Heat Seaming & Seam Sealing
Using state-of-the-art equipment, Filter Holdings is able to heat seam fabrics on their longitudinal seam, eliminating needle holes. For other seams, an FDA compliant sealant can be applied to seal the needle holes.
Our Leak Proof Testing Process
A check for air/powder leak is a recommended procedure anytime new bags are installed or as a routine maintenance procedure.
Detect-A-Glow powders are highly concentrated fluorescent dyes dispersed in an inert base, engineered for optimum particle size distribution and flow properties. They are available in four specially selected colors to use individually or in complementary pairs to spot leaks and to pinpoint their sources.
Detect-A-Glow powders are furnished with a comprehensive guide for spotting leaks, eliminating them and rechecking for leaks. The guide includes suggested quantities to use for each application.
Detect-A-Glow light features a powerful UV lamp with a visible light filter and specular aluminum reflector, mounted in a rugged 304 stainless steel housing.
It is a high quality durable light for picking out hard to detect leaks.
Use of Detect-A-Glow Powders and light in conjunction with Filter Holdings Permashield Precoat Powder is your best assurance for a successful start-up and headache-free operation for years.
Why Leak Proofing Is Beneficial for Your Company
All filter media will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Maintenance programs should include periodic leak testing to ensure the filter media does not reduce the operating efficiency.
Maintenance programs frequently include periodic leak testing to ensure proper quality and the current filter media does not reduce the operating efficiency of the entire system.
Leak detection can identify failure issues that may both reduce the product’s quality and filtration processes. Examples may include: abrasion, thermal durability, and chemical attack.
