Our filtration process and filter bag testing and evaluation services include:

  • Permeability tests: Permeability tests can be performed on clean filter bags or with process dust on the surface. For pulse-jet bags, we use a special apparatus that can simulate pulsing conditions in the baghouse. By comparing permeability before and after cleaning with reference standards, specific process problems can be identified.
  • Weight analysis: Weight analysis performed before and after cleaning can be a valuable indicator of the level of dust loading and penetration as compared to reference standards.
  • Mullen test: A Mullen test measures the burst strength of filter fabric, gauges the extent of fabric degradation, and in conjunction with reference standards gives a measure of the remaining service life.
