Pulse Cleaning Panels / Pleated Bag Cartridges (PBC)

Advanced Filtration Technology

Freudenberg Filtration Technologies manufacture Pleated Bag Cartridges (PBC) for general mining and air pollution control applications.

Environmental concerns are causing regulatory authorities to continually review and tighten their emission control requirements.

The cloth area in a collector can be increased by up to 3 times simply by changing over to Pleated Bag Cartridges.

PBC cartridges are designed to retrofit most commonly available baghouses and cell plate openings, replacing both the filter sock and the cage with a single pleated cartridge. This effectively reduces the air to cloth ratio allowing an inexpensive upgrade of an existing collector to cope with extra production and more efficient media to reduce emissions.

PBC cartridges are described by the cell plate opening by the length [eg. 135mm CPO x 1 metre]. The standard pleat depth is 15mm but other options are available.

The number of pleats normally in a PBC is 52 but other pleat numbers can be specified.

Custom design elements are also available

The top is moulded around the media in a single piece of Urethane. This top is for applications up to 80°C, other options are available in higher temperatures and in food grade for a variety of applications. Please inquire about your application.
