During the operational life of installed filter media in a dust collector,
it is frequently found that emissions have risen to an unacceptable level,
yet often the majority of filters within the installation are known to be
intact and in good condition.
Invariably, these sporadic failures are as a result of abrasion of the
filter elements against each other or the adjacent walls of the equipment,
or from flexing of the filter media against the support cage.
Other causes can be localised heat or sparks, the misalignment or
progressive loosening of filters against seals, or frequently the
accidental introduction of sharp objects into the system.
It is often impossible to locate or identify the failed unit(s),
thus conventionally requiring a complete, but unnecessary filter
change to restore the original level of performance.
To overcome this problem, and to avoid the potential expense of
a major refurbishment, Filter Plus Ltd. have the facility for
locating each individual failure by the injection of a UV reactive
fluorescent dye - "REACTOLITEŽ" - into the system.
"REACTOLITEŽ" works with all types of extractors; shake-clean, reversair
reverse jet; fabric filters and ceramic candles; low or high temperatures.
