Dust monitors with hazardous location approvals

November 6, 2020   Don Horne


The DustAlarm ES and DustTrend ES, Monitor Technologies’ trusty series of broken bag detectors and dust emission trend monitoring systems, are now available with hazardous location approvals.

Plus, they have intrinsically safe probes for ultimate hazardous location protection. These monitors provide excellent repeatability that is not affected by variations in relative humidity, process temperature or pressure.

They use proven AC Triboelectric technology with advanced algorithms to filter out noise and provide the most accurate dust measurement. The monitors have an easy auto set-up function that is activated by pressing a button to automatically configure parameters/alarms. They contain externally viewable bi-colour LED indication on ordinary location units.

These units are ideal for monitoring the level of dust emission in dust collection system exhausts, etc.

They help anywhere it is critical to safety, maintenance, equipment operation, plant efficiency (energy-savings), employee welfare and the environment. The monitors can be connected with the free DustConfig software to set custom alarm points, view live activity within the duct, or review data history for up to a 24-hour period.

The DustTrend ES dust emission trend monitor adds the ability to provide continuous trend measurements that allows a plant operator to identify changes in dust emission levels and optimize the facility’s filtration / dust collection system. It also provides 4-20mA analog output and/or enhanced Modbus(RS-485) output.
