Differential Pressure is the difference in pressure in a dust collector from the “dirty side” to the “clean side.” Changes are typically an indication of changes in the condition of the filters bags, such as a bag leak or rupture, or an indication that the cleaning system is not functioning properly.
Differential pressure is measured using a variety of gauges, such as U-Tube Manometers, Magnehelic® gauges and Photohelic® gauges, all of which Southern Filter Media (SFM) stocks for its OEM baghouse partners and their customers.
The Magnehelic® Pressure Gauge measures differential pressure whereas the Photohelic® Gauge measures the differential pressure and provides the capability for “on-demand” cleaning in conjunction with a timer board; timers are also available with built-in pressure switch and differential pressure readout.
On-demand cleaning based on differential pressure has a variety of benefits including compressed air savings, longer life on solenoids and diaphragm valves, and extending the life of your filter bags.
