartridge systems.

By creating a more uniform material with smaller pore size that provides better surface loading of dust and prevents penetration deep into the media. In contrast, conventional polyester bags are manufactured with a needling process that creates larger pores where dust can embed into the fabric, inhibiting cleaning and reducing bag life.
Since there are so many different industries that utilize dust collection, filter bags adopt many different names. Sometimes what a filter is referred to can be dependent on the application it is used for or the material it is made out of. The following are a list of names; some you may have heard of and others you may not have. Getting to know this list can instantly help when trying to troubleshoot a dust collector with a co-worker or service provider.
