Visually observing emissions requires a person to physically view the outlet of the fan or to measure or monitor the HEPA filter used prior to the fan. The most effective way to monitor and identify leaking bags is to first have a broken bag detector installed. The detector monitors normal dust levels while in operation and alarms when those levels exceed...
