Pleated Filter Bags

Pleated Filtration Media generally has a few advantages over traditional filter media. The pleats greatly increase filter surface area allowing for lower air to cloth ratios in the same space. Layers of deep pockets made of woven fabric allow for higher dust retention rates. Additionally, with shorter overall bag lengths Pleated Filter Bags remain above the inlet gas stream, reducing abrasion caused by incoming dust particles. Pleated bags are designed to replace fabric bag filters and cages used in many dust collectors.

Often Pleated Filters can be made to fit most existing baghouses without the need for extensive redesigns. Pleated bags are easily mounted into various size cell plates for both top and bottom load dust collectors. Some of the advantages to switching to pleated media:

  • Lower Maintenance Costs
  • Efficiencies up to 99.97%
  • Higher Air Flow Per Filter Unit
  • Less Frequent Change-Outs
  • Better Resistance to Inlet Abrasion
  • Up to a 5-Fold Increase in Surface Filtration
  • Washable Exterior
  • Minimizes Compressed Air Usage
