Engineered solution designed to address the excessive dusting in engines and gas turbines
Minor investment cost avoiding major damages.
Efficient use of equipment and early detection of malfunction that results in overall productivity optimization.
Increased asset utilization
Preemptively servicing equipment before problems occur thus increasing overall equipment lifetime.
Avoiding costly unplanned downtime by providing an effective mechanism for early warning.
Simple and sturdy
DustGuard is simple and rugged, made to operate in industrial environments.
Easy and quick installation
DustGuard is easy to install and configure, without any modification to your plant infrastructure.
The main objective of DustGuard is to guard gas turbines and engines against undesired dust.
Fields of Application
Mining trucks & mining equipment are another frequent victims of the excessive dust consumption. Truck engines face a lot of challenges in sandy and dusty environments, with dust ingress being one of them which results in internal combustion engine component damage. It is important to be able to track engine`s operation and avoid damaging effects of dust particles on major hardware.
When a gas turbine goes down, this greatly affects the production cycle and the company has to tolerate fiancée loss. Knowing what can go wrong and how to anticipate turbine failures can help to avoid a difficult unplanned outage. With the predictive maintenance, the maintenance team can keep close eyes on the possible future failures in the machine and take necessary steps to avoid it.
RECIPROCATING DIESEL AND GAS ENGINES
The diesel engine is the heart of the heavy construction equipment and replacement costs are very high. Ingress of dust due to leaky air intake systems shreds the components in short order. Frequently, this leads to emergency stops, due to local air conditions and/or air filter clogging or failure.
One of the distinguishing characteristics of the DustGuard is its algorithm. The principle of converting measured signal into mass concentration values is a one-of-a-kind feature of DustGuard.
Real-time dust classification
DustGuard allows the user to test four different air samples in real-time. This is being achieved by the use of 5 solenoid valves and implementation of laser-scattering principle.
