SDC High-Efficiency Baghouse Saves Energy

49 SDC 150Scientific Dust Collectors’ (SDC) new cleaning nozzle provides an improvement in cleaning technology that achieves superior performance even at lower compressed air levels – as low as 80 psig. In addition, SDC’s unique baghouse design removes flow-restricting venturies, thus reducing the filtered air velocity and saving 2-in. WC on fan requirements. These energy savings are unique to the industry.
