Key Considerations for Filter Selection
Selecting the right filter products for your dust collection system is essential. Several key considerations need to be taken into account when selecting the appropriate replacement filter:
- Type of chemical or bulk material being process
- Type of application
- Operating temperature
- Level of abrasion resistance required
- Air-to-cloth ratio
- Cleaning method

What is a cartridge dust collector?
A cartridge dust collector or a bin vent filter is designed to vent displaced air from storage silos or bins during filling by a pneumatic or mechanical convey system. While venting displaced air, it prevents dust particles and other harmful products from being emitted into the atmosphere or surrounding environment.
This dust collector uses a pleated cartridge filter instead of bags. Because the filters are pleated, they have a larger total filtering surface area per cubic feet per minute (CFM), which reduces the air-to-cloth ratio and the overall size of the collector. The open pleat structure offers more filter media than standard filter bags reducing the number of filters your system requires saving you time and money.
Cartridge dust collectors are cleaned by a set of reverse pulse jets that activate sequentially to clean material off the filters using compressed air and blow the dust particulates back into the storage silo or bin.
What are cartridge filters made of?
STT offers the following two types of cartridge filters made of the following substrates:
- The PTFE laminated spunbonded 100% polyester cartridge filter consists of a membrane of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) laminated over a spunbonded polyester substrate that results in a microporous surface.
- The spunbonded 100% polyester cartridge filter is made of a spunbonded polyester substrate which is a high strength media composition making it durable and long lasting.
How often do filters need to be replaced?
Filter cartridges need to be changed before they become plugged. Many operating plants schedule a change out of their dust collector filters on an annual basis. Some sites, with difficult to handle materials, schedule these changes twice per year.
How often you need to change your filter cartridges will depend on the number of product deliveries that your plant receives. A site that receives six deliveries per day will have to change out their dust collector filters more often than a site that receives one delivery every two weeks.
These filters should also be changed out when the normal built in cleaning cycle, whether reverse pulse jet or shaker, does not adequately clean these filters.
