How Can I Extend the Life of Dust Collector Cartridge Filters?

Proper filter selection and maintenance will extend the life of cartridge dust collector filters. That starts with purchasing high-quality cartridge air filters with the right media type and filtration efficiency rating for the application. The dust collector should also have a filter pulsing mechanism to pulse excess dust off the filters. Ensuring that the dust collector system operates within the manufacturer’s specified parameters, such as maintaining appropriate air-to-cloth ratios and observing correct differential pressures, helps to prevent undue stress on the filters. For heavy or abrasive dust, protecting the filters using baffles, dropout boxes, or pre-filtration can also reduce wear and tear on filter media.
