Service Objective

Keeping your dust collection operations at their optimal efficiency is not only a requirement of emission control but also critical in keeping up with your production capacity and schedule. Baghouse Inspection and Maintenance refers to the regular assessment and upkeep of the baghouse system to ensure its proper functioning and efficiency. The objectives of this service are:
  • Compliance with emission regulations
  • Optimal dust collection efficiency
  • Extended equipment and component lifespan
  • Energy efficiency and cost savings
  • Reduced production downtime
  • Health and safety of personnel and environment
  • Cost savings due to reduced costly repairs

Service Description

The purpose of looking after your machine is to keep the equipment running at peak performance and avoid any potential downtime caused by equipment failure. Baghouses are no different, and they should be inspected, maintained, and repaired on a regular basis to prevent issues such as pressure drop, leakage, and contamination, among others. Routine baghouse inspections are crucial aspects of good preventative maintenance practice, as a timely inspection can detect a developing problem before it escalates and requires an unplanned outage to resolve.
  • Daily: Simple observations like pressure drop readings, cleaning system performance check, and visual inspection of components for obvious issues.
  • Weekly: More detailed inspection of valves, dampers, dust removal system, and differential pressure readings.
  • Quarterly: Thorough inspection of filter bags, cages, seals, ducts, and internal hoppers. Leakage tests might be conducted.
  • Annually: Comprehensive inspection of the entire baghouse structure, welds, bolts, and internal components. Third-party bag testing might be considered.
  • Pressure Drop Monitoring: Tracks filter bag performance and identifies potential clogging issues.
  • Visual Inspection: Checks for rips, tears, holes, or abrasions in filter bags and cages.
  • Leak Detection: Specialized tests with specific detection equipment help to identify filter leaks.
  • Cleaning System Inspection: Ensures proper functioning of pulse-jet valves, compressors, and cleaning mechanisms.
  • Component Inspection: Checks valves, dampers, hoppers, and other components for wear and tear.
  • Structural Integrity Assessment: Examines the baghouse structure for corrosion, cracks, or damage.
A proper maintenance program with key data recorded and documented provides the following benefits:

It provides a history of operation that can be used to effectively plan filter bag cleaning and replacements;
It helps to quickly identify and fix mechanical problems before they develop into major maintenance and operational issues;
It serves as a reporting tool for your emission control requirements.
