Pleated Filter Elements

October 11, 2010
GE EnergyPulsePleat filter elements increase filtration efficiency, helping reduce emissions, increasing airflow for more throughput and production, and leading to potential energy savings by requiring less compressed air for pulse cleaning. This media – a product of 100 percent spunbound polyester media – is unlike traditional felt fabrics because of its tight pore structure, which resists surface penetration of particulate and has rigid physical properties that allow it to hold a pleat without needing supporting backing material. Once pleated and molded into a filter element, the surface area is two to three times greater than conventional filter bags. That extra filtration area reduces operating differential pressure and air-to-cloth ratios.
