Dust collection problems solved

From inspection programs to conversion opportunities, Parker has a wide range of field services to support your dust collection system.


We help ensure your next outage is a success because:

  • you will work with a dedicated, knowledgeable project manager for your specific job
  • our service crews can handle installations or full change outs
  • we also offer technical advisors to oversee local crews, troubleshooting, and inspections

    Only one purchase order is required to have your baghouse completely refurbished and having one company responsible for all aspects of the change out reduces the hassle of coordinating bags and crews.

    System Inspection Programs

    Our inspection programs include Findings & Recommendations (F&R) and Detailed Technical Inspection (DTI). Two thorough inspection programs focused on specific areas of your baghouse system. In addition our Strategic Technical Evaluation Program (STEP), which is a complete ventilation system analysis.

    Advantages and Benefits of a STEP Audit:

    • Provides overview and analysis of existing system
    • Identifies problem areas of the ventilation equipment
    • Calculations for airflows and duct sizing
    • Recommendations for repair or design changes
    • Increases planning accuracy
    • Recommendations for potential increased production
    • Recommendations for decreasing emissions and increasing system efficiency

    Bag Testing Services

    If the filter is representative of the filters in your collector, it can be beneficial in assessing performance and mitigating baghouse issues. However, the filter evaluation cannot absolutely determine filter life but can give basic knowledge of where in the life cycle the filters are located.

    Standard Filter Analysis

    • Visual Inspection: Includes images of filter conditions including failures, wear patterns, and any anomalies observed.
    • Analytical Testing per ASTM Guidelines: Includes Air Permeability, Mullen Burst/Strength Testing, and Unit Weight. Additional testing if applicable can include Mechanical Testing – Tensile/Elongation, Digital Scanning Calorimetry, MIT Flex Cycle, and Loss On Ignition.
    • ePTFE Membrane Adhesion Test: Microscopic Analysis is performed to identify the Level of Dust Penetration, Potential Fiber Degradation, and ePTFE Membrane Condition.

    Custom Analysis is also available, and we will evaluate filter performance trend analysis over time

    Start Up Services

    Regardless of the start-up process, we can help bring the filters on-line properly through multiple or single compartment baghouses with any type of filter media. Cement, power, foundry or any other industry, let us assist with the experience we have gained through the years.

    Baghouse startup procedures will vary from application to application and different types of baghouses. We can help you get off to a great start with our expertise. For conventional filtration medias, the importance of the dust cake as the primary mode of filtration is paramount. For hot gas applications there are other critical areas that need to be monitored, in particular if there are multiple compartments or single compartment units. Start-up services for combustion processes have a different set of consideration during this process.

    Conversions & Rebuilds

    Changing your baghouse design can often dramatically improve its operation and the operation of the entire production line. Updating from a reversed air or shaker to a pulse jet can increase airflow, reduce down time and maintenance costs. It can also save power required for the ID fan therefore reducing electrical costs.

    Baghouse inspections from experienced, well-informed experts are vital to ensuring the investment you make in your system will achieve your business objectives.

    Prior to making recommendations for a baghouse conversion or rebuild a proper inspection that analyzes all aspects of the baghouse is a must. Every aspect from the timeframe the baghouse went online, to the layout, design volume, inlet temperature, gas volume required to vent the system, total filtration area, problems and opportunities to improve system performance needs to be studied. Sometimes simple changes can solve persistent baghouse filtration issues, or even help a marginal system become more reliable and efficient.

    Following your decision on next steps, whether you decide to repair, rebuild, replace units or convert we can help with execution of plans and ensuring the plans deliver the results. We have full-service crews to install your conversions and upgrades, highly experienced technical advisors and dedicated project managers that help to ensure your conversion and system projects finish on time and on budget.
