Operating principle of the bag filter ATEX
Dusty air is fed into the bottom of the filter through the by-pass inlet. Coarse dust contained in the air extracted are subdued to first treatment and drop into the collection hopper.
Passing the quiet chamber dust goes through the filter bags. During its operation , the ATEX bag filter is kept in perfect order through a cyclic cleaning system.
