There are many different kinds of dust collectors, including cartridge dust collectors, baghouse dust collectors (e.g., pulse jet dust collectors), cyclone dust collectors and wet collection systems (wet scrubbers). Cartridge dust collectors have become the #1 choice for most industrial and manufacturing applications. Why? Compared to baghouse dust collectors, cyclone and wet collection systems, cartridge dust collectors are easier to use and maintain, use less energy, and take up less floorspace. Cartridge filters come in a wide range of filter media options for collection of different dust types and volumes, including ultrafine dust, heavy or abrasive dust, sticky or hygrophilic dust, and oily dust. A cartridge dust collector can also be equipped with a deflagration system for collection of combustible dust and HEPA or activated carbon after-filters for collection sub-micron particulate, gases and vapors. A filter cleaning system (pulsing system) will help to extend the life of cartridge filters. These industry workhorses are versatile, effective and efficient for most general manufacturing applications.
