The client, a local manufacturer, was having air flow issues within it’s paint operation. This was causing major dust/powder buildup in the nearby areas of the plant. Not only this, but the inefficiency of the airflow was hampering overall plant performance.
After on onsite review with the customer, Chris Case (Account Manager) and Travis Stirewalt (Technical Specialist) were able to determine that the 2nd and 3rd stages were horribly neglected. In addition, we pointed out that although airflow with no filters and clean filters was excellent, the airflow with the clogged stage 2 and 3 were causing the issues. We installed the Kemwove filters during a one day trial and testing period of the filter process. Two weeks later, we revisited the plant to check on the filters and then again a couple of weeks after that. The customer had moved into some of their old first stage inventory (paint pockets) but had left our 2nd and 3rd stages alone as requested. The 2nd stage filters were absolutely full and had spared the bulk of powder capture leaving the 3rd stage pocket filters in great shape.
With the collected data over the test and review period, we were able to provide a concise filter plan and maintenance schedule for monthly, quarterly and annual review. For this customer – better air flow, improved plant performance, and a reduction of annual filter costs!
