Leak powder is used to detect compromised filter bags, seals, tubesheets, or other ares with the baghouse system. The powder is introduced into the system either from the dirty air plenum, or a collection point in the system. As the powder flows through the system, trace amounts are deposited in areas that have come into contact with the powder. A maintenance technician will then perform a visual inspection of the entire baghouse with a black light which causes the leak powder to glow.
