22 Point Inspection
A well maintained dust collector ensures your system is performing at peak efficiency. It’s also critical to minimizing unscheduled plant downtime and the wear and tear of your dust collector parts. As part of a regular preventative maintenance program, customers can also request a visit from bonded and insured technicians to perform either a dust collector inspection. An inspection typically includes an analysis of your dust collector and its most vital parts, a written report, and recommended corrective actions to solve any issues. An inspection may also include an exam of the following:
- Overall status of dust collector(s)
- Compressed air system for leaks
- Regulator pressure
- Air Shut off valve is sealed and is properly working
- Solenoids firing properly
- Diaphragm Valves firing properly
- Couplings are sealed
- Magnehelic is working properly
- Fan Vibration readings
- Bearing Temperatures
- And more
Dust Collector Service
Different from an inspection, a service on a dust collector system includes bonded and insured technicians performing a change out or corrective actions. This can include the following:
- Changing filters
- Seal minor air leaks
- Repair or replace damaged solenoids, valves, or diaphragm kits
- Any other repairs or troubleshooting needed on a baghouse – for example, vibration issues with a system after a filter change
