This is one of our best selling services ever and it is a great way to start gaining control over your dust collection systems. On average, our customers tell us they see an increase in their dust collector performance by 25% or more and longer times between shutdowns! Our baghouse engineers are trained to help you get more out of your current system by using the latest technological advancements, operating techniques and maintenance procedures. Doing so will improve your system efficiency and lower your operating costs. Also, we identify any technical issues you are having with your system and offer suggestions on how to implement them. Often times minor adjustments are all that is needed to see dramatic improvements in your current operation. These adjustments can lead to significant savings both in terms of increased efficiency, and lower maintenance costs.

A few of the most common issues we identify during our system audits:

  • Filter selection: recommend alternative fabrics, finishes (e.g. PTFE membrane), filter types (e.g. pleated filters
  • Baghouse condition and unit selection: recommend repairs (structural, pulse valves, gaskets, etc.), retrofit older shaker and reverse-air baghouses to newer pulse jet style, condense several inefficient small units into one larger system,  etc.
  • Examine current operating methods and make recommendations on how to improve efficiency, reduce operating costs and system downtime (e.g. startup and shut down procedures, fan operating parameters, cleaning system settings, etc.)
  • Examine current maintenance procedures and make recommendations for improvement. Includes daily, weekly, monthly, yearly procedures, inspection checklist, handling of replacement bags, diagnosing need for bag replacement, proper bag replacement techniques, etc.
  • Replacing out of date equipment and methods with latest technology, such as pleated filters, clean-on-demand cleaning, PTFE membrane filters, etc.
  • Also includes recommendations for new OSHA standards for combustible dust, such as explosion protection and fire suppression systems.
