Improve Your Dust Collector Safety, Performance and Reliability

April 19, 2022
The importance of having an inspection and preventative maintenance program
Depending on the issue, dust collector down time caused by maintenance issues can be catastrophic, costing a company days or weeks of missed production while making repairs or waiting on parts. Because of this, it’s crucial to keep spare parts on hand, conduct daily monitoring, and perform scheduled, preventative maintenance on your dust collectors. Sly recommends a few handy tips to be prepared:

    • Keep a minimum of extra diaphragm valve repair kits, replacement solenoids and have some spare filters on hand.

    • Monitor changes in the differential pressure between the clean and dirty air plenums

    • Record events that cause upset conditions in your process, which will give you vital information regarding the current heath (or unhealth) of your baghouse

Don’t get lost in the dust
