Pleated Filters and Bags



Throughout the years, OEM dust collectors were typically supplied with filter bags which are one dimensional and manufactured from felted or woven filter medias.  As plants increased their production they typically would either continue operations as they were or purchase a new collector to handle the additional dust loading which is very costly and requires new permitting etc.  

Now with new technology, BVA LLC can help you increase your dust collection requirement with a simple change from filter bags to pleated filters. 

Our pleated filters are engineered to deliver solutions for most common baghouse problems:

Problem Solution
Not Enough Cloth Area

 Pleated bag filters provide 2-3 times the filtration area in existing equipment due to the innovative pleat pack design.

High-Pressure Drop

 Increasing filter area causes the air to media ratio to decrease when the airflow stays the same.  The pressure drop also decreases.

Bottom Filter Abrasion   Pleated bag filters are shorter than the fabric bags they’re replacing. This allows for a larger drop out area and less opportunity for bag abrasion.
Short Filter Life  Pleated bag filters offer up to 2-3 times the filter life over 16 oz. polyester felt bags.
Stack Emissions  Surface filtration media allowing for the capture of submicron particulate reducing stack emissions

This simple change will improve production, reduce pressure drop, increase collection efficiencies and reduce filter changeouts and maintenance time.
