PCME LEAK LOCATE 320 PLUS - Multi-Compartment Baghouse Monitoring System

Altech PCME is proud to introduce the PCME LEAK LOCATE 320 PLUS.
The PCME LEAK LOCATE 320 PLUS is a networked, multi-compartment baghouse monitoring system providing remote observation of the condition of bag and cartridge filters. An ElectroDynamic™ sensor is installed in the outlet of each compartment to monitor dust emission levels.
The system is supported by the PC-ME DUST TOOLS software package for PCs, with advanced features for monitoring emission trends and identifying failing or broken bags. For on-line cleaned bag filters the specific bag row containing leaking bags can be located.
The LEAK LOCATE 320 PLUS is a valuable filter maintenance tool:
• Giving advance warning of filter deterioration
• Significant savings in spares, maintenance time, energy costs, and lost production time
• Reducing the likelihood of large-scale emission events.
The sensors use PCME’s unique and patented ElectroDynamic™ Probe Electrification technology. Particulates in the airstream interact with the sensing rod to induce a charge signature. The sensor electronically filters the resulting signal to reject signals outside a defined frequency range, making it less susceptible to changes in particle velocity and eliminating the effect of any particulate contamination on the sensing rod (unlike Triboelectric dust monitors which suffer from sensor contamination and velocity issues).
