« Part 3: Just what exactly is a "bag house" Part 4 of Industrial Scale Dust Collection series Part 5: Removing old bags. »

Here’s what showed up last night …

Unloaded with two oversized fork trucks and a front end loader.

Maintenance electrician on the fork truck is waiving hello and expressing how much he likes working with me :^o

Here’s my 6’ 2” engineering intern posing with the return air abort gate and the 60 HP blower..

He’s been assisting with this project most of the summer and today was his last day, so I’m glad he got to see the monster he helped create.

Being a second hand system, I wasn’t surprised to see that it was full of dust… but now I’m wondering just exactly what type of dust this is. It’s very, very fine and doesn’t seem to absorb water. Hmmmmmm… a mystery to be solved … I just hope it’s not toxic :^o

If that system doesn’t Suck enough you have got a Big Problem.

I’m guessing, as it is blue….
That this is NOT a modified/hotrodded Harbor Freight 2HP DC system!!!
