Dust Collector Diagnostics

March 21, 2012

The B-PAC series of baghouse performance analyzers and controllers offer a combination of features to help dust collector operators reducing operating costs, improving the process, and meet EPA or OSHA compliance simultaneously. The controllers tightly integrate control, sensing, and signal analysis to provide time- and money-saving diagnostics including: the ability to detect/locate filter leaks weeks before emissions are visible; the ability to detect/locate failed pulse solenoids that can lead to plugged filters; the ability to instantly detect/locate ruptured or frozen pulse-jet diaphragms where one undetected rupture can cost $1K of compressed air in one week. The controller also provides intelligent filter cleaning that extends filter life and lowers emissions while reducing compressed air use by 15-40% over traditional PLC programming and up to 90% over continuous cleaning.
