Particulate Continuous Emissions Monitor

July 11, 2012

The Particulate Continuous Emissions Monitor (CEM) from FilterSense meets environmental regulations such as US-EPA MACT and other standards such as ASTM D22 for monitoring particulate emissions from fabric filter baghouses, cartridge type dust collectors, cyclones and some electrostatic precipitators (ESPs). Particulate levels down to at least 0.1mg/m3 can be monitored. The company’s non-optical charge induction-sensing and protected-probe technologies are said to ensure reliable measurements in all types of tough environments including cement, power, steel, carbon black, asphalt plants, incinerators, lead smelters and chemical and pharmaceutical dryers. The system features the latest in DSP technology for advanced signal analysis and automatic self checks to meet required EPA instruments standards. The Particulate CEM also offers lower level monitoring and higher accuracy than opacity meters with less maintenance and a simpler installation.
