SafeSensor is RoboVent's advanced particulate-monitoring device that can detect leaks past the filters. If one should occur, SafeSensor will shut down the equipment, trigger an alarm and set off a strobe light.
Protect Employees from Hazardous Dust Collector Leaks
Leaks may occur in a dust collector if filters are torn or worn. Pinhole leaks and microtears can develop in filter media, especially when collecting dust that is highly abrasive. When this happens, dust and fumes may escape past the filter chamber and out the exhaust end of your dust collector. This can reintroduce dangerous dust and fumes back into the facility or into the atmosphere, putting your facility out of compliance with worker safety or environmental regulations. The problem may not be obvious by sight or smell, especially for weld fume and other fine particulate.
The SafeSensor particulate monitor was developed to avoid these problems. The particulate monitor is placed past the filters to monitor the outgoing air for smoke, dust and fumes. If a leak should occur, SafeSensor shuts down the equipment and triggers an alarm so maintenance can take care of the
problem right away.
