Four great reasons to invest in an Auburn particulate monitor

Firing Industries is a proud provider of triboelectric monitoring solutions by Auburn Systems. When a business purchases a management system, return on investment (ROI) is a key deciding factor. With an Auburn particulate monitor, ROI calculation may be more complex, especially when considering detectors at the compartment and row levels or investing in baghouse control systems. Below are the four primary benefits of triboelectric monitoring of PM emissions with Auburn.

Higher savings and longer life

First, business get improved emissions compliance with an Auburn system. These days, compliance is a serious issue that manufacturers must recognize; it often becomes an issue directly important to profitability in the modern regulatory environment, with its effect on operations, social responsibility, reputation, and production. Triboelectric monitoring offers great accuracy and detection sensitivity, and its faster response time gives users earlier warning of issues.

The second major benefit of an Auburn particulate monitor from Firing Industries is easier compliance reporting. Collection, storage, processing, and transmission of monitoring of information from emission sources consume substantial resources. Some monitoring methods require regular inspections by certified personnel, which uses up a lot of working hours. But triboelectric systems take data readings in real time, and these data can be interfaced with plant computers directly to record and process them into an easy-to-export format.

Another key advantage is maintenance savings. A particulate monitor requires relatively little ongoing maintenance, as opposed to opacity meters, which need periodic calibration, plus complete rebuilds after several years of use. Calibration and rebuilds cost thousands of dollars and require extensive documentation each time. Triboelectric systems also improve general maintenance with additional useful data; for instance, their high detection capability helps them identify the exact positions of leaks. The ability to trend data helps to predict when filter sets will need to be replaced.

Finally, users get extended filter life. Filter replacement is expensive, so optimizing their use directly affects operating costs, plus expenses associated with reliability and downtime. Facilities can use their triboelectric emissions data to determine maximum useful filter life.
