Pulse jet fabric filters can collect over 99% of the particulate in the gas. They can operate at various temperatures depending on the material of the bags selected. They are often used as the final cleanup of dry particulate systems.
Van Tongeren has a design for a modern pulse jet fabric filter with a high entry inlet for the particle laden gas. The gas flows into the inlet and then flows toward the bottom of the bag collector, where it turns and moves up between the bag filters and the bags filtering the particulate from the gas. The first turn at the bottom of the bag filter drops some of the particle loading directly into the hopper thereby reducing the load on the bags. Intermittent pulses from blowpipe located in the outlet plenum clean the bags when the pressure drop exceeds a preset value dropping the particles that have collected on the outside of the bag into the hopper of the collector. For large gas flows, the modular fabric filters can be coupled together. For ease of maintenance, Van Tongeren supplies a walk-in outlet plenum which allows for maintenance in bad weather for outdoor collectors. We can also supply a hatch style plenum if overhead height is a consideration.
