Baghouse Ventilation Process
Ever wonder how your pulse-jet, baghouse dust collection system works? Here’s a quick overview:
- Dirty air enters the baghouse system through an inlet duct.
- Dirty air hits the inlet baffle or impact plates, causing heavy particulates to drop into the hopper or drop-out box below.
- This also causes the air to slow velocity for more efficient filtration.
- Air flows through the collector’s filtration bags, collecting fine dust or particulates on the outside of the bags as the clean air passes through the bags.
- The clean air is then moved to the stack and out into the environment, or recycled back into the facility to minimize heating costs.
- The collected particulates on the bags are dislodged by reverse-blown air and conveyed out to a disposal system.
Here are a few reasons to consider IVI when looking into your baghouse needs.
- Heavy duty construction: IVI uses a ¼” thick tube sheet and 7ga hopper as a baseline.
- Customization: Space constraints often limit where a “cookie cutter” baghouse can be located. IVI’s design team can manufacture baghouses for the indoors, outdoors, at grade, elevated, on a green field site or in a 150-year-old building. IVI will also ensure there is proper maintenance access and waste containers are accessible.
- Service: After the installation, IVI can provide lifelong service and maintenance.
- Experience: IVI has fabricated hundreds of baghouses and installed them in dozens of applications.
- Total system design: While you can purchase a baghouse from IVI, that is just the start of IVI’s capabilities. IVI is a one-stop-shop for your dust collection, and can ensure a baghouse design is maximized with the rest of the system. Whereas, a piece-meal system often adds maintenance costs and offers less efficiencies.
