The manual was prepared to assist Federal and State enforcement groups in the following decisionmaking areas: estimation of filter system (baghouse) compliance with emissions regulations; appraisal of filter system adequacy for a specific control application; and evaluation of operating and maintenance procedures in the light of recommended practices. In Chapter 2, basic concepts pertaining to fabric filtration, particle behavior, and particle size measurements are highlighted so that inspection personnel can evaluate facilities for which no precedence has been established. Given prior experience or the need for immediate action, however, the Manual user may go directly to Chapter 3 where important day-to-day aspects of filter system operation are presented along with emphasis on what may go wrong and what remedial measures should be undertaken. Different types and procedures for baghouse inspections are described in Chapter 4; e.g., compliance determination, startup, troubleshooting, general preventitive maintenance, or special investigations, where the specific information sought and the sequence of the inspection process may vary.
