BHA pleated filter elements provide maximum benefits through increased production and reduced operational costs.
BHA PulsePleat filter elements provide maximum benefits through increased production and reduced operational costs. As an alternative to traditional filtration technology, Parker Hannifin produces an innovative and extensive family of pleated filter elements that offers proven performance and durability. With more than 4 million units sold to date, BHA PulsePleat filter elements along with BHA ThermoPleat® options deliver valuable benefits:
Best of all, installation typically requires no modification to existing equipment. You can enjoy improved performance and energy savings without the expense of costly modifications.
The Industrial Filter Test Lab allows our engineers to conduct precise media and filter testing in the development of innovative filtration technologies. The highlight of the lab is a test rig dedicated to testing in accordance with ANSI/ASHRAE 199-2016 which provides a quantitative method for determining the performance of pulse cleaned filters.
As a leading global provider of innovative filtration technologies and solutions, creating the Filter Test Lab and Customer Experience Facility is essential to finding the answers for our customer's biggest challenges.
BHA designs and manufactures pleated filters for most all applications, top load and bottom load PulsePleats, high-temperature ThermoPleats and dust cartridges to fit nearly any dust collector.

Parker Hannifin delivers reliable and durable fabric filter bags and cages engineered to meet the needs of our customers' unique systems. We can deliver most 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, 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.
Parker also manufactures support cages in a variety of sizes, wire configurations, and materials to ensure optimum performance in unison with the proper fabric.

BHA ProTura filters feature a special surface nanofiber layer made from synthetic polymers 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. Parker offers high quality BHA Cartridge Filters to keep its customers' dust collectors running efficiently and energy smart.

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.
BHA 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:
Parker Hannifin is one of only a handful of organizations globally that offer testing capability, ASTM D6830-02 and VDI/DIN-3926. Filter media selection is one of the most critical factors to optimizing fabric filter performance. For added peace of mind, Parker offers performance guarantees on select BHA Preveil laminated filter bags for qualified applications.
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:
Your fabric filter dust collector performance can only be as good as the weakest component in the system. Parker offers the BHA dust collector parts and accessories you need to maintain peak performance and consistent operation and efficiency.
