Common Dusts and Dust Collector Ranges vs Particle Size

This shows some of the particle size ranges of common dust applications along with the range where dust collectors work. As shown cyclones and dropout boxes will not get 100% of the dust.

There can always be some material getting through as the particle size distribution might always include smaller dust than normal. Wet scrubbers and filter collectors (baghouses and cartridge collectors) will collect the larger particles easily. However, installing a pre-filter cyclone to remove the larger particles will lower water usage (wet scrubber) and increase filter life (filter collectors).
