Monitoring solutions for the dust collectors
Most industrial processes have dust collectors of some form or other, the most popular being filter bag houses. Very few of these are covered by regulation other than to have a broken bag detector to prevent nuisance dusts escaping and creating a local nuisance. The CODEL StakGard is a low cost Tribo-electric monitor that directly measures mass particulate concentration by sensing the frictional charge created when particles collide with a conductor. The advanced electronics of the StakGard detect this signal and present it to the operator via a unique modulating LED display.
Easy to install and maintain, the StakGard is suitable for ducts up to 2 metres in diameter and is suitable for types of dust collector.
If a calibrated reading in mg/m3 is required please refer to the DCEM 1001 above.
There is a particular problem of CO build up on Electrostatic precipitators (ESP) which can lead to an explosion in the ESP. The CODEL Model 1010 can monitor CO levels in ESP’s and give an alarm when levels reach a critical point.
