|Air Flow - The Cleaning Process|
Like all Astec products, the baghouse is constructed of high quality materials to stand up to the demands of high production. An Astec baghouse also makes maintenance easy with well thought out access doors.
Baghouses are the equipment of choice for particulate control of hot mix asphalt plants. The typical HMA facility baghouse consist of a fabric filter system enclosed by a steel structure. The basic technology of a baghouse is simple. The exhaust stream passes through the fabric filters before it enters the atmosphere. Dust does not pass through the felt walls and accumulates on the outside of the bags.
Today's baghouses routinely meet the most stringent emissions limits. Baghouses also offer economic advantages and better utilize the aggregate by returning dust to the mix instead of wasting it.
