Customers operating continuously at 500°F (260°C) have a new option for baghouse dust collection, a high-temperature, pleated filter that eliminates the need for cages
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 26, 2022 – The Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has introduced a pleated baghouse filter for customers that collect dust in extreme heat applications. A breakthrough in filtration technology, BHA® Wicked™ High Temp Pleated Filters will operate continuously at 500°F (260°C), eliminating the need for cages saving time and money in filter installation and removal costs.
Cement, lime, carbon black, and other intense heat applications now have a choice with BHA Wicked High Temp Filters, a pleated filter that can operate continuously at 500°F (260°C). Baghouse operators will get all the benefits of pleated filters with this innovative filter:
- Designed to eliminate bags and cages, significantly decreasing installation and removal costs
- Reduce air-to-cloth ratios dramatically
- Shorter filters reduce abrasion problems
- Provides a larger dropout area
- Increased filtration area
- Reduce operating differential pressure
- Promotes better airflow for increased throughput and production
- Requires less pulse cleaning for potential energy savings
- Provides superior filtration efficiency
“We are motivated by the impressive results we are achieving with Wicked High Temp Pleated Filters for our beta customers and in the lab,” said Yit-Hong Tee, lead engineer, Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division. “Customers are getting lower operating differential pressure - up to 50% over bags in finished filter testing and a 90% reduction in pulse-cleaning emissions compared to standard bags.”
For decades, baghouses in high-temperature applications have been forced to use bags and cages for dust collection. With BHA Wicked High Temp Pleated Filters, customers will get maximum benefits through increased production and reduced operational costs.
