Pleated Elements
Menardi's Mikro-Pleat pleated elements combine the advantages of traditional pulse-jet filter bags and cartridge filters.
Menardi's Mikro-Pleat pleated elements combine the advantages of traditional pulse-jet filter bags and cartridge filters. In many cases, they provide two or more times the cloth area of a conventional filter bag. Replacing existing bags with Mikro-Pleat elements can significantly increase baghouse performance without altering the size of the baghouse.

Benefits

  • Greater cloth area in less space - comparing a nominal 5" (30 cm) diameter filter, a 2 m Mikro-Pleat element has 50% more cloth area than a 120" (3 m) bag.
  • Mikro-Pleat elements are constructed of spun-bonded polyester, a durable material that promotes surface filtration and easy release of collected dust.
  • Pleats are widely spaced for easier pulse cleaning at lower pulse pressures than required by felt.
  • 99.99% filtration efficiency rivals membrane materials at a much lower cost.
  • Users report much lower pressure drops, longer bag life, and reduced compressed air consumption.
  • The support cage is integral to the filter element, thereby significantly reducing changeout costs.
  • Mikro-Pleat elements are more resistant to temperature, moisture, and abrasion than other filter cartridges; they are even washable in some cases.
  • Available in high temperature versions (up to 375°F / 191°C)
A wide variety of tubesheet attachment styles are available, permitting both clean and product side installations. In addition, you can choose a Pop-Top collar and venturi design that doesn't require special tools or clamps for installation.

Retrofit Service Available
