Baghouse Operating Conditions Analysis
Home » Industry » Baghouse Operating Conditions Analysis

Service Objective

Dust collection solutions have to be implemented to control dust emissions from manufacturing processes across all major industries. However, to maintain a dust collection system at its peak performance and meet or exceed emission standards and regulations, we have to fully understand the operating conditions under which the dust collection system has to work. Baghouse Operating Conditions Analysis can be used to identify a number of potential baghouse problems, including:
  • Incorrect filter media selection
  • Improper filter bag cleaning
  • Excessive airflow rate
  • High gas temperature
  • Sticky, corrosive, or abrasive dust
  • Filter bag or baghouse leakage

Baghouse Operating Conditions Analysis is an important tool for ensuring that baghouses are operating efficiently and effectively. By identifying and correcting potential problems, it helps to reduce emissions and improve air quality. In addition, here are some other benefits:
  • Extending filter bag lifespan
  • Reducing energy consumption
  • Improving overall filtration efficiency
  • Preventing costly breakdowns
  • Ensuring environmental compliance

Service Description

Each dust collection application is unique, and applications with similar characteristics or volume requirements may require dust collection solutions that are vastly different due to the number of operating variables that have to be considered. Proper and thorough evaluation of these variables is critical to ensuring your dust collection system performs efficiently, safely, and reliably.

Aokai’s Baghouse Operating Conditions Analysis service helps customers identify the most optimized dust collection solution by evaluating these critical operating variables. We want to ensure customers that your dust collection solutions will perform safely, efficiently, and reliably for many years to come.
Dust Properties
Dust properties have to be evaluated carefully before we can narrow down the selection of dust collection systems and filter media that may be the best fit for your dust collection applications. These properties include:
  • Particle Size
  • Particle Density
  • Particle Size Distribution
  • Chemistry & Physical Characteristics (corrosion & abrasion)
  • Temperature
  • Moisture
  • Combustibility
Dust Air Volume
Dust collector volume is measured in cubic feet per minute or CFM (also known as air flow rate). In dust collector applications CFM measures the amount of air per minute that can be processed. Calculating your air flow correctly is critical to the long-term health of your dust collection system.

If the system volume is too low, your system will not capture the dust effectively which can impact production and air quality. If the volume is too high, the energy consumption costs will be higher and you may disrupt the process of your application.
Air-to-Cloth Ratio
The air-to-cloth ratio is a critical measure to ensure your dust collection system is performing efficiently. Air-to-cloth ratio, also known as air-to-media ratio, is defined as the amount of air passing through one square foot of filter media. Generally, the lower the air-to-cloth ratio, the more effectively your dust collection system is performing. Operating at a higher air-to-cloth ratio usually causes a number of negative effects, such as reduced filter bag life, increased production and maintenance downtime, higher energy costs, and decreased filtration efficiency.
Cleaning System Parameters
Data on cleaning air pressure, pulse duration, and frequency of cleaning cycles is crucial for optimizing the cleaning process and extending filter life.
