Dust collectors are employed in all areas of industry. The spectrum of application extends from simple uses – such as the filtration of lime dust – to the removal of explosive dust such as wheat meal. Dust collectors can likewise remove toxic dust, as well as dust that must be returned to the industrial production process.
The selection of such factors as the type of dust collector, the filter medium, the connected equipment, and the superficial filtering velocity (also known as the air/cloth ratio) requires long years of engineering experience. From case to case, the factors and the decisions will vary.
