LEAK LOCATE 660


The LEAK LOCATE 660 is a dust emission monitoring system designed specifically to monitor emissions from multiple outlet filter-type arrestment plant. The system incorporates a digital network of 4 to 32 sensors installed in individual chambers or compartments of bagfilter, ceramic or cartridge filter type arrestment plant, with an advanced central control unit for real-time graphical display, alarming and historical data logging. By helping to identify the location of leaking or faulty bags in specific chambers or compartments, the system pre-warns of failing or faulty bag media before the event, providing operators with greater control to reduce downtime and costs. The instruments use the same technology as in PCME's Continuous Emissions Monitors (CEMS) approved by MCERTS and TUV.

This patented ElectroDynamic Probe Electrification technology extracts a specific frequency band from the induced AC current signature and filters out the DC current caused by particle collisions. The technology outperforms conventional DC triboelectric systems and alternative AC systems by extending the velocity range over which the instrument has no cross sensitivity to changing velocity, and is unaffected by contamination of the sensor rod eliminating concerns of signal drift.

  • Graphical diagnostic screens for real-time assessment of relative compartment/chamber efficiency, with pulse logger for historical analysis
  • PC-ME Dust Tools PC software option with 'Predict' functionality for enhanced broken bag detection and location
  • PLUS control unit for sensor networking (up to 32 sensor channels) via industry standard MODBUS, multiple inputs for external devices (e.g. for Temp and O2 normalisation)

The LEAK LOCATE 660 supersedes the DA660, an instrument proven in demanding CEM applications worldwide.
