Filter bags play a major role in the smooth operation of dust collectors. However, for the best results, there are several factors to consider. The bags must be manufactured using the most appropriate media for the application, expertly installed and changed when necessary. As a leading manufacturer of dust collection equipment, including top quality filter bags, N.R. Murphy can help.
A trusted expert
N.R. Murphy has more than 60 years of experience manufacturing dust collection equipment. Its lineup includes filter bags manufactured by its filter division for N.R. Murphy equipment, as well as other manufacturers’ equipment. The company has the expertise to determine the most appropriate filter media for the application from its large stock of quality filter media, install the filter bags correctly to avoid dust leaking past the filters and into the facility, and determine how frequently the filter bags should be changed.
“There are many variables that will affect the frequency of your filter change outs, such as the number of shifts you are running, whether the dust collector is in daily operation and, most importantly, the type of properties of the material being collected and the general plant condition,” the company explains.
When it’s time to remove existing filter bags, N.R. Murphy service technicians have been trained to safely handle this task. They will go to the customer facility, remove the old filter bags and install a new set of filters quickly, efficiently and, most importantly, safely. This service call also includes general service on the dust collector.
N.R. Murphy has several basic styles of filter bags to choose from. The appropriate style depends on the type of collector and the manufacturer. To learn more about filter bags and for help determining the style that best suits your application, contact N.R. Murphy.
