Why are only disposable filters used for dust collection?

There are two procedures. Industrial filtering technology allows filters to be regenerated by means of beating, shaking or backwashing. This always makes sense, if the dust load equates to several milligrams (and grams) per cubic metres. The use of disposable filters is not economic here. However, 15x more energy is required because they cause pressure losses in the lines and tight cross-sections in the system.

Disposable filters are always economically viable, if the dust load is up to approx. 1-2 mg per cubic metre, which is a typical dust load in many types of production or metalworking operations, as well as logistics facilities. In this case, disposable filter systems combined with lower power consumption offer a highly efficient solution.
