INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
FOR SERIES "A" ASSEMBLED
DUSTUBE DUST COLLECTOR
This dust collector must be properly installed and receive proper attention in order to maintain its highest efficiency. The
following instructions and drawings are issued to aid in doing this as well as to provide a reference for ordering repair parts
The foundation is to be provided by the customer in accordance with the anchor bolt layout as shown on the General
Arrangement drawing. If the exhaust fan and motor are installed out of doors, a weather-proof enclosure should be
provided for them.
Remove the cover plate on the lower portion of the dust collector and cut out the required inlet size in the plate. DO NOT
DO ANY CUTTING DIRECTLY ON THE COLLECTOR WITH THE DUSTUBES INSTALLED. The inspection covers at
this level are interchangeable with the cover plate, and the inlet may be made at any of these positions. If the inlet is
changed, the baffle plate must be moved so that it is centered behind the inlet.
On standard dust collectors there is an outlet cut on the end for clean air piping. If an overmount is furnished, the
customer must cut an outlet opening either in the cover plate on the collector roof or in the outlet hood. When an end
mount is purchased, customer must remove the cover plate from the transition on the end and cut the outlet.
The shaker channels are held in place during shipping with a hold-down angle that runs the length of the collector or with
steel strapping that runs over the channels and through the cell plates. These parts are to be removed after the collector
is in an upright position. If steel strapping is used, it will be necessary to install the bottoms of the Dustubes that have
been removed, in the cell plate floor.
