The FILTERSENSE Particulate CEM meets the standards established by various environmental agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s MACT standard, other standards such as ASTM D22 for monitoring particulate emissions from fabric filter baghouses, cartridge type dust collectors, cyclones and some ESPs (electrostatic precipitators.)
Particulate levels down to at least 0.1mg/m3 can be monitored. According to FilterSense, its non-optical charge induction-sensing and protected-probe technologies will ensure reliable measurements in all types of tough environments, including steel melt shops, cement plants, power plants, carbon black and asphalt plants, incinerators, lead smelters, chemical refineries, and pharmaceutical dryers. The system features the latest in digital signal processing (DSP) technology for advanced signal analysis, and it automatically self-checks to meet a facility’s specifically required EPA instruments standards. The device is also stated to offer lower level monitoring and higher accuracy than opacity meters with less maintenance and a simpler installation.
