Pleated dust collector bags were completely made of polyester materials. Polyester materials help the bags to efficiently hold different particles aside from dust such as wood debris, food pieces, and smaller parts of a toy. What differentiates the pleated bags from the regular dust collector bags is their ability to hold materials at 300% – 500% more efficient than the regular bags. Cleaning and maintaining the the pleated bags were also easier to do than those of the regular dust collector bags due to the fact that the particles inside the bag were being prevented from reaching the media surface of the collector.
Pleated bag filters are made to fit a variety of size dust collectors and are manufactured to ensure easy installation and replacements. Pleated bags can be fitted into a variety of size cell plates for the bottom and top load dust collectors. Pleated bags were also made to substitute fabric bag cages and filters utilized in many dust collectors.
Benefits of using Pleated Dust Collector Bags
One of the best benefits of pleated dust collector bags over the fabric bags and typical cages is the easier installation process. Aside from easier installation and replacement processes the pleated bags can provide you, they also reduce the overall maintenance costs you have to spend on. Pleated bags can also increase the overall efficiency of the dust collector for at least 99.97% with the increase of air flow per unit of filter. They also allow you to make fewer change-outs than those of the fabric dust collector bags. These bags have higher resistance towards inlet abrasion and can also increase the dust collector’s surface filtration for up to 5-fold. Cleaning of the bags was also made efficient because the pleated dust collector bags exterior is washable. Above all else, the pleated bags can minimize the use of air compression that could damage the bag’s interior.
