Three times the filter area with the same construction volume
Compared to filter versions with round tubes, cartridge filters offer three times the filter area with the same construction volume, enabling a reduction in investment and operating costs. Cartridge filters are typically used as intake filters for central compressed-air systems and in bagging and packaging plants used, for example, in the plaster and dry mortar manufacturing industry.
Pipe cartridge filters are the preferred choice when dedusting low volumetric flows (200 to 500 m3/h) with fine, free-flowing and extremely dry dusts in additive silos, bagging stations and manual dosers. The pressure shock-proof versions (10 bar) are the perfect solution for pre-hopper dedusting in pneumatic conveyor systems.
Safety filters with a cartridge filter design are used for protecting components connected downstream of a main filter (such as compressors). As a result, these units are also protected in the event that larger quantities of dust enter the clean gas stream in the main filter because of damage to the tube, for example.
