Snifter S500

The Sintrol S500 series is the most sensitive series of dust monitors ever. The new product line maintains the reliability and robustness of the S300 series and possesses the capability of measuring fugitive dust levels as low as 0.01 mg/m³.

Equipped with a 4–20 mA analog signal output and RS485 interface, S500 is used for trend monitoring. It is installed downstream from a baghouse, cyclone, dryer or other dust collection system to monitor filter performance as well as particulate emissions. It can also be used for process control in applications where the dust levels need to follow designated limits. S500 is designed for use in any process fitted with bag, ceramic, cartridge filters or cyclones where indicative (qualitative) monitoring is required.

With three SPST relays and two independent signal outputs the S500s are also used to detect filter deterioration, blockage or breakage. The alarms can be used for process control (as an ON-OFF system) in flow – no flow situations in bulk solids handling and pneumatic transport applications. Very fast response time, a typical characteristic of these monitors, enables early detection and prevention of expensive product loss to the environment.
