Carbon Black

The development of FilterSense’s unique and field proven particulate sensing technology has its origins in the carbon black industry of the 1990’s. The very first field trial of FilterSense’s induction particulate sensing method was in the outlet of a baghouse on a carbon black processing plant.

While carbon black remains a challenging application due to the tenacious adherence and highly conductive nature of the material, FilterSense particulate monitors have proven to be the most reliable technology available for carbon black applications, including paint/pigment, reinforcement, tire, absorbent, and printer toner applications.

Today, FilterSense is providing carbon black facilities with reliable instruments, intelligent controls, and regulatory compliance consultation to reduce emissions, minimize emergency downtime, and increase plant profitability.

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.
