Using Triboelectric Dust Detection Systems To Cut Production Downtime

Preventing unscheduled downtime is a huge priority for maintenance and engineering teams. Production downtime means enormous losses. Reducing it can mean the difference between turning a profit and operating at a loss for a plant.

Dust emissions issues frequently lead to shutdowns and directly impact the bottom line of operations at many facilities. However, triboelectric dust detection systems have proven effective in reducing system downtime due to particle/dust emissions. Even with relatively small upfront costs, triboelectric systems can provide a high return on investment in this area.

The Truth about Differential Pressure Gauges and Baghouse Monitoring

The Truth about Differential Pressure Gauges and Baghouse Monitoring

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard this line – “I am only required to monitor the differential pressure on my baghouses – that’s what my permit says…” This has caused the perception that a DP gauge can be used to detect leaks in a baghouse and satisfy baghouse monitoring requirements. Well – this can be true – but only when your filter bags resemble something like Swiss cheese – or half your bags fall off of the tube sheet!
