Inspection doors are important for maintenance on long runs of horizonal ductwork, but there is one off-the-shelf, readily available, door design that can cause issues with your ventilation system’s airflow, reducing your capacity to meet production rates, and allows for material to build up, which in the worst and most expensive cases seen by Luis, causes ductwork to collapse, sometimes bringing down a section of a building.

Watch IAC’s Tip of the Month Video: Correct Placement of HEPA Filters in a Baghouse Ventilation System
Where is the HEPA filter in your Baghouse industrial ventilation system located? Before or after the fan? In our newest Tip of the Month Video, IAC Process Engineer Luis Castano explains how, as filtered air leaves the baghouse, proper HEPA filter placement is critical to optimal performance of downstream processing systems and prevention of possible contaminated air leaks.
IAC Applications Engineering Manager Luis Castano is back with another Tip of the Month for baghouse design. In this month’s tip, Luis explains the meaning of air-to-cloth ratio in optimized baghouse design, and its relation to both air velocity going through the filters, and interstitial air velocity going between the bags. All three parameters are important to consider in order to have your baghouse operating at peak efficiency.
Over time we see that the systems within an industrial plant go through changes. These changes typically result in the system no longer meeting the expectations it once did. One of the more common systems that end up changing over time is a baghouse or dust collector. These systems act as the ventilation system in a plant and are a vital part of the overall process.
In long bag baghouses, the length of the bags can exceed 30 feet. With more length come more potential headaches when completing a bag change out.
Insulation is an important aspect of many systems, but it is vitally important for high temperature systems. If your process involves dryers, kilns or mills, proper insulation is something to monitor so that your operation can run smoothly.
