THE ACT GROUP provides the highest quality replacement bags; all filter bags will meet or exceed the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications. We also make recommendations on alternate materials to provide specific duties.

THE ACT GROUP provides quality and great prices for cage designs. A variety of materials and construction are available to fit various applications. Bag clamps and connections are available for immediate delivery.


THE ACT GROUP will determine the type and size of the existing valve and replace as needed for its intended purpose. Gauges and fittings are available for most makes of bag-houses. Timers are shipped with most pulse jet type dust collectors. The timers sequence the cleaning pulse to the filter bags. Modern designs incorporate solid-state circuitry, which requires little maintenance. The latest designs incorporate an "on-demand" circuitry that allows the system to "pulse" only when required. The system operates when the differential across the bags is greater than the set pressure.


THE ACT GROUP will check any dust control system for performance during normal working conditions or under other circumstances as requested by our customers. The ACT Group technicians will check ducting velocities, inlet drafts, leaks in door gaskets, ducting, and in the body of the dust collectors. We will conduct bag leak tests utilizing fluorescent powders and UV lights.


THE ACT GROUP will study your system making a layout of the existing system if one is not available and determine what changes or adjustments are required to optimize system performance. Every attempt is made to use existing equipment in the upgrade. The exhaust fan and the dust collector make up the heart of your system. We will determine if the existing fan is sized properly or if it can be modified (motor size and/or fan speed), to fit.
