The options are endless when it comes to filters and filter material. But here are a few of the most common types of filters and media used in industrial applications:
Fiberglass filters – Fiberglass filters are inexpensive and straightforward for most handling or collection systems. In high-use facilities, they may need to be replaced monthly or more.
Pleated paper filters – Pleated paper filters are also inexpensive, and they do a better job than fiberglass of filtering finer particulates. They must be replaced frequently as well.
Bag filters – Cotton or polyester bag filters are common in sawdust and wood particulate collection because these filters can be dumped out and re-used. While not the most effective at filtering fine dust, they’re great for bulk collection and as a first stage filter.
This is a difficult question to answer without knowing the specifics of your machinery, application, and facility size. However, as a general rule, most filters should be replaced every 1 to 3 years for optimum performance.
Replacing filters at the recommended frequency can save you time and money in the long run by keeping your machinery running smoothly and your team healthy.
