Filter Maintenance Advice

Please check your dust collector filters on a monthly basis.  Filters can be monitored in a few different ways. The first indication of the condition of your dust collector filters is the pressure differential gauge.  This reading is a direct reading of how dirty your filters are.  Dust collection systems are generally designed to run at no more than 6” of pressure differential.  Although this may vary in every application we suggest using this as a guideline.  If you have an after filter plenum on your dust collector, you should consider changing your filters at 2”-3”.  Once your pressure rises above these numbers you could notice a drop in air flows.  Changing your filters regularly will help sustain good airflow and good air quality.

In addition to the filter gauge, your senses will also help you monitor your filters. If you see dust coming out of the exhaust of the fan, you may have a hole or a bad seal. If you notice different smells in the air, you may have a bad seal, a hole or you may be losing airflow. When you lose airflow, the dust collector will not collect the dust and your air quality will suffer.

Please watch for these signs and check your pressure gauge regularly. Please contact us for new filters when you start to notice the indicators mentioned above.
