How Much Leak Test Powder Do I Need?
In general to determine the quantity of tracer compound needed to run one leak test, use the following guidelines:
For every 1,000 ft2 (93 m2) of filter cloth, one pound of powder is needed.
If filter cloth square footage per compartment or Baghouse is known, divide by 1,000 to obtain the number of pounds of powder to use. The powder quantity may vary depending on the length of ductwork between the fan and Baghouse.
