Pleated Filter Bags vs. Bag Filters
THE ADVANTAGES OF PLEATED BAGS
Increased durability, better efficiency, energy savings and easier installation

BAG FILTER PLEATED BAGS
Max. 33 feet long Max. 80 inches long

 

Benefits of Pleated Bags

  • Polyester media and polyurethane end caps in the bottom prevent abrasion/leaks
  • Can be retrofitted into existing baghouse using existing tubesheets
  • Short pleated filter bags minimize need for investing in large bag collectors and require less air for pulse cleaning
