DC/AC Electrostatic Technology Enhances Detection of Baghouse Emissions
Particulate monitoring is a critical factor for manufacturing plants where industrial pollutants are problematic. Many dusts are hazardous or combustible, and those operations generating or handling dusts can require special efforts to monitor and minimize emissions in these areas.
This schematic illustrates the new, unified DC/AC platform called TRIBO.dsp, which represents the latest major technology advancement introduced by Auburn Systems.
As dust particles collide with, or closely pass by a probe, charge transfers occur. Tribo.dsp series products detect the signal created by the changes in particulate concentration, as in the onset of a bag leak or an increase or decrease in flow. Unlike monitors that use only the DC impaction or only the AC induction signals, thereby using only a portion of the complete electrostatic signal, TRIBO.dsp unified U3000 series combines the benefits of each method. They can activate operational functions such as alarms and relays or can generate continuous 4-20 mA or digital signals for trending and recording purposes.
