Sensor measures particulates in stack gas
Particulate CEM from FilterSense monitors effectiveness of baghouses, ESPs, and other dust collection systems.
FilterSense’s new particulate CEM (continuous emissions monitor) helps plants meet environmental regulations such as US-EPA MACT and other standards such as ASTM D22. These cover monitoring particulate emissions from fabric filter baghouses, cartridge type dust collectors, cyclones, and some types of ESPs (electrostatic precipitators). Particulate levels down to 0.1 mg/m3 can be monitored.
The company says its non-optical charge induction-sensing and protected-probe technologies can ensure reliable measurements in all types of tough environments including cement, power, steel, carbon black, asphalt, incinerators, lead smelters, chemical, and pharmaceutical dryers. The system features the latest in DSP technology for advanced signal analysis and automatic self checks to meet required EPA instrument standards. The device also offers lower-level monitoring and higher accuracy than many opacity meters with less maintenance and simpler installation.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
