What Is the Difference Between a Cartridge Air Filter and a Baghouse Filter?

Cartridge air filters and baghouse filters are both used in dust collection and air filtration systems, but they have distinct designs, characteristics, and best-use scenarios. Cartridge air filters are typically cylindrical in shape and constructed with pleated filter media, increasing the surface area for filtration within a compact design. The pleats allow for a large amount of filter material to be packed into a relatively small space. A baghouse filter, on the other hand, is shaped like a long bag or sock, typically made of woven or felted fabric. The dust-laden air enters from the top and passes through the bag's walls, leaving dust on the outside or inside of the bag, depending on the design. Each filter type is used for a specific type of dust collector.
