Dust collector bags are an essential part of any dust collection system. They attach to dust collector units and trap the dust that enters them. There are many different kinds and sizes of dust collector bag, just as there are many types of dust collectors. From large industrial units fit for a factory to small bags that attach to a home hobbyist's table saw. dustcollectorbag.net aims to provide an online information guide to dust collector bags.
There are several things to consider when looking for a dust collector bag. The first thing to consider is the material the bag is made out of. Dust collector bags are made out of fabric materials which can be cotton, synthetic or glass fiber. The materials affect the filter strength and cost of the dust collection bag. Of course another consideration for dust collection bags is their cost. The dust collector bags need to be replaced periodically, so replacement costs for a bag are an ongoing issue. As previously mentioned, the material affects the size of particles that get filtered. Dust collector bags can filter out particles anywhere from 1 micron to 30 microns. Another issue to consider is the permeability of the bag. If a dust collector bag is more permeable, it makes it easier for air to flow through it. This results in a more effecient filtration system, and increases the CFM (cubic feet per minute) of the system. When a dust collector bag system has a high CFM, that means more air gets filtered per minute.
