Smarter Cleaning. Longer Bag Life.

Far too often, shortened bag life is accepted as the norm. Cleaning processes, including start-up and shut-down practices can heavily influence bag life as well as increase operating and maintenance costs. Smarter cleaning can prolong bag life and reduce compartmental and overall differential pressure, derates, and operational costs by decreasing pressure and cleaning energy.

Both under-cleaning and over-cleaning can have detrimental effects on bag life, however bag cleaning systems are not often adaptable enough to provide the best opportunity for full bag life. Blinded bags can result from over-cleaning, allowing the small particles to get embedded in the weaves of the fabric. Under-cleaning can needlessly increase differential pressure and also result in the need to repetitively clean bags which can stretch out the fabric. It is important to keep in mind that filtering does not wear out the bags, cleaning energy wears out bags.

Intelligent Cleaning “ The Total System Approach

Neundorfer provides a total system approach for optimizing baghouses. By monitoring and integrating baghouse operations, the dusts collectors will capture pollutants more effectively, reducing energy consumption and achieving maximum filter bag life. This is important as owners are trying to control operational and maintenance costs, increase particulate capture, maximize sorbent usage and get more operational flexibility.

Our approach starts with understanding the process conditions and equipment constraints. We use our extensive hands-on field experience, predictive modeling, and expertise in software design and application to develop an intelligent system that best meets your needs. Our customized approach, integrates with all DCS or PLC control systems for baghouses, and dynamically optimizes baghouse cleaning using multiple feedback parameters, as well as providing significant energy savings along with in-depth diagnostic and prognostic insight.

Justifying Controls with Opacity-Driven Energy Optimization

Paper Mill Controls Upgrade

At a paper mill in New England, a long-delayed controls upgrade project was cost-justified within eight months of completion. The improved performance and energy savings from an ESP controls project saved the mill an average of $8,000 per month. ...
