Filter Cartridges

Looking for a local partner in industrial cartridge filter bags? Look no further than FabCo Industrial Services! For years, bag filters have been the standard for dust collectors. However, advances in technology have led to the development of industrial cartridge filter bags, (or pleated filtration media), which offer several advantages over traditional bag filters.

Each year, stricter environmental regulations are imposed. This pushes plants to update their aging dust collection infrastructure. Additionally, many plants aim to boost productivity, which places higher demands on existing systems. Upgrading to a newer, more efficient dust collection system is often the ideal solution. However, budget constraints in a sluggish economy can make this difficult.

FabCo is at the forefront of this innovation, providing high-quality industrial cartridge filters that enhance dust collection efficiency and effectiveness to the Fox Cities and beyond! Contact us to get a quote on industrial cartridge filter bags today.

Pleated Bags

Why Choose Industrial Cartridge Filters?


  • Increased Surface Area: The pleats in these filters greatly expand the surface area, allowing for lower air-to-cloth ratios within the same physical space.
  • Higher Dust Retention: The deep pockets created by the pleats, made from woven fabric, enable higher dust retention rates.
  • Reduced Abrasion: With shorter overall bag lengths, industrial cartridge filter bags stay above the inlet gas stream, minimizing abrasion from incoming dust particles.
  • Compatibility with Existing Systems: Lastly, industrial cartridge filter bags are designed to replace fabric bag filters and cages used in many dust collectors without extensive redesigns.

The Benefits of Choosing Industrial Cartridge Filters


  • Lower Maintenance Costs: Reduced frequency of change-outs and washable exteriors lead to lower maintenance expenses.
  • High Efficiency: Industrial cartridge filters can achieve efficiencies of up to 99.97%, providing superior filtration performance.
  • Increased Airflow: Each filter unit allows higher airflow, improving overall system performance.
  • Enhanced Durability: Industrial cartridge filters offer better resistance to inlet abrasion, increasing their lifespan.
  • Maximized Surface Filtration: With up to a five-fold increase in surface area, industrial cartridge filters significantly enhance filtration capacity.
  • Reduced Compressed Air Usage: Efficient design minimizes the need for compressed air, lowering operational costs.
