(American Fabric Filter sister bags improve vacuum)

American Fabric Filter optimizes filter bag designs for
each individual application. OEM filters without enough
surface area reduce a collector’s efficiency by
restricting airflow. High internal pressure pushes fine
dust into a dense layer that further blocks airflow. A
cost-effective solution is adding “sister” bags
interconnected with the main filters to provide up to
three times the breathing surface.
