Work smarter, not harder: SmartPulse Controller EVO II for baghouse optimisation
Increase baghouse performance with our add-on fabric filter controller
Compliance with your strict local and corporate emissions standards is top priority. But your baghouse isn’t just reducing your plant’s emissions – it’s also an energy user. And there’s definitely room for more efficiency in your system. With more refined fabric filter controls, you can achieve compliance, reduce energy consumption and increase the life of your filter bags – all while saving money.
Out with the old
Traditional fabric filter controllers typically only adjust to the differential pressure (dP) across the entire length of the filter. This means that the system maintains a constant dP without taking into account filter bag conditions and actual dust load from your mill. Your main fan is probably working a lot harder than it needs to.
As filter bags age, the amount of dP required to flow through them is usually higher. Traditional controllers don’t recognise changes in filter bag condition and won’t adjust accordingly. In short, your filter system is using a ‘one size fits all’ approach to cleaning that not only consumes a lot of energy, but also reduces your filter bag life. It’s time to change tack.
The SmartPulse Controller® EVO ll continuously analyses specific baghouse conditions, looking at the rate of change of differential pressure across the bag filter system, which is driven by the dust load from the plant.
It then adjusts fabric filter cleaning parameters in response to baghouse conditions to ensure that you are only ever doing the minimal required cleaning. This smarter way of cleaning reduces costly compressed air usage and extends filter bag life. And it’s an easy add-on to your existing SmartPulse Controller® or our other fabric filter controllers.
Reduce costs with data-driven predictive maintenance
- Extend filter bag life
- This next generation fabric filter controller recognises the change in differential pressure (dP) and adjusts according to the actual dust load from your plant. The filter bags endure less stress, therefore lasting longer.
- Reduces fan and compressed air consumption
- The intelligence of the SmartPulse Controller EVO II means that it is not filtering all the time. Instead, optimal filtering is achieved at a lower pressure, reducing the use of the fan and expensive compressed air in your baghouse.
- Continuous analysis for reduced downtime
- Constant monitoring of the baghouse system enables early detection of a failed filter bag, allowing you to act in time to prevent dust pass-through, costly emissions fines and production shutdowns. You can develop a long-term predictive maintenance strategy based on real-time insights.
- Remote filter monitoring
Online monitoring by our experienced bag filter system specialists allows you to receive specific preventive maintenance suggestions so you can plan well ahead for baghouse maintenance.
Costly plant shutdowns can be avoided through quick identification of a defective bag. Once located, the row it is in is turned off while the other rows continue to filter. Furthermore with AFT® SmarLife Online Condition Monitoring Services you can improve the performance of your filter.
- Simple installation
The SmartPulse Controller® EVO II’s plug-and-play system comes pre-wired, making it easy to install in just a few hours. Suitable for new baghouse installations as well as bag filter system upgrades.
The add-on filter controller that adds value to your baghouse
The Smart Pulse Controller (SPC) microprocessor technology controls all the equipment related to the baghouse, including the master controller, valve controller, hopper controller and fresh air damper controller. Compared to Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)-based systems, the SPC provides faster and more efficient detection and monitoring.
Differential pressure management
Through continuous analysis, the SmartPulse Controller® EVO II knows what the actual incoming dust load is and filters at optimal pressure, reducing wear and tear on the filter bags and cutting energy and compressed air costs.
Online monitoring by our experienced bag filter system specialists allows you to receive specific preventive maintenance suggestions, planning well ahead for baghouse maintenance. The SmartPulse Controller® EVO II has a proactive defective filter bag.
The SmartPulse Controller® EVO II comes pre-wired and can be customised to suit your bag filter system needs, for both new and existing systems.
Smart fabric filter technology
The combination of optimised design, improved mechanical construction, and advanced filter control results in reduced and easier maintenance, compared to other types of fabric filters on the market. The SmartBag coupled with the SmartPulse Controller EVO II meets the needs of modern-day cement mills.
