Better baghouse control
The NESHAP regulations on particulate emissions, as set out by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), have encouraged domestic cement producers to convert their baghouses and upgrade the accompanying control systems. Thanks to its baghouse control upgrade, Buzzi Unicem USA has benefitted from improved baghouse performance as plant staff can now prevent rather than react to filter operation issues.

Cement producers in the US face the challenge of meeting EPA dust control regulations without interrupting production, while striving to improve profitability in a competitive cement market. Typical sensors and controls for baghouses are often basic and do not provide intelligent control or preventive insight into the process. Time-consuming manual inspection of filters and baghouse components often becomes necessary, which can require a shutdown or extended outage.
