You have a significant amount of industrial filter bags in your dust collector system without any knowledge of their condition, performance level or life expectancy.

Send us your used filter bags, and we will tell you why your fabric filter bags are failing or are about to fail. We conduct a complete dust and fabric analysis of your used filter bags to determine your filter bags’ remaining service life. We will recommend alternative fabrics to improve your filtration performance and extend the life of your bags, saving you money on your baghouse operations.

Albarrie’s lab testing program can develop a catalogue of filter bag history, including filtration upsets, along with past and present performance data. This will allow you to have a comprehensive knowledge of the current condition of your filter bags and identifies areas that require immediate attention.

Benefits of this program include:

  • Determining life expectancy and degree of fabric deterioration of your filter bags.
  • Suggesting causes of fabric failure; whether thermal, chemical, or mechanical.
  • Providing particle size analysis of dust and chemistry in your dust collector.
  • Determining operating condition and environment in your dust collector.
  • Identifying problem compartments/areas in your baghouse.
  • Avoiding imminent catastrophic failure.
  • Minimizing maintenance.
  • Minimizing downtime.
  • Ensuring the best filter fabric and treatments are being employed for your specific application.
  • Recommending fabric options, trials or system design improvements that could extend life and improve performance.

Our goal is to present reliable technical data that assures continuous emission compliance, avoids premature bag failure, extends bag life, reduces liability concerns and provides the predictability necessary for proper asset management.
