FilterSense – Beverly, MA USA
The company’s B-PAC series of Baghouse Performance Analyzers & Controllers feature 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; and 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 which 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.
Optional software provides enhanced process control features and further automation of EPA record keeping. A series of models for small cartridge collectors to large multi-compartment baghouses is available. The controllers are easy-to-use, high quality, heavy duty products designed for long-life in harsh process environments. A range of analog and digital I/O are available as well as all major filed buses including Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP, DeviceNet, Profibus and others.
