Parker's Filter Fabric Selection Tool

Fabric filtration is more complicated than you might realize. There numerous variables in how effective the filters perform for your collection system. One of the most crucial to consider is the fabric. The fabric plays a fundamental role in the ease of the dustcake formation and discharge, the ability to withstand chemicals, abrasion resistance, operating temperature, oxygen, abrasion, and more. We have an abundance of fabric options, patented-technology, and finishes that allow us to provide you with the best solution for your operation.

Check out our Filter Fabric Selection Tool to better understand which media or fabric will be most effective in your unique application, or contact us and we will walk you through the recommendations that will work best in your system, providing long filter life.

BHA Filter Bags and Cages

We deliver reliable and durable fabric filter bags and cages engineered to meet the needs of your unique systems. We can deliver almost any type of filter bag for your baghouse, regardless of OEM design and system conditions. Because of the variety of particulates collected and individual operational conditions of collection systems, the selection of replacement filters should be determined through careful analysis of your current operating parameters.

Filtration fabric should be selected for maximum filtration efficiency, dust cake release, and durability. Operating conditions may include changes to gas stream chemistry, moisture or hydrocarbons, or high-temperature spikes. All need to be considered to get maximum filter life and performance. The style and construction of bags are typically determined by the collector cleaning system and if support cages are needed.

We also have support cages available in a variety of sizes, wire configurations, and materials to ensure optimum performance in unison with the proper fabric.

BHA Preveil® ePTFE Membrane & Baghouse Filters

BHA® Preveil® membrane is a microporous ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) membrane that is bonded to the surface of conventional filter media, including felts and woven fabrics, to provide one of the highest efficiencies of any available filter bag media.

Preveil is made from PTFE resin, a substance with inherent non-stick properties that can be used to help your dust collector operate at maximum efficiency by providing:

• 99.99% efficiency
• Higher airflow
• Better cleaning
• Optimum emissions control

One of only a handful of organizations globally, Parker Hannifin offers testing capability: ASTM D6830-02 and VDI/DIN-3926. Filter media selection is one of the most critical factors to optimizing fabric filter performance, testing helps ensure quality. For added peace of mind, we offer performance guarantees on select BHA Preveil laminated filter bags for qualified applications.

A Variable Environmental Simulation Analysis was performed by an independent laboratory to determine the efficiencies of two membrane fabrics. Check the results to see where Preveil outperformed in emissions control, differential pressure, and efficiency.

Offering the Latest Technology

Parker offers its latest addition to the BHA® Brand Product Portfolio, ProTura® SB Nano - now available in cartridges and pleated filters. These advanced nanofiber filters feature a layer of synthetic fibers so extremely fine, they are measured in fractions of a micron (nanometers). This ultra-thin layer traps dust and fume particulate on the surface of the filter before it can embed deeper in the media – leading to better cleaning efficiency with fewer pulses and significantly less compressed air use.

  • Superior durability
  • Higher efficiency and greater energy savings than other standard media
  • Greater resistance to moisture in the air stream
  • Longer filter life and cleaner air with ProTura SB Nano compared to 80/20 media

BHA Powerwave® Acoustic & Impulse Cleaning Systems

Parker's BHA Powerwave+ acoustic cleaning system significantly improves the cleaning of air pollution control equipment, heat transfer surfaces, material handling and storage equipment and areas of production where particulate buildup occurs. As an alternative to sootblowers and sootblower cleaning, acoustic cleaners are air-operated devices that emit low frequency, high-energy sound waves. The sound waves create vibrations powerful enough to break apart and dislodge heavy concentrations of particulate on surfaces, but gentle enough to not harm the surface. After the material has been dislodged, gravity and/or gas flow removes it.

The BHA Powerwave+ impulse cleaning system enhances boiler operation and minimizes high maintenance expenses associated with other cleaning methods. This revolutionary technology provides significant advantages over traditional methods like sootblowing, rapping, manual shaking, blasting and high-pressure water washing. Because the BHA Powerwave+ effectively cleans using controlled and repeated impulses, cleaning can be performed online. Another advantage over traditional methods is the benefit from less tube wear and no unnecessarily wasted steam and water.

Acoustic Cleaning Advantages:

  • Powerful online cleaning technology
  • Removes thick and stubborn ash deposits better than traditional cleaning methods
  • Reduces the need for steam sootblowing
  • Enhances long-term operational ability
  • Cleaning process doesn't require personnel to enter area where buildup occurs
  • Fuel-efficient design has low operating cost with minimal maintenance
  • Can be integrated into plant control systems or operated in self-timed mode
  • Increases heat transfer and overall efficiency of processes
  • Operates online versus requiring an outage
  • Extends time intervals between downturns caused by off-line cleaning, allowing more time for production
  • Potentially less damage to boiler tubes
  • Easy to install and maintain, with a small footprint that preserves valuable space
  • Utilizes only small amounts of compressed air, fuel and 110 VAC
