Eco Smart the first digital cage for filter bags on the market

The Eco smart cages is equipped with a beacon that can be read using the NFC technology available on the latest generation of mobile devices. The basket is uniquely identified and all information relating to the product and orders are associated with it, making them available for consultation, through the EcoSmartCage application, capable of communicating with a data platform that collects and transmits information

The Eco Smart digital system also allows you to perform scheduled maintenance for the specific application based on the construction characteristics of the basket according to schedules that provide for planned checks according to predefined checklists. The system not only manages information relating to the order (EAM: Enterprise Asset Management) but also guides in maintenance activities by introducing proactive intervention logics (CMMS: Computerized Maintenance Management System)

The EcoSmart digital system has been designed to operate in hostile environments, with the presence of aggressive chemicals, humidity and high temperatures and in the absence of wan network signals. The EcoSmart system requires staff access at the time of interaction; it is therefore not to be considered as a continuous monitoring device, but rather as an aid to maintenance operations, data management and requests for assistance.


he communication technology


The technology used to communicate with the cages is always at hand. In fact, it is not necessary to have special equipment or readers to access the data of the basket. EcoSmart uses, in fact, the NFC (Near Field Communication) technology that is included in most smartphones and tablets available on the market. Access is guaranteed through the contact of the device with the basket tag. The tag is appropriately colored and numbered to allow quick visual identification once installed in the dust collector.

The connection rules

personalizzato The installation sites of the cages for the bag filters are often far from the population centers and with objective limits of local network connections generally due to the wide spaces of the installations. Therefore, taking advantage of the global connection capabilities guaranteed by the use of the smartphone or tablet sim with a simple download of our application (EcoSmartCage) shortens the global distance between the operator and our platform. Where the telephone connection is not possible online, our application will record the activities to broadcast them as soon as the signal is restored.

The energy of the device


A major functional limitation in remote installations and in hostile environments difficult to reach by wiring lies for the applications in the IoT field in the need for the digital device to be powered over time. The EcoSmart digital system is not equipped with autonomous energy but uses the smartphone or tablet to activate its circuit during the interaction phase. It is therefore a passive RFID device that does not require the use of batteries and replacements due to its low charge.

Data analysis


Know the status of the inspections performed, quickly trace the constructive and qualitative characteristics of the basket or sleeve, trace the position of the spare baskets, analyze consumption and duration over time, and guide the maintenance intervention choices for the entire park of installations. Thanks to EcoSmart Platform, the customer can have an accurate analysis of the data coming from his plants to minimize downtime risks, plan interventions and optimize process operating costs.


There are countless advantages of EcoSmart for those who access the platform. Through the App, EcoSmartCage, it is possible to check the inventory and have access to the features of the installed product without having to physically extract it from the manifold. The requirement is required whenever it is necessary, for example, to order spare parts. It is also possible to open an assistance ticket at any time to communicate in real-time with CleanAir staff. View the history of maintenance carried out and installation dates, provide a guide to the safe handling and installation procedures, geo-locate the products and extend the guarantees following documented checks in the field, and provide an organized reporting aid for inspection activities, guide maintenance activities with checklists designed by the manufacturer.


EcoSmart is addressed to our customers, regardless of the possible intermediary role they have on the end user.

We serve OEMs, spare parts companies, filter manufacturers, engineering companies, and service companies who use their maintenance staff but also end customers who inspect the plants with their teams. Users of the application are our direct customers to whom credentials are issued for access to the software and devices. Our customers will choose from time to time, according to their business model, how to access the service. The data collected on the platform will be made available according to the contractual agreements.


The three essential elements that characterize the EcoSmart system:

The Tag: The Ecosmart tag is fixed solidly to the basket and is equipped with a circuit that can be activated by induction that allows the univocal identification of the product also thanks to an encrypted code. The tag is resistant to dust and humidity, high temperatures (up to peaks of 250 ° C), and acids. It is equipped with a progressive code for quick visual identification that allows reading even in the event of a fault in the circuit of the tag itself.




The EcoSmartCage App can be downloaded from the Android and Apple stores and allows you to open intervention tickets, consult the data relating to the cages and, if required during the negotiation phase of the order, follow the assembly and installation and safely guide scheduled inspection activities.



The EcoSmart Platform constitutes the artificial intelligence of the system. After more than two years of work and discussions with prestigious software developers and thanks to the infrastructure created, it is possible to receive maintenance reports and scheduled notices for periodic maintenance. The analysis of the data recorded with access to the tags allows you to produce statistics on faults, duration of interventions, and costs associated with the use of cages and filter bags.



The EcoSmartCage app, allows you to accompany the installer from the very first reception activities of the cages, their on-site handling, and initial installation, effectively allowing the required guarantees to be started. Through the App, it is also possible to open requests for assistance tickets at any time and consult the checklists provided for the type of inspections that the products require in a simultaneous interactive environment. By accessing the platform via smartphone or tablet, it will be possible to view the constructive characteristics of the cages. The system allows you to manage the cage as an asset, assigning an identification code and allowing correct identification of the life cycle up to its disposal, even at an accounting level.


The EcoSmart tag is made of sturdy laser screen-printed nylon with a unique code for alternative identification in case of failure to read via NFC. The device is guaranteed according to international protection IP68 and therefore substantially water and dust proof. The unique encrypted electronic code associated with the tag is registered on the platform for authentication checks. Operation is tested for temperatures of 200 ° C with peaks up to 250 ° C. The Tag is fixed solidly to the cage.


Where contractually envisaged, joint inspections of both filter bags and cages are possible with scheduled inspections, including independent ones.

The checklist of filter bags, where not otherwise defined by the relevant manufacturer, is the result of CleanAir's experience and is aimed at preventing defects impacting the operating costs of the plants.

If the filter bags aren't supplied by CleanAir, the instrument is to be considered as a mere contribution to a guided verification which remains the responsibility of the manufacturer.


CleanAir Europe has identified the Eco Smart system as a valuable accounting tool for the life cycle time of the cage with particular reference to the industry 4.0 paradigm.

Therefore, it will be possible to allow our customers to access any facilities provided by the local laws.

The monitoring feature inherent in the system, if properly operated, is suitable for the cage report, despite the IAS international accounting standards, with particular reference to paragraph 16 available online at the following link: IAS 16 — Property, Plant and Equipment

In any case, CleanAir cannot be held responsible for the activities of any reclassification of assets or requests for customer access to tax breaks and tenders within the aforementioned digital transition.

Privacy and data protection

The data relating to the tag and the operations carried out through the EcoSmartCage application, are managed under the directives of the European Regulation 2016/679 relating to the protection of people concerning the processing of personal data GDPR.
