FilterSense has released Particulate Sensors for blower protection.
The sensors are rugged, sensitive and require very little maintenance. They are designed to prevent unforeseen downtime and equipment repairs, which can be costly, through reliable real time protection.
The sensors are ideal solutions for protecting blowers, turbines and vacuum pumps in powder conveying, gas processing and heat recovery applications, and have already been used in the flyash conveying industry to reliably detect abrasive coal dust where traditional optical and triboelectric monitors have been unsuccessful. Additional applications include turbine protection in top gas recovery at steel plants and detecting condensation in gas processing applications.
Sensor communications include 4-20mA, Modbus and Ethernet while a display and alarm relay contacts provide local interface.
There is no shortage of challenges when it comes to any cement silo cleanout project. Mole•Master Services Corporation was contracted to resolve a number of issues at a large cement producer in northeastern Missouri, US.
