CHICAGO (July 2, 3:45 p.m. EDT) — Coperion's Waeschle business unit debuted a new air control system designed to simplify 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. That ensures operation with a minimum air volume and 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, prolonging service life. Product quality is enhanced because already-low levels of fines are reduced further by improved conveying. Intacon's self-adapting control eliminates the need for trial and error to reach optimum conveying conditions.
