Dust filter damage monitoring on clean gas site - Case Study
Courtesy of ENVEA
Waste incineration plant (Southwest Germany)
What measuring process was used previously:
There was no monitoring system available for the limestone silos.
Increased dust concentration, due to filter leakages, used to be noticed at quite a late state because only sporadic sight checks were carried out.
With the installation of 'Dusty', holes in the filter system are noticeable much more immediately and environmental pollution can be avoided.

Level and limit level detection with ProGap - Case Study
ApplicationDuring the process of mining gypsum in a stone quarry, gypsum rock is transported via a series of conveyor belts to the production line. Certain critical conveyors are located remotely from the production line and therefore not visible and suspect to blockages.The customer wants to avoid material overfl ows and blockages between the conveyor belts and a transition chute. Because of the size of the material (lumps of rock) the client has experienced high percentage material blockages in the chutes,...
Filter damage monitoring in clean gas side - Case Study
ApplicationA coffee producer fi nishes coffee beans. During the handling process the beans are cleaned with water inside a tank.After cleaning, the beans are dried in another tank with heat. The moist air that results from this process is extracted by a vacuum, fi ltered and returned to the heat exchanger.The cleaning of the exhaust air is done by fi lter hoses. Thereby air is pressed through fabric hoses to fi lter existing dust particles. On the clean gas side of this fi lter the dust content should be monitored...
Dust concentration measurement with ProSens - Case Study
ApplicationA food manufacturer refi nes dairy products.The dust-laden exhaust air created during the manufacturing process is extracted by suction and cleaned by industrial fi lter systems. With increasing abrasion of the fi lter elements, the dust content in the exhaust air may rise and lead to increased environmental pollution. The continuous dust measurement (mg/m3) is also regulated for this process. This offi cial regulation is fulfi lled by the plant operator with the installation of a calibrateable,...
Emissions monitoring according to QAL1 - Case Study
ApplicationA chemicals company produces boron carbide from the raw materials boric oxide and carbon. Boron carbide powder is used for sintering and hot pressing.In other applications boron carbide is used as fi ller material for plastics, metals and concrete or, when used as a material component, increases the wear resistance of electrodes. The production process takes place in an arc furnace at temperatures of 2400 °C.To monitor limit values and to comply with legal requirements a continuous measurement of...
Screen break detection with Paddy - Case Study
ApplicationIn many industrial processes, the control of particle sizing by the use of mechanical screening is important to ensure correct material sizing. Damage to the screen will lead to large particles fl owing through, potentially leading to large amounts of incorrectly sized product. Associated costs of waste product, rework and product recall can be expensive for the manufacturer.The off-line laboratory analysis of grain size in a material fl ow is timeconsuming and not suitable for the detection of a sieve...
Monitoring of garbage chutes - Case Study
ApplicationWaste recycling in incineration plants starts with the delivery and incineration of waste. The waste reaches the combustion chamber via a falling chute, which is followed by a hydraulic feed device. To guarantee a constant incineration process, the falling chute has to be fi lled constantly. The „high“ and „low“ limit values should be detected and alarmed. The plant operator looks for a device, that measures the point level completely over the whole cross section. Vibration...
Dust monitoring with AirSafe - Case Study
ApplicationA waste incineration plant burns waste. A fi nal product of this incineration process is fi lter dust, which is stored in silos before being evacuated.For the ambient air monitoring of the silos, convey lines and connected rooms, the plant manager looked for a maintenance-free way to detect dust leaks and malfunctions.Optical techniques were not considered because of the degree of dust contamination in this part of the plant and the therefore expected cleaning and maintenance effort.The monitoring...
Coal fired power plant - humidity measurement during briquetting process - Case Study
Our subsidiary SWR Engineering has launched the M-Sens 2 sensor for the continuous measurement of humidity on solids of all kinds. It can ideally be used, for example in container outlets, conveyor belts, conveyor screws, mixers and conveyor dryers... Application An operator of a coal fired power plant uses brown coal for the firing and therefore the production of energy. In an other part of the plant brown coal is refined and processed to briquettes and coal dust. For the processing of brown coal into...
BTEX monitor, equal performances to laboratory chromatographs
Environnement S.A leveraged its technical leadership in this field with an extensive experience, being one of the first companies creating its first BTEX analyser almost 20 years ago. The VOC72M third generation of the series is, up to now, the most compact and fully automated analyser on the market, self-contained and newly designed for providing equal performance to the laboratory chromatographs. Based on gas chromatography (GC) for the separation of the measured compounds coupled with a photo-ionisation...
Practical Implementation of EN-14181in Particulate Monitoring - Case Study
Introduction This case study summarises the results of implementing particulate monitoring according to EN-14181 in a municipal incinerator operated by SUA in Teesside, UK, with a ProScatter M type particulate instrument (Model PCME QAL 181). It also provides a comparison of results for monitoring the same stack with an ElectroDynamic particulate instrument (Model PCME QAL 991). This case study is specifically relevant to operators of Municipal Waste Incineration plant using bagfilter type arrestment plant, but...
The Use of Particulate Emission Monitors to Support Arrestment Plant Operation and Upkeep
The operation of filtration type arrestment plant can be optimised by the effective use of Particulate Emission Monitors (eg Filter Leak Monitors and Filter Performance Monitors).Particulate Emission Monitors are installed throughout the broad spectrum of industrial processes to satisfy regulations (IPPC, Part B Guidance Notes, WID and LCPD) for emission limit enforcement. In addition, where processes are controlled with arrestment plant, these instruments also serve to provide feedback on the operation and...
Selection of Particulate Monitors
The installation and operation of continuous particulate emission monitors in industrial processes has become well developed and common practice in industrial stacks and ducts over the past 30 years reflecting regulatory monitoring requirements. It supports requirements originating from LAPPC (Local Air Pollution Prevention and Control), IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control), WID (Waste Incineration Directive) and LCPD (Large Combustion Plant Directive) legislation.This guide provides and up to date...
