Clean the baghouse only when necessary, significantly reducing the cost of compressed air usage
Filter media life is a result of the number of cleaning cycles - not the total months or years that the filters have been used.
Intelligent controls will only clean the baghouse when it is absolutely necessary
Comply with EPA regulations while combining baghouse controls and particulate monitoring to provide leak locatiing down to the specific row of filters
Get immediate notification of baghouse failures and the location of the issue that needs attention - reducing discovery time from hours to minutes
Predict when maintenance will be required on industrial dust collectors with enough time to schedule maintenance at a time that's convienent
Using baghouse diagnostics, plant operators are able to:
Locate failing filter media by compartment and row often weeks before emission levels become reportable
Avoid plugged filters and multiple failures by quickly detecting and locating shorted and open solenoids
Detect and locate frozen/ruptured pulse diaphrams - avoiding excessive compressed air usage and minimizing the chance of blinded filters
Using the predictive monitoring capabilities of baghouse control systems (such as EPA self checks, intelligent diagnostics, and process alarms) allows organizations to automatically be notified at the first sign of impending failures well before an issue becomes critical. This allows the organization to plan maintenance and repairs at a time when it is convenient for them.
Intelligent cleaning systems allow plant operators to adjust the cleaning cycles of their baghouse automatically based on differential pressure, allowing companies to:
When compared to basic timer boards or traditional cleaning methods, intelligent cleaning systems ensure that cleaning only takes place when there is a need - avoiding unneccessary wear on filter media and excessive compressed air usage.
Particulate monitoring has been replacing opacity meters and visual emissions inspections as a preferred method of complying with EPA regulations because of the increased sensitivity that triboelectric monitoring offers over emissions monitoring methods.
Incorporating particulate monitoring into a baghouse control systems allows plants to:
