How Often Should Cartridge Filters Be Replaced?

The frequency of cartridge filter replacement in a dust collection system can vary widely based on several factors, such as the type of particulates being filtered, the volume of dust, the quality of the filter, and the specific application and environment. As a rule of thumb, industrial cartridge air filters should be changed at least annually, though in some environments they may need to be replaced more often. Generally, a cartridge filter should be replaced when it shows signs of wear, damage, or reduced performance, which might be indicated by an increase in pressure drop across the filter, visible dust emission, or decreased airflow through the system. Regular inspection and adherence to a manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule are crucial in determining the optimal replacement interval.  Read more: How Often Should You Change Dust Collector Filters?
