What are the differences between bag filters and pulse filters?
Pulse dust collectors and bag dust collectors are two common industrial dust collection equipment that can effectively filter dust and smoke, ensuring environmental cleanliness and worker health.
However, their working principles and structures are different.
Firstly, the working principle of a pulse dust collector is to use gas pulse cleaning technology. When the flue gas passes through the equipment, it undergoes pre-treatment and enters a filter composed of nozzles and filter bags. During the filtration process, dust is separated from the flue gas and remains in the collector above the filter bag. When sufficient dust accumulates on the filter bag, the controller sends a signal to cause the nozzles to perform gas pulse cleaning on the filter bag one by one at the specified time interval. The cleaned dust falls into the collector and is ultimately discharged through the valve.
Bag dust collectors use bag filtration technology. When smoke passes through the equipment, it undergoes pre-treatment and enters a device composed of exhaust pipes, suction induced draft fans, bellows, and filter bags. During the filtration process, dust is separated from the flue gas and remains on the filter bag. When enough dust accumulates on the filter bag, the controller sends a signal to stop the suction induced draft fan, then opens the valve, shakes the filter bag to shake the dust down, falls into the bottom collection hopper, and is discharged.
From the perspective of working principle, the difference between pulse dust collectors and bag dust collectors lies in the cleaning method. The former uses gas pulse cleaning technology, while the latter uses mechanical vibration to shake the ash. At the same time, they also use different filter bag materials. The filter bags used in pulse dust collectors are usually made of chemical fiber or glass fiber materials, while the filter bags used in bag type dust collectors are generally made of needle felt materials, which are resistant to high temperature, corrosion, and have a longer service life.
In addition, there are also differences in the structure of the two devices. Due to the fact that the pulse dust collector only requires one collector and a set of filter bags, its volume and weight are relatively small, making it easy to install and debug; However, bag type dust collectors may require more time and effort during installation and debugging due to the need to occupy a larger device volume to accommodate multiple filter bags and ash dischargers.
In summary, although pulse dust collectors and bag dust collectors have their own advantages and disadvantages, they are both the main equipment in industrial dust collection. Customers should choose the equipment that suits them based on their actual situation.
