Scientific Dust Collector Image What Better Cleaning Means For You:

Better cleaning means less filter area is required. Scientific Dust Collectors' patented cleaning system more effectively cleans the filter bags and promotes a more even dust cake along the entire length of the filter bag. As a result, significantly less cloth are is required compared to generic dust collectors using venturi-based cleaning systems that compensate for poor cleaning by adding more cloth area.

  • More reliable dust collection from an improved cleaning system
  • Space Savings. Less filter area required means collector is more compact.
  • Higher filtering efficiencies due to more even dust cake build-up and better cleaning.
  • Fan energy savings from lower pressure drop. Flow-restricting venturis are eliminated.
  • Extended bag life results from reduced abrasion and less shock during pulse cleaning.
  • Fewer bags, cages, valves, etc. to maintain.

Better Cleaning Means Less Filter Area is Required

Scientific Dust Collector's patented cleaning system more effectively cleans the filter bags and promotes a more even dust cake along the entire length of the filter bag. As a result, significantly less cloth are is required compared to generic dust collectors using venturi-based cleaning systems that compensate for poor cleaning by adding more cloth area.

  • Scientific Dust Collectors' high velocity nozzle increases the speed and energy of the air jet pulse inducing a greater volume of cleaning air.
  • Greater cleaning energy with less shock allows Scientific Dust Collectors to more effectively clean the filters. Less filter area is required because we clean it better.
  • A more even dust cake build up along the entire length of the bag increases the filtering efficiency and reduces the filtered air pressure drop. This is true even with only half the cloth area required in venturi-based systems.

  • Venturi-based systems start with a low velocity air jet located close to the bag opening. This limits the induction of cleaning air.
  • Flow-restricting venturis create a high filtered air velocity that must be overcome by the cleaning air jet, robbing it of energy to clean.
  • A high negative pressure is created at the exit of the venturi causing fine dust particles to embed into the filter cloth. The strong shock produced by the cleaning air increases bag wear resulting in "puffing" as dust is sucked through the cloth.
