The Shipping Department for a large plate glass window manufacturer installed a Model SPJ-36-4BL6-D to handle 4,000CFM at an Air-to-Cloth ratio of 15.8:1. The dust is a combination of wood dust, cardboard, and packaging materials with the bulk of the dust generated from saws. After only one month of operation the customer started having bridging issues at the exit of the hopper clogging up the flex hose. It was determined that the application had a heavier dust load than originally anticipated and the 8" diameter slide gate and flex hose assembly was not sufficient. SDC manufactured a special 12" diameter slide gate and flex hose assembly and had it onsite in less than one (1) week. After another month of operation, SDC received feedback that the new slide gate assembly worked out great and the customer is very pleased.
