Do You Need Industrial Dust Collector Maintenance Training?

Oct 29, 2019

You’ve made the investment in a new Imperial Systems dust collection system. Now our technicians have arrived to help supervise the startup. While they’re there, is it time to invest in dust collector maintenance training?

Our experienced startup technicians know our products. They know how to maintain them to avoid problems. In addition, they know where to start troubleshooting if something goes wrong. Having this preventative maintenance training can save money on repairs or a service visit later.

While a dust collector maintenance manual guides you through the basics of system upkeep, many of us learn better with hands-on training for maintenance rather than by reading a manual. Our startup technicians certainly give you that hands-on experience with your system from the first day.

You’ve made a major investment in your dust collection system. If you’ve purchased a CMAXX, you can expect many years of reliable service from it. However, no system runs forever without maintenance. Dust collector training teaches you how to keep your dust collection system working as it should.

Without proper maintenance, a dust collection system can run into many problems. For instance, some of these problems might shut down the system completely, causing downtime for your processes that rely on it. Further, other problems affect the system’s performance or increase the risk of a fire.

Preventative maintenance training is the best way to prevent expensive downtime and performance issues. A one-time training teaches you what to look for and how to address common dust collector problems. Many of our service calls address problems due to improper maintenance.


How Does Our Dust Collector Maintenance Training Work?

When you purchase a CMAXX, Imperial Systems startup technicians will usually perform or assist with installation. While that person is onsite, you may choose to have them provide training for your staff. With their help, you can develop a dust collector maintenance checklist. As a result, this will allow staff to feel confident performing preventative maintenance and keep the system running.

At your request, we will schedule industrial maintenance training for your dust collector when technicians are onsite for installation. The procedures covered in the training will depend on the details of your system. The training may include:

  • Monitoring differential pressure and when to change filters
  • Correct filter changeout procedures
  • Checking solenoid and diaphragm valves for leaks
  • Making sure compressed air is pulse cleaning filters correctly
  • Checking door and filter seals
  • Checking the function of fire and explosion safety devices
  • Troubleshooting common problems

The startup technicians provide this training to the staff responsible for the system maintenance. If you choose to have this training provided, discuss this with your Imperial Systems sales representative. The training almost always pays for itself by preventing expensive problems and repairs.


How to Sign Up for Maintenance Training
