DustAlarm(R) Detects Filter Leaks or Failures In Dust Collection Systems
Elburn, IL - Monitor Technologies' DustAlarm(R) dust monitor or "broken bag" detector is designed to detect filter failures and leaking filters in the exhaust ducts of bag houses, cartridge collectors, cyclones and other dust collection systems containing filters which may break or wear out with time.
The DustAlarm broken bag detector uses triboelectric technology to continuously monitor the level of dust emission in dust collection system exhausts. Triboelectric measurement has been used for years to detect filter failures in bag houses. The triboelectric effect, also know as “particle impingement” or “frictional electrification”, occurs when one material impacts or rubs another causing a charge transfer. When an increase in emission level exceeds the user adjusted setting an alarm is triggered as indicated by the unit's output relay changing state. The DustAlarm has a unique extended insulator to guard against material build-up problems, as well as, a unique quick-disconnect mounting coupling to provide quick and easy installation and maintenance when needed.

The QuantiMass in-line mass flow sensor measures the flow of quantities in pneumatic conveying & free-falling processes. The sensor is based on the latest Microwave Doppler Effect technology and provides fast, in-line / on-line measuring without the use of weight scales.
The sturdy, non-intrusive design of the sensor minimizes maintenance. In addition, the compact size of the sensor makes for easy installation into existing processes. Suitable for powders, dust, pellets, and granular up to 0.75 inch (2cm).
Ultra Series-Includes controller
PRO Series-Includes transmitter
A practical application for the QuantiMass would be to monitor material flow rates to verify blending mixture ratios.
Principle of Operation:
The QuantiMass Mass Flow Measurement Sensor / Meter is designed with the latest microwave technology and is used to continuously quantify the flow of powders & solids being conveyed in metallic pipes. The QuantiMass is based on technology that has been developed and proven over several years. The measurement process of the sensor is centered on the Doppler effect. The mass flow-rate is determined by evaluating the frequency and amplitude changes during the measurement process. Particles at rest, such as deposits, do not influence the measurement. All powders, dust, pellets and granules can be measured reproducibly, up to the size of 0.75 inch (2cm). The QuantiMass sensor is suitable for continuous in-line / on-line measurements in pneumatic conveying or in free-fall pipelines.
