From the crushing stage, through the clarification and calcination process, to anode baking, electrolytic reduction, smelting, casting, rolling, and coating processes, FilterSense provides filtration improvement and compliance solutions for the Aluminum Industry.

US-EPA Secondary Aluminum MACT regulation requires continuous particulate monitoring of fabric filter baghouses and other parametric monitoring. FilterSense has the products, services, knowledge, and experience to deliver unmatched solutions for Aluminum MACT compliance.

Optimization and control of multi-compartment baghouses is a focal point of our experience in the aluminum industry. Intelligent pressure control (IntelliPULSE™) technology minimizes pulse rates and extends filter life, while B-PAC diagnostics proactively detect and locate filter leaks, failed solenoids, and ruptured pulse diaphragms.

FilterSense technology is uniquely focused on proactive/preventive monitoring. Our products are designed to not just detect or control, but to holistically improve plant operations and reduce costs.

Particulate Monitoring Solutions

Continuous Particulate Monitoring Ensure regulatory compliance (US-EPA, OSHA, MOE, & More). Output in Mass Units (mg/m³)

Leak Analysis & Location Identify filter leaks weeks before visual emissions. Precisely locate filter leaks by row. Proactively reduce emergency downtime.

Basic Leak / Broken Bag Detection Meet BLDS (Bag Leak Detection System) requirements and reliably identify filter leaks as small as 6mm diameter.

Baghouse Control Solutions

Baghouse Diagnostics Preventive process and system diagnostics allow users to identify filter condition, failed solenoids, failed and frozen pulse diaphragm valves, system health and more.

Intelligent DP Control Intelligent filter cleaning control maintains baghouse DP within 0.1. InWC to reduce pulse rates up to 90% for considerable compressed air savings. Easily set cleaning parameters, pulsing sequence and patterns.

Baghouse Controls Centralized visualization and control of many baghouse process variables (hopper level, manual dampers, fan control, sonic horns, solenoid firing, DP, air flow, and MORE).

Process & Equipment Solutions

Downstream Equipment Protection Identify carryover and prevent damage to critical equipment and processes.

Powder Processing Verify optimum capture of valuable product & prevent product loss.

Powder Flow & Injection Verify powder injection/flow and confirm downstream eciency and proper process control.
