Do you know what a baghouse is?

At PTL we are skilled at industrial ventilation.

This includes ducts and baghouse installations. So, what exactly is a baghouse? The simple way people sometimes explain them is by referring to a baghouse as a “giant vacuum”. Although this summary is correct in principle, a baghouse is so much more. With a baghouse, a system can be engineered for almost any dust producing application, covering almost any set of circumstances. This places them into a totally different class than a giant vacuum.

A baghouse is an air pollution control device that removes particulates out of air or gas released from commercial processes or combustion for electricity generation. Power plants, steel mills, pharmaceutical producers, food manufacturers, chemical producers and other industrial companies often use baghouses to control emission of air pollutants. Baghouses came into widespread use in the late 1970s after the invention of high-temperature fabrics capable of withstanding temperatures over 350 °F.

Baghouses can…

  • be built any size to suit a location or process.
  • work in a dry, dusty atmosphere.
  • withstand abuse and maintain designated operation.
  • come with filter medias to suit every process.
