Most industrial engineers associate triboelectric detection with emissions control.  And it’s a powerful tool for improving baghouse efficiency in a number of ways.

It’s less commonly recognized as a process management tool for flow control.  Typically it’s used as a flow/no flow detector.

There’s another capability of triboelectric that’s often overlooked - and it’s a simple and effective solution for some very challenging process control applications.

Triboelectric detection can measure particle velocity - and unlike other velocity monitors which can’t perform in a dusty air stream, this is actual particle velocity, not just air velocity.

That capability opens up a wide new range of process control insights for any process which moves particles, or non-conductive liquids through a tube or pipe.

The most obvious is a range of applications around product damage.  For instance, it’s now possible to optimize the conveying speed of easily broken product by measuring the particle velocity.  It’s also possible to observe velocity of a process where the impact of product buildup can reduce product flow - and even identify where in a system the buildup is occurring for quick proactive maintenance.

We also see applications with abrasive products which can be efficiently ml oved at a certain rate without excessive wear on components - but increase that speed and wear & tear dramatically increase maintenance costs.

We know there are others - but you know what they are.  If you’ve got process control challenges with flowing particulate product, give us a call.  We’ll gladly brainstorm with you to understand whether velocity would be helpful as a direct or indirect diagnostic indicator for your situation.

Process control applications for particle velocity monitoring

Hi, I’m Ron Dechene, founder and CEO of Auburn Systems.  I also led the team that pioneered the use of triboelectric detection for environmental monitoring and personally received a number of patents related to various applications of tribo monitoring.

I’d like to quickly share my perspective on the value  that Auburn provides the companies that use our technology.  Normally we focus on our customer requirements, but a moment of reflection will help you understand what guides our inventions and innovation roadmap.

We’re proud of the fact that we were first in so many areas.  And we’re proud of our many patents and the thousands of installations of Auburn detectors around the world.  And we’re especially proud of our role in helping advanced manufacturers make the world a cleaner place.

But what we’re most proud of is the fact that we continue to pioneer the best, most accurate and most reliable triboelectric instruments in the world.  We’re relentless in our investment and determination to not only improve our solution for existing applications, but to apply our unique understanding of triboelectric technology to big, vexing, industrial problems.

Sometimes I’m asked if I’m tired of others copying our technology, challenging our technical claims or misrepresenting our capabilities in competitive situations.  And honestly, every once in a while someone mentions something that makes me shake my head.  But as long as the industry is worried about chasing us, that means we’re worried about delivering new solutions to industry - consistently stretching.

Innovations like our recent award winning unified AC & DC signal processing are where we’re focused.

So give us your wish list - we were first, but we know that doesn’t matter today.  That’s why we’re determined to remain the best, by helping you be better in your business.

Auburns Systems - relentless particulate monitoring R&D

When you stop to think about the fundamental importance of cement to everything we do, it’s really eye opening.  Cement really is one of the building blocks of modern society!

And at Auburn Systems we’re proud to be one of the building blocks of modern cement manufacturing.

Many people naturally think of us for our triboelectric bag leak detectors often used in cement dust collection systems.  But we’re actually embedded in a number of places throughout a typical cement plant.

First, broken bag detection is critically important in cement plant emissions control.  Auburn’s digital signal processing capability ensures compliance with air permit requirements, but it also provides predictive maintenance and early warning capability to allow maintenance teams to respond before expensive excursions occur. In some instances we have eliminated the need for plants to continue with their Method 22 visual inspections just by installing a simple broken bag detector.

Second, similar detection technology fulfills several key flow control applications in a cement plant.  Triboelectric offers a low head-room alternative to impact flow meters to monitor product flow on the separator reject air slide.

We also monitor the flow of pulverized coal into the kiln.  By precisely controlling the flow, we’re able to help cement plants improve quality, reduce emissions and dramatically reduce costs and operational fluctuation.

Third, Auburn helps plants monitor ambient, or fugitive dust in the work place.  Although some dust is unavoidable, excess buildup creates health, emissions and potential safety concerns - even potential factory explosions.  So consistent, simple, reliable monitoring is important to ensure that fugitive dust is within acceptable limits.

So whether you look at it as top to bottom or start to finish, Auburn’s engineered solutions for triboelectric particulate monitoring are designed to optimize critical functions in the demanding environment of a cement plant.

Cement’s important to all of us….and Auburn’s helping produce it efficiently, safely and economically.
