Web-Based System for Dust Collection Diagnostics

Camfil Air Pollution Control  announces a web-based system for dust collection diagnostics. The new GoldLink system provides around-the-clock access to dust collection operations by monitoring four preset analog inputs and 16 preset digital inputs, says the company. It is designed for facilities that do not have building management systems and is ideal for companies with many remote dust collectors, 24/7 operating schedules, sensitive applications and/or the need to generate reports for OSHA, the EPA or other regulatory bodies, adds Camfil. The GoldLink unit is shipped preprogrammed and is installed and connected to the Internet, which creates a tunnel for data to be sent to the Camfil server. Data is packaged in a usable format that allows customers and other authorized personnel to monitor the health of their filtration systems via website. Points monitored include filter pressure drop, airflow velocity, emissions, fan and VFD run status, explosion protection devices and more. GoldLink sends messages directly to the user when the devices reach critical set points to ensure that preventive maintenance can be performed when needed.  It will also send messages if an accident or an emergency occurs. The GoldLink home page displays graphical information on dust collection operations, with the ability to support multiple dust collectors and users. Easy-to-print reports can be generated at any desired frequency. The GoldLink system is designed for use with any Camfil integrated control panel and may be retrofitted onto existing dust collection systems. It is purchased on a one-time cost basis with no monthly service fees.
