Many manufacturing facilities require consistent air-quality monitoring, as excessive dust leads to maintenance issues that cause wasteful downtime and expense. One great solution for this application is Auburn Systems’ line of baghouse control systems, available from Firing Industries. These systems include baghouse diagnostics and intelligent cleaning systems to help plants identify issues and adjust cleaning cycles.
Baghouse control systems by Auburn have many essential benefits, such as increases in efficiency, lower operating expenses, and complete compliance solutions.
A way to reduce maintenance
Auburn baghouse control systems help to reduce maintenance time and maintain productivity with actionable diagnostics, which use predictive monitoring capabilities to notify organizations of impending failures at the first sign. This way, a company can plan repairs in advance, at a convenient time, before the problem gets worse. With baghouse diagnostics, facility operators can locate failing filter media weeks before emission levels become critical, avoid plugged filters and other failures, and detect frozen or ruptured pulse diaphragms.
With intelligent cleaning systems, plant operators can adjust baghouse cleaning cycles automatically, based on differential pressure. This allows an organization to clean only when the baghouse is outside the designated differential pressure, which reduces the filter-media wear and use of compressed air that come with traditional cleaning methods. Auburn systems can lower compressed-air use by up to 40 per cent and extend filter-media life by up to 60 per cent in the long run.
Another advantage of these systems is their ability to comply with environmental regulations, due to the higher sensitivity of triboelectric monitoring over emissions monitoring. With particulate monitoring, facilities can detect impending filter leaks early on, trigger early-warning and critical alarms, and extend filter-media life by conducting replacements only when necessary.
In these ways, Auburn baghouse controls help organizations reduce maintenance costs significantly and eliminate unplanned downtime.
