Donaldson has added three new features to its iCue connected filtration service, the company’s subscription-based service which remotely monitors a facility’s dust collection equipment and provides operational insights directly to end users.
The information can help manufacturers support efficient maintenance and operations, and automatically capture compliance and sustainability data. The three new features are the eighth release of the ongoing updates to the service since its launch 24 months ago. The three new features are:
- Fan energy monitoring allows users to assess the energy demands of a dust collector, with both fan power and daily energy use metrics. Reducing energy consumption is a key initiative for many manufacturers and dust collectors can be large consumers of energy.
- Bin level monitoring alerts users when dust collector bins are nearly full, preventing filter damage and mess from dust overflow.
- Pulse valve health monitoring has been expanded to work on collectors with up to three (from original support of one) manifolds to help detect compressed air problems or failed pulse valves that can affect filter life. This feature helps users prevent unplanned downtime and emergency repairs.
