HIGH TEMPERATURE -BAGHOUSE START-UP
The following instructions should be carefully followed to avoid problems which could occur during start-up.
Improper start-up could cause:
- motor overload
- burner blow out
- damage to filter fabric
Damper down 90%
Start burners - preheat system quickly to reduce condensation.
Bump start fan 3 or 4 times to draw warm air in to semi-heat baghouse.
Slowly open damper while monitoring motor current to design current load. Do not exceed full load current.
When operating temperature is reached throughout system, begin product flow.
After reaching a pressure drop of 6 inches across baghouse, begin cleaning cycle.
As system stabilizes, readjust dampers as required.
All high temperature installations should be installed with a high temperature cut-out switch in the duct prior to the
baghouse. To protect bags from burning, adjust the switch to shut fan off between 375 and 400 degrees F.
If burners should accidentally be blown out, ventilate baghouse before restarting.
