Prevent downtime due to broken bags of your industrial dust collector and detect increases in dust levels in your air outlet with the Pentair Goyen Broken Bag Detector BBD6B using the latest tribo-electric technology.
The BBD6B utilises AC Coupled Triboelectric technology. As particles travel through the process they develop a charge. This charge is transferred as the particle passes or impacts the sensing element. The resulting current is amplified, filtered, rectified and further filtered looking only at the AC component, to give a linear representation of the concentration or mass flow rate of the particles in the gas stream.
The reason for measuring the AC component is that compared to the DC component the electronics are more sensitive. The AC signal is substantially less affected by influences such as amplifier noise and process parameters, which includes the build- up of process dust on the sensing rod. The BBD6B remote Active Head totally filters out any 50 Hz or 60 Hz frequencies related to mains supply. The amplified signal is then sent via data cable to Control Unit for further processing and display.
Pentair Goyen’s BBD6B Broken Bag Detector is used around the world to measure particle concentrations in various outlet gases and air streams aiming to control the intactness of filter bags within the industrial dust collector and improve indoor air quality in workplaces.
