Bühler Aeroglide introduces AeroPro Moisture Control
Thursday, August 3, 2017
Bühler Aeroglide has introduced AeroPro Moisture Control, a complete moisture control system that helps maintain a dryer temperature profile and minimize over drying.
AeroPro Moisture Control gives operators access to full time, real-time monitoring with hardware, software, and ongoing process expertise, combined with technical support, to ensure efficiency.
“Too little information and too much time between adjustments makes optimizing a dryer’s temperature profile a constant challenge,” said Doug Beloskur, manager of Bühler’s dedicated automation team. “AeroPro Moisture Control reduces time-based moisture deviation with a control algorithm that improves dryer yield. It also reduces dryer energy consumption.”
Microwave sensor technology, coupled with algorithms that are built on decades of drying experience deliver a comprehensive closed loop system for for automated dryer control. Discharged product passes through an analysis chute where approximately 20% is diverted to a sensing chamber that slows the product flow for analysis. Then, a high performance microwave sensor gathers moisture data and sends it directly to the AeroPro control panel. Automation then makes necessary dryer adjustments that can instantly produce product consistent moisture content.
“Efficient intelligent control can do a lot for a customer’s ROI and it can ensure sustainability,” said Beloskur. “AeroPro Moisture Control can increase production and profitability while decreasing energy and material costs. Furthermore, a dynamic web-based reporting provides information in a quick read way, customized for the process, and this helps a customer have correlations that are meaningful. It gives the processor the ability to make decisions with confidence.”
AeroPro Moisture Control also makes it possible to view production data in real time via computer, phone, tablet or other web-connected device. Data storage is cloud-based making viewing and reporting fast and easy.
