The CGV-900 offers built-in compliance, allowing the unit to compensate for irregularities in part surfaces and maintain contact with a workpiece. The compliance force is adjustable, so users can fine-tune finishing processes in real time.

Energy-Efficient Baghouse Filters

100% polyester, various pleat geometries Collection efficiencies up to 99.9%, reduced compressed-air usage

Recently, ASTECH INC. announced a new line of pleated bag filters to reduce energy costs and increase baghouse efficiency.  The pleated bag filters are intended as a preferable alternative to fabric bags and cages, because they last 2-3 times longer.  “Longer lasting filters means reduced filter replacement and reduction in downtime and maintenance costs,” the supplier noted. 

The filters are made entirely 100% spunbound polyester, and engineered with various pleat geometries and multple construction styles, and engineered to fit most OEM’s pulse-jet baghouses

These filters have rigid physical media properties, with top- and bottom-loading designs, they promote surface filtration and dust release.

Astech claims its filters will achieve collection efficiencies up to 99.9%, and reduce compressed-air usage.

“Our pleated filters are easily installed, last longer, and will save energy costs immediately over conventional filters,” stated Astech Inc. president Alan Bukach. “Our expertise as a foundry puts us in an ideal testing environment.  We were so pleased with the results, that we added it to our line.”

Astech manufactures high-performance blasting-system (Wheelabrator, Pangborn, BCP, Goff and others) replacement parts for metalcasting and power companies, and operates as a steel jobbing foundry that specializes in castings for heat, wear and corrosion resistance.
