Crushing, mincing, mixing

When material is crushed or minced, the amperage of the crusher or mincer and the variation in amperage contain information on the type of material being processed.

In applications where the type of material varies, the amperage value in the size reduction process is a very useful variable to leverage for an advanced control system.  This not only allows better control of the size reduction process but also impacts control the succeeding processes.

This is also the case when material is mixed or fats or other fluids are added, e.g. in a disintegration process to produce a mix with limited viscosity, or in a dry rendering process where fat is supplied to keep the heat transfer at a high level. Here, the CORE controllers help adding the right amounts to the process, avoiding excess use of energy and return flows on one hand and unnecessary mechanical problems on the other.

In products that require high accuracy for concentration it can be critical to have small deviations from the required concentration levels.  CORE’s optimization process and adaptive process control ensures a correct concentration of the final product, taking into consideration initial deviations.

CORE’s optimization process and advanced process control ensures a correct concentration of the final product, taking also initial deviations into account.

Advanced process control has generally proven effective when it comes to stabilising material or energy flows. Unstable flows may originate from poorly controlled valves that start oscillating because the flow has changed to another level. Using standard PID controllers, the controller must be retuned which only works until the next unanticipated change in flow level.

This is completely avoided using CORE’s adaptive process controller that adapts to the actual flow and to other conditions that influences the process time.
