The B-PAC series of Baghouse Performance Analyzers & Controllers from FilterSense.

FilterSense says that they have a combination of features to help powder processing, air pollution control and dust collection users meet regulatory compliance while simultaneously reducing operating costs and improving the process. The controllers tightly integrate control, sensing and high speed digital signal analysis to provide time and money saving diagnostics. This includes: the ability to detect/locate filter leaks weeks before emissions are visible; the ability to detect/locate failed pulse solenoids that can lead to plugged filters; and the ability to instantly detect/locate ruptured or frozen pulse-jet diaphragms.The controller also provides intelligent filter cleaning which extends filter life and lowers emissions while reducing compressed air use by 15-40% over traditional PLC programming and up to 90% over continuous cleaning.Optional software provides enhanced process control features and further automation of compliance record keeping. A series of models for small cartridge collectors to large multi-compartment baghouses are available. The controllers are easy-to-use, high quality, heavy duty products designed for long-life in harsh process environments. A range of analog and digital I/O is available as well as all major fieldbuses including Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP, DeviceNet and Profibus.
