Advanced Controllers for Dust Collectors

Source: FARR Air Pollution Control
Determinator® Control
The Farr APC Determinator dust collector interface brings dust and fume control into the 21st century. This highly advanced electronic system remotely oversees up to 100 dust collectors in your plant, continuously monitoring their performance and accurately troubleshooting any problems that might occur.

Imagine being able to sit at your desk and receive an alarm from your computer at the first sign of a malfunction or service alert. You can quickly determine whether a hopper needs to be emptied or filter elements require changeout. With a keystroke, you can adjust the operational pressure drop of a dust collector or alter the emissions point at which a broken bag detector sounds an alarm. The Determinator does all this, and more

NETWORKS ALL YOUR DUST COLLECTION UNITS provides simultaneous remote monitoring of up to 100 pulse jet baghouse or cartridge collectors. No other unit can offer more comprehensive monitoring capabilities!

PROVIDES AUTOMATIC ALARMING of fault conditions at trigger points predetermined by the user, utilizing a time and date stamp to record the event.

IDENTIFIES THE DUST COLLECTOR AFFECTED AND THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM whenever an alarm sounds. The Determinator's memory system can store records of the last 100 alarms per collector.

AUTOMATICALLY RECORDS DATA on emissions, pressure drop, temperature, compressed air pressure, airflow and other conditions. The Determinator stores hourly averages of all these conditions for two weeks. Daily averages are stored for one year. This provides a complete downloadable performance history of your system.

REDUCES OPERATING COST through precise control of the cleaning mechanism in your collectors. The Determinator ensures that each cleaning system pulses only when required—thereby reducing compressed air usage and extending bag or cartridge life.

ALSO REDUCES EMISSIONS through controlled pulsing and early broken bag detection.

EASILY CONNECTS TO PCs via RS232 serial port hook-up.
