Coperion's Waeschle business unit (Booth N5516) is debuting a new air control system that simplifies the operation of slow-motion pneumatic conveying systems.
The new Intacon air control system automatically determines the maximum throughput of the conveying plant for each conveyed product and for varying conveying distances. This ensures operation with a minimum air volume, and it safeguards operation of the plant in a stable range by continuous monitoring.
Waeschle claims Intacon cuts operating and maintenance costs. Impact forces are reduced, cutting strain on the conveying line and support structure, thereby prolonging service life. Product quality is enhanced because already-low levels of fines are further reduced by improved conveying. Intacon's self-adapting control eliminates the need for trial and error to reach optimum conveying conditions.
