It is the Spring Cleaning Time for your Dust Collector!

Now that winter is winding down, it’s time to get ready for summer!  That means planning vacation with the family!  Cleaning up the yard!  Send the kids outside so they burn off all that energy they accumulated over the winter! 

It’s also a good time to check your dust collector. Now that you will be able to open the doors to your facility without freezing the workers, dust that has accumulated over winter will be dislodged.  And while you shouldn’t have dust layers on your equipment (NFPA specs and OSHA frowns upon it), we all know that it happens at times. 

So now is the time to check your dust collector!

Check for the following and if you have any of them, get your dust collector a checkup.

  • High pressure drop
  • Dusts exhaust
  • Dust piles by the pickups
  • Noise from the fan
  • Damaged or inoperative airlock
