Courtesy:Yokogawa Corporation of America’s DT450G dust monitor is designed to detect the qualitative level of dust or particulate matter by working off of the inductive electrification principle. This probe provides a highly sensitive measurement and is capable of detecting particles as small as 0.3 µm. The signal generated by these particles is processed by advanced noise filtering algorithms resulting in a highly accurate dust measurement.

The DT450G is designed for trend monitoring on the outlet of filters or cyclones to gauge performance and for indicating the level of change for particulate emissions. Trend level changes can be used to adjust process settings such as electrostatic precipitator charge level or to help identify filtration problems such as bag filter breakage.

Features include a measurement range that can be set through a one-touch operation in response to process conditions. They can be used in applications with process temperatures up to 250°C (482°F) and pressures up to 200 kPa (29 psi).
