Your industrial dust collector is likely a crucial part of your facility’s operations, whether you realize it or not. Making sure it operates properly ensures compliance with environmental regulations, provides a safe working environment for plant personnel and avoid costly production downtime. Having accurate information about your dust collector’s performance in real time enables maintenance, operations and management to work together to keep these vital systems running at peak efficiency. Regrettably, many dust collector operators continue to use outdated dust collector monitoring methods that do not adequately meet the challenges of todays industrial workplace. These include visual observations, differential pressure or opacity meters.
Triboelectric technology has proved the most reliable and cost effective method of monitoring and recording particulate matter emissions. In addition, in some applications it provides the only practical option for accurately monitoring PM 2.5 emissions. For this reason, triboelectric detection technology has earned the recommendation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as the only recommended particulate matter emissions monitoring technology for many of its standards.
For this reason, triboelectric systems can play a key role in helping dust collector operators quickly detect when individual filters suffer leaks as well as when entire sets of filters reach the end of their service life and begin leaking. This fact, coupled with Auburn’s capability of predicting baghouse failure has made Auburn the premier supplier of dust monitoring equipment to users of this air pollution control equipment.
Auburn’s range of triboelectric monitoring products (TRIBO series) provide the following benefits to dust collector operators:
Although many industries are not mandated to do monitoring, they do face fines when a problem occurs. Having a reliable inexpensive method to monitor and verify emissions, makes good sense. If one fine is averted – then it pays for itself many times over.
