A Detailed View of The Baghouse Dust Collectors

The Baghouse dust collectors are the industrial dust collectors that utilize 6 or 900 felt bags to filter and purify dusty air which is emitted by many other manufacturing industries and processing factories. The mechanism of how dust collectors work is straightforward to understand. A huge fan pulls up the dirty and dusty air in the collector, the dust gets deposited on the exterior part of the felt bags, and clean and purified air leaves the collector. You can find various kinds of Baghouse dust collectors in the market.

Why Do You Even Need A Baghouse Dust Collector?

  • It can help find valuable stuff from the dust-filled air.
  • This protects the outer environment as well as the employees from the dangerous effects of pollution.
  • This also helps to keep up with the air and health emission standards.

About And Type Baghouse Collectors 

 Baghouse Dust Collectors

There are mostly three types of baghouse designs in use today. These are:

  1. Mechanical Shaker
  2. Reverse Air
  3. Reverse Jet
  • Mechanical Shaker – It is designed as the filter bags are deferred from Top of the Baghouse with the help of horizontal rods, and these are tied with a cell plate at the bottom. As the dusty air enters from the bottom of the collector, it is pushed upwards by the tubular filter bags, and it then passes to the airflow duct at the top of the baghouse. The two horizontal bars are vibrated in order to clean these baghouses. This vibration is caused by a motor which is run by a cam system and the shaft. The engine sends out shocks to the filter bags, which results in the ducts to fall. This baghouse requires a lot of space.
  • Reverse Air – In this type of Baghouse, the filter is joined with a cell plate at the very bottom of the baghouse. It is then suspended from a modifiable hanger frame situated on the top. The dirty air enters the baghouse and then passes from the filter bags, starting from the bottom of the baghouse. The dust is collected on the inner wall of the filter bags, and then the purified air leaves the collector from the top outlet. The cleaning mechanism differs in this collector from any other baghouse dust collector. The clean air is injected in the reverse direction of the normal flow of the air; this is how the cleaning process works. The cleaning process produces pressure which then helps to clean the dust in the filter bags. The pressure causes vibration, and the dust that is accumulated falls off and is collected in the hopper.
  • Reverse Jet Air – In this kind of Baghouse collectors the filter cage are laid over a metal cage and it is then joined with the cell plate situated at the cell plate. The dirty air enters from the bottom, and it is then forced from outside to the inside of the filter bags after the air exits the collector from the outer duct at the top. The digital sequential timer attached to one filter bag, makes the solenoid valve to ignite. This valve starts cleaning. It detects an amount of dust collected by the filters. This has some burst of air compressed which makes the dust in the filter bags to fall off. The dust then comes to the hopper at the bottom.


Everyone is aware of the pollution that is taking place due to industrial waste. Industrial waste affects both air and water. There are various reasons to install a dust collector in a manufacturing or processing facility.
