The Monroe Cartridge Dust Collector is designed to provide continuous-duty collection and removal of airborne dust and particulate matter produced by manufacturing and processing operations at 99+% efficiency on many installations. Through the use of a Monroe Cartridge Dust Collector, these operations can discharge clean, filtered air back into the work area thereby reducing climate control costs.

Industrial Air Filtration: Dust Collection System Design
The Monroe Industrial Cartridge Style Dust Collector is designed to provide continuous-duty collection and removal of airborne dust and particulate matter produced by manufacturing and processing operations at 99+% efficiency on many installations. Through the use of a Monroe Cartridge Style Dust Collector, these operations can discharge clean, filtered air back into the work area reducing climate control costs.
The Monroe Cartridge Style Dust Collector modular design incorporates high efficiency, pleated cartridge filters to achieve maximum filter surface area in a relatively small housing. The cartridges are designed to provide a low static pressure drop.
Cartridge cleaning is accomplished by reverse compressed air pulses through a few cartridges at a time, allowing continuous operation without shut-down. These reverse pulses, with a velocity of twice the speed of sound, break away caked dust from the cartridge so that it can drop the collector bottom.
Top Performance with Better Cartridge Filter Cleaning
The cartridges in the Monroe collector are mounted in a vertical position. This assures that when the collected dust is pulsed from the cartridges, it falls to the bottom of the collector.
In units with horizontal cartridges, dust pulsed from above cartridges falls onto cartridges below. This reduces filtration capability and additional maintenance for rotating cartridge is necessary. This is avoided in the Monroe unit. The Monroe cartridges are easily accessed with pull out racks when replacement is necessary.
