What is a bag filter?

Baghouse dust collectors use long, cylindrical bags (or tubes) made of fabric to filter dust particles out of the airstream. The dirty air enters the dust collector and is directed to the filters of the baghouse. Dirty air passes through the bags where the dust particulate is collected outside the filter while clean air passes through the filter. The clean air is released into the environment or recirculated back into the facility.
