Recommended Operating Temperature for Continuous Service in Dust Collectors

The following are recommended operating temperatures for various fabrics under dry heat conditions. These figures were chosen in order to optimize bag wear life. Higher temperature operation should be avoided as it will speed the degradation of the fabric. Likewise, surges in temperature should not exceed 10% of the rated maximum for more than 10 minutes per day.

 

Fiber
Recommended Maximum Temperature
Operating Temperature Surge 
Cotton 180°F 220°F
Rayon 180°F 220°F
Wool 200°F 225°F
Polypropylene 180°F 220°F
Nylon 200°F 225°F
Co-Polymer Acrylic 260°F 275°F
Polyester 275°F 300°F
Homopolymer Acrylic 284°F 300°F
Ryton 375°F 400°F
Nomex 375°F 425°F
Teflon 450°F 500°F
Fiberglass 500°F 550°F
