 Cylindricalness of Cage & breakage of its wire.


 Baffle plate for any holes.

IV. If stack is clear but the transfer points area connected to the bag filter are
dusty, check----
 DP of the B/F
 Check purge air pressure
 Check timing of the solenoid valves
 Check condition of the bags & reason of jamming.
 Check moisture in purge air
 Checking of purging of solenoid valves

V. Solenoid valve is checked for direct air supply to bags or not purging, if
found, informed to instrumentation department.
VI. It is ensured that the compressed air is dry and air pressure is up to
required working pressure for B/F.

b) MAINTENANCE OF BAG FILTER: -

I. Before start of the maintenance work ensure that the drives are properly
isolated or not. Take LC for doing any maintenance.
II. Check for any looseness of V- belts of the B/F fan.
III. Any entry of false air is prevented in bag filter circuit.
IV. Checking is done for any jamming of suction line connected to bag filter, if
any, it is cleaned
V. It is ensured that seating of flap / rotary air lock is proper in the hopper to
avoid entry of fresh air in the circuit.
VI. Checking is done for any jam in hopper.
VII. All the bags should be aligned and nozzle pipe centering is done for proper
purging and cleaning of the bags effectively.
VIII. Ensure that all the transfer point connections are re-positioned after
