Industrial Dust Collector Filters: Cleaning Vs. Replacing

Industrial dust collector filters are crucial in a wide variety of industries, and DeltaMAXX has been shown repeatedly to be the top of the line brand of filter that our clients can trust. Our filters have over a ninety-nine percent efficiency rate for collection of 0.3 to 0.4 micron particles, and with the nanofibers at half the size of those of our competitors, they are the industry’s most efficient cartridge dust collector filters. With a significantly longer life expectancy and reduced outlet emissions, our filters will not only prove to be a wise investment from a financial standpoint, but they will also give you and everyone in your workplace a reason to be confident in the efficiency and safety provided by your dust collection system.If you’re looking for information on cleaning or replacing your industrial dust collector filters, Imperial Systems can help you make an educated decision about the equipment you need.

At Imperial Systems we understand that monitoring the performance of your dust collector is not usually at the top of your priority list, as you have many other responsibilities to fulfill and customers to satisfy. For that reason, we have made it one of our priorities to make it simple for our clients to stay on top of maintaining their dust collectors in prime working condition. One way we do this is by making it easy for you to install your replacement filters quickly and hassle free. We check up on our customers on a regular basis, so when the time comes to switch out your industrial dust collector filters, we can have them delivered to you before you need them.

Can We Clean Our Industrial Dust Collector Filters Instead of Replacing Them?

Some of our clients have asked us about cleaning their filters to cut back on the frequency of replacing them. All industrial dust collection filters must be replaced at some point, but naturally, everyone wants to extend the lifespan of their filters in order to save money. Unfortunately, we have no reason to believe that you can actually cut down on your expenses by cleaning your dust collector filters, as opposed to ordering replacements. In addition, and more importantly, if you remove the filter and attempt to have it cleaned in-house or by a third party, you may jeopardize the integrity of the nanofibers on your filters, which can lead to more problems and additional costs in the long run.

Here are just a few reasons why we encourage our customers to stick with replacing their filters on a regular basis instead of having their used filters cleaned:

  • With our cleaning processes built into your dust collection system, you can extend the life of your industrial dust collector filters.
  • The nano-sized interfiber pores in our filters allows caked dust to fall off easily with a reverse pulse cleaning system.
  • If you remove and clean your filters, our emission statement is null and void, and it cannot be used for DEP/OSHA permits.

Contact us if you have any questions about our DeltaMAXX filters or dust collection systems in general. We look forward to helping you maximize the efficiency and safety of your dust collection system without any hassle.
