A.C.T. Dust Collectors TLM Modular Baghouses are designed to meet the unique requirements of each application. Custom designed and built systems are common, and our engineering team can help find the dust collection system that's right for you.
Heavy-duty internally reinforced 10-gauge walls and robust structure meet industry demands. Utilizing computerized simulation software, the pulse-jet cleaning system operational design has been optimized for efficient cleaning and airflow. Hinged filter access doors and our exclusive tool-free bag replacement, allow for the quickest, easiest maintenance.
The TLM Baghouse operation is simple, proven and efficient. Dust-laden air is drawn from the source through a duct system and into the hopper inlet. Through air expansion and an internal deflection plate, the airstream velocity is reduced so large particles drop into the hopper below. The remaining dust particles are filtered through the bag filters. This ensures that only clean air passes into the top of the unit, through the fan, and is either exhausted to the atmosphere or returned to the building.
The TLM Baghouse brings you the culmination of many years of experience with quality and features unrivaled in the industry.
The ACT TLM 585-10 Modular Baghouse is designed to meet the unique requirements of many applications including woodworking, sanding, finishing, food processing, pharmaceutical and other industrial environments.
When it comes to transportation, the dimensions of the TLM Baghouse are such that trucking can be done without oversize permits. Installation is simple and straightforward with the modular design and integral lifting lugs. Overall design is compact to minimize footprint and overall height to fit in the tightest space available.

When this dust collection system was designed, maintenance was top of mind. Our baghouse dust collectors are easy to maintain because of the following standard features:
Automatic Venturi-Assisted Pulse Filter Cleaning System
ACTion-Lock Exclusive Tool-Free Bag Replacement
OSHA Compliant Hand Rail and Caged Access Ladder
This ACT TLM 585-10 dust collection system holds (585) 10ft long filter bags. The TLM Baghouse features downtime cleaning as well, so the system performs a final pulse-clean cycle after shutdown to ensure maximum dust release and long filter life.
As the dust accumulates on the filters, an on-board pressure gauge monitors differential pressure between the clean side and the dirty side of the baghouse. Once a set maximum differential pressure is reached, a solid state timer board activates the cleaning system. The timer board activates an electric solenoid, which opens the diaphragm valve. Compressed air from the manifold on the baghouse is released through the diaphragm valve into the blowpipe above the bag filters. The pressure from the pulse-jet removes the dust buildup by blowing it off outward from the inside of the filter. This all occurs while the system is online for continuous duty operation. The TLM baghouse features downtime cleaning as well, so the system performs a final pulse-clean cycle after shutdown to ensure maximum dust release and long filter life.
The main housing of the A.C.T. Dust Collector is 7 and 10 gauge, all-welded steel. Systems with bolted panel construction can leak over time, so the housing of the A.C.T Dust Collector is fabricated with continuous, welded seams.
The most popular feature of the TLM Baghouse series is our Action-Lock Tool-Free Bag Replacement. Top load filter change outs made easy with a hinged filter access door.

The TLM Baghouse operation is simple, proven, and efficient. Dust-laden air is drawn from the source through a duct system and into the hopper inlet. Through air expansion and an internal deflection plate, the airstream velocity is reduced so large particles drop into the hopper below. The remaining dust particles are filtered through bag filters. This ensures that only clean air passes into the clean air plenum, through the fan, and is either exhausted to the atmosphere or returned to the building.
With hundreds of A.C.T. dust collectors manufactured and installed, every serial number is a statement of quality. Lifting lugs are engineered to the correct lifting angle and formed doors for maximum rigidity, coupled with deep one-piece gaskets, maintain the seal. Angle iron support structure and base plates are pre-punched for easy installation. A fastener kit is included with Grade 5, zinc-plated fasteners. A premium blast, prime and paint process ensures the system will remain in excellent cosmetic condition for many years.
At A.C.T. Dust Collectors, we do more than sell dust collectors. We want to be your number one resource for all your dust collection needs. From our helpful glossary of terms to our on-demand webinars and videos – you can find it all right here.

A.C.T. Dust Collectors prides itself in offering the highest quality O.E.M filters for their baghouse collectors. Dirty air from the dust source enters the A.C.T. dust collector at the top of the main housing. There are inlets on the roof and optional inlets on the front for the most efficient connection. As air enters the dust collector, dust accumulates on the outside of the filters as air is drawn through the high-efficiency media.
