Mikro-Pleat™ Pleated Cartridge Filters
Mikro-Pleat pleated cartridge filters combine the advantages of both traditional pulse-jet filter bags and cartridge filters. Mikro-Pleat pleated filters can improve the performance of your existing baghouse by increasing the effective cloth area.
Space and Cost Efficient
By installing this media in your existing stucture, you can significantly increase baghouse performance without increasing the size of the baghouse. In many instances, a Mikro-Pleat pleated filter can provide more thann 2X times the cloth area of a conventional filter bag (see comparison chart). The unique design of our Mikro-Pleat pleated filters assures increased capacity and better operating efficiencies.
What makes Mikro-Pleat pleated filters so versatile is their special filter media and pleat construction. Unlike the felt fabric used in a pulse jet bag or paper media used in a traditional cartridge, Mikro-Pleat pleated filters are constructed of a special spunbond nonwoven filter media. This media is very strong and its density promotes surface filtration of dust and easy release of the collected particulate. Because of its strength and durability, this media can be formed into wide pleats which operate at higher air to cloth ratios without plugging. Pressure drops are drastically lowered and users are experiencing extended filter life and reduced compressed air consumption.
Reduce Maintenance Time
With Mikro-Pleat pleated filters, the need for separate support cages is eliminated. This one-piece pleated filter dramatically reduces change-out costs and are easy to install and remove. Mikro-Pleat pleated filters have a wide variety of tubesheet attachment styles permitting both top and bottom load installations.
Mikro-Pleat pleated filters are more resistant to temperature, moisture and abrasion that other filter cartridges. In fact, they are even washable in some cases, allowing complete cleaning of the filters to avoid collected product contamination.
Typical applications where Mikro-Pleat pleated filters have been used include:
- Paint and Pigments
