Design and Sizing of Baghouse Dust Collectors

COURSE NO: D06-005
Design and Sizing of Baghouse Dust Collectors
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic guidelines on the main elements to consider when choosing the best baghouse dust collector for your application.


Baghouse filters are commonly used to capture dust and other airborne particulates from industrial processes such as cement, metal, chemical, pharmaceutical, printing, woodworking, food processing, and construction. Industry-specific state OSHA rules and the EPA regulations mandate that businesses adhere to strict indoor air quality requirements and limit dust, smoke, and fume emissions into the atmosphere. By far the most prevalent type of air pollution control equipment is the baghouse type dust collector that serves a critical role in helping companies meet these criteria and improve both interior and outdoor environments by capturing a large percentage of particles generated by industrial operations.


Many aspects must be considered while designing an industrial baghouse, including space constraints, cleaning methods, fabric construction, air-to-cloth ratio, and many construction features like inlet position, hopper design, and dust discharge mechanisms.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to electrical, mechanical, and environmental engineers, plant layout designers, health & safety personnel, operation, maintenance, and facilities personnel responsible for industrial operations and infrastructure.
