Vertical cartridge filter for industrial dust collection

| By Gerald Ondrey

The Vertical Cartridge Filter (VCF; photo) is a pulse-jet filter designed to handle medium to high air volumes for industrial dust removal. It is typically used as a nuisance dust collector in applications with light dust loads and a high volume of air flow. An easy-to-use cartridge clamp system on the hinged front doors of the baghouse provides easy access to and rapid replacement of the filter media. This minimizes downtime during scheduled maintenance, decreasing overall cost of operation. The filter is equipped with a smart timer, which includes an on-board sensor that reads the pressure drop across the filtering elements for on-demand cleaning. This results in reduced compressed-air consumption and greater cartridge life, the company says. — Schenck Process LLC, Kansas City, Mo.
