SSAB has upgraded the existing ITK filter with ITK Envifronts intelligent control system CPFE. With the control system, the filter status and cleaning cycles are checked using patented algorithms. SSAB reduces both compressed air consumption and wear of filter media providing longer life times.
CPFE uses true filtration resistance control. With the help of patented algorithms and embedded sensors, CPFE can calculate the actual filter resistance and control the compressed air purge based on the actual filter condition instead of time interval or simple differential pressure. This leads to fewer cleaning cycles and a better filter functionality, savings in compressed air consumption, less wear of filter media and lower emissions. CPFE also provides remote support capabilities and improved process understanding for each unique filter installation.
