Burst Bag Detection
Monitoring filter performance reduces operating cost
Instantly identify compartment
Reduce maintenance time
Large filter plant perform a harsh duty, continuously removing particulates from final emissions to atmosphere. Strict environmental compliance demands that these filter plant operate on a continuous basis. Fabric filter bags will have a limited life span and will eventually require replacing. A failure of a filter bag due to prolonged abrasion and repeated blow-back will result in a rapid and large release of particulates to the atmosphere. identifying the problem bag and getting the replacement fitted rapidly can make the difference between a minior and a major emissions breach.
Focal-NET networked particulate monitoring systems can not only provide the traceability of continuous quality assurance of these important assets, but also the justification for extending the maintenance intervals between filter bag changes.
2 x Focal-NET TM6 networked particulate monitoring systems continuously measuring and logging the particulate output of 12 bag filter compartments. Output alarms are linked directly to plant DCS to give instantaneous warning of bag failures. Developed trends help the plant correlate filter performance and reduce down-time by being able to react more precisely for bag maintenance.
