Parker's filtration experts work with you to find the right solutions to deliver a positive impact on the performance and reliability of your dust collection equipment.See Our Industrial Filter Test Lab
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 PulsePleats Prove to be a Versatile and Cost-Effective Solution
As an alternative to traditional filtration technology, Parker Hannifin produces the original pleated technology. An innovative and extensive family of pleated filter elements that offer longer filter life, proven performance, and durability.
- Provide superior filtration efficiency
- Promote better airflow for increased throughput
- Reduce air-to-cloth ratios
- Reduce operating differential pressure
- Reduce compressed air consumption
- Eliminate the need for cages
- Are easily installed and removed
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
