Once you’ve reviewed your quote we can ship the bags to you, but our service doesn’t stop there. Do you need help replacing or installing bags in your dust collector? Look no further, IAC has dedicated baghouse services teams set up nationwide to assist with any baghouse maintenance need.

Pleated Filters

Pleated filters provide a simple retrofit for upgrading existing dust collection systems and improving problem systems. Make the switch today.

Filter Area
The IAC pleated filter is a one-piece element of spun bond polyester media. Because spun bond material is pleatable, we can get 200 – 300% more filter media into a pleated filter that is the same size, or usually smaller than the conventional filter bag it replaces. This dramatically reduces your air-to-cloth ratio, providing for a much more efficient operation of the collector. You will also see increased airflow, lower differential pressure, lower energy cost and higher filtration efficiencies.

Efficiencies

The non-woven, spun bond filter media in the pleated filter has a smooth calendered finish that maximizes dust cake release. Pleated filters resist surface penetration by the collected particulate, resulting in much higher cleaning efficiency and faster regeneration of operating airflows. The felt fabrics used in conventional filter bags have millions of rough surface fibers that can attach to the dustcake causing poor cake release. Actually, the felt fabric requires a considerable depth of dustcake to reach an acceptable level of efficiency. The smooth finish of the spun bond media allows for easy release of particulate. This material, offering 99.99+% efficiency, rivals membrane materials at a much lower cost.

IAC Pleated Filters – More Filter Area

If you are using bags and cages, you will be impressed by how much more media a pleated baghouse filters have. Typically, a pleated filter is built with 35 to 45 pleats. The with a conservative figure of 35 pleats, the pleated filter still gets up to 300% more media in the same space as a bag and cage.

Successful Applications for Pleated Filters
• Current dust collector systems using polyester material.
• Current collectors that are undersized, requiring additional cloth area.
• Current collector systems using materials other than polyester operating at 250° F or below.
• Current dust collector systems requiring more efficient media.
• Hydrolysis or moisture problems with current standard felts.

Additional Benefits
• Eliminate cage costs.
• Reduce change-out costs and process downtime through 50% faster installation.
• Cut pressure drops, dramatically reduce compressed air consumption.
• Avoid collected product contamination, and increase filter life through soap and water cleanup.

Pulse-Jet Filters

Pulse-jet and plenum pulse baghouses collect dust on the outside of the filter. Dust-laden gas floods the baghouse, and clean air exits through the inside of the bag while the dust particles collect on the outside filter surface.

A support cage prevents bag collapse during filtration and aids in the re-distribution and cleaning of the dustcake. A wide variety of filter bags can be manufactured to meet specific application needs.

Cages-for-Filters

Reverse Air Filter Bags

Particulate is collected on the inside surface of the bag in baghouses using reverse air cleaning systems. The dust-laden gas enters through the dirty side (inlet) of the collector and flows up through the bag. The particulate is filtered by the dustcake and the fabric, and clean air exits through the outside of the bag. The steel bottom of the bag protects the filter bag from collapsing. Reverse air bag top and bottom designs vary by cleaning system and original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

Various types of these bags can be provided. We offer several different top and bottom designs for our reverse air filter bags, to ensure that our bags can meet your requirements.

Clamps, bottoms and additional accessories can be provided to complete your reverse air bag order.

Shaker Filters

Particulate is collected on the inside surface of the bag in baghouses using shaker cleaning systems. The dust-laden gas enters through the dirty side (inlet) of the collector and flows up through the bag. The particulate is filtered by the dustcake and the fabric, and clean air exits through the outside of the bag. Shaker baghouse filters top and bottom designs vary by cleaning system and original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

IAC supplies wide selection of filter bags for shaker style dust collectors. Our top level engineers can suggest the media that will keep your shaker unit running at peak efficiency.

Here at IAC, you’ll find everything you need to complete your shaker bag order. We carry a wide variety of top and bottom attachments to fit your shaker structure. If the parts we carry in stock simply don’t work for your application, then we can custom design top attachments for you. We also offer additional accessories for your filter bags including bag clamps, abrasion protection parts, and more.
