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
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
