Sintrol Snifter devices make dust collection monitoring easy. Once installed, Snifter’s automatic setup function will adjust itself to the dust flow conditions of your application and use alarm signals to notify you of bag breakages.

Snifter A2

Using the Sintrol DustTool software provided with the monitor, the Sintrol Snifter A2 has two independent alarm signals for applications that require more flexibility with its outputs. After completing the automatic setup function, the operator can adjust the alert and alarm level signals to meet the needs of the process. Being equipped with a USB connection, will allow easy access to the DustTool.

SNIFER mA+

For those that would like a continuous trend of the filter’s performance, the Sintrol Snifter mA+ provides a 4-20 mA output to identify relative trends. Using the Sintrol DustTool, the alarm signals can be adjusted to meet the operator’s needs to give indications of filter leaks or breakages.
