Dust Collector Systems & Why You Need Them

As the world’s population steadily increases, the kind of machines and products that pollute the environment also increase to accommodate the population increase around the world.

Air doesn’t have weight, not a lot at least, but when it comes to the amount we breathe in every day, it is significant. And if we try to control and maximize the quality of our intake on other things like food, water and such, we should also consider the air we’re breathing in, and its quality.

Saudi Arabia’s air, according to research, is considered unsafe. With the fine particulate matter in the air of Saudi Arabia exceeding eight times the amount that is considered safe. Vehicular emissions, industrial emissions, and dust storms affect the air quality of Saudi Arabia, with the air quality of cities like Riyadh, Dammam, and Jeddah judged to be the worst.

Safe air quality ensures a healthier life. And so, when it comes to it, one needs to think about the best way that they can protect their lungs by improving air intake.

One of the ways to do improve the air quality around you is to install dust collecting filtration systems.

Industrial dust collecting filtration systems control air pollution. They are setup in factories, plants, warehouses, and other industrial places. The job of a dust collection system is to remove hazardous or harmful particulate matter from the environment. Dust collection systems are specifically designed to remove purify and filter out such contaminants. And improve air quality.

Pollutants can differ by what is being produced/stored wherever they are installed. That is why there are specific models of dust collectors that are specifically designed to remove that particular contaminant.

A dust collector system is made up of these basic components:

  1. Blower

  2. Dust filter

  3. Filter cleaning system

  4. Dust receptacle

  5. Dust removal system

Industrial dust collection equipment that is mainly used is fabric baghouses, inertial separators, cartridge collectors, wet scrubbers. and electrostatic precipitators.

Baghouses dust collectors are the most common in the industry due to their versatility and high cleaning efficiency.

Dust collection systems are a basic necessity or requirement in many sectors such as woodwork, agriculture, recycling, mining, and such.

Types of Dust Collector Baghouses/Bag Filters

The type of bag filters you need will be dependent on what industry you are in or what machines you are using.


Cotton-type bag filters are usually used in cleaning rooms, woodwork, and industries where rock work is done. Due to the large size of the particulates, the cotton bag filter is more than effective. But it will struggle when dealing with gases, and is highly flammable, with its maximum operating temperature being 82 Degree Celsius.


Polyester-type bag filters are rather resistant to chemicals, superior to other synthetics, and have a higher dry heat resistance factor. Today, polyesters are considered industry-standard and are therefore used most commonly.


With a maximum temperature of 250 Degree Celsius, nylon is used typically for highly abrasive materials and organic solvents.


In today’s world, it is necessary that industries have a dust collector system. If it isn’t enough that the air quality and pollution outside is bad, the inside can’t be the same. The health of the employees needs to be put at the forefront, especially considering many industries out there work with materials that are inherently hazardous or produce hazardous material/gases when they come in contact with the other gases that may be permeating throughout the premises or out in the atmosphere.

We, at modern filters, offer the service of manufacturing and installing these dust collector bag systems. So, if you are considering installing these at your premises and want good prices, contact us now!
