PCC Recently Installed a 3 Layer Co Ex Line

PCC Recently Installed a 3 Layer CoEx

PCC Recently Installed a 3 Layer Co-Ex Line featuring our new VacuBloc and EasyLink cost saving features.

This new installation includes 3 of our state-of-the-art Guardian® Series 2 Gravimetric Batch Blenders providing precise batch-to-batch dispensing and consistent homogenous blending. Standard features include offthe-shelf controls, color touch-screen, quickly removable cartridge gates with V-gate metering, segmented material hoppers, integral drain chute, and a “No Dead Zone” mixing chamber. The Guardian® can be equipped with up to 12 ingredient hoppers, with each hopper capable of running 0-100% of the recipe with dispensing accuracy up to +/-0.02%. Guardian® Series 2 is comprised of six models, including 1.0kg, 2.5kg, 5kg, 12kg, 18kg and 25kg, with throughput rates exceeding 10,000PPH. Guardian® Series 2 blenders continue to set the standard for accuracy and blend homogeneity in each and every batch.

Our blenders are equipped with PCC VacuBloc manifolds that reduces the vacuum lines required to only one line per block. This saves in both materials and labor. The manifold holds all the sequencing valves that operate from the single vacuum line. The compressed air needed to operate the sequence valves also comes from our VacuBloc so you only need one compressed air line to the manifold. This gives you the ability to remote or blender mount the VacuBloc for easier maintenance and cuts down on installation time and costs.

Finally, the 3 layer line is equipped with PCC EasyLink

Easylink gives you the ability to run one Ethernet (24volt) cable from receiver to receiver. If it’s a co-ex line you still only run one Ethernet cable from each receiver blender to blender. The 24volt power would come from your Process Control blender. This dramatically cuts down on installation time and costs. The total savings for a 3-layer line conservatively totals $17k and even more savings for larger lines.

PCC Special Project 2018

PROCESS CONTROL
August 2018 PCC Special Project
P: 770.449.8810  F: 770.449.5445
6875 Mimms Drive, Atlanta, GA 30340 www.process-control.com

Process Control recently completed a custom job that includes a 25kg mixer only. The mixing chamber
was taken from the G2 Gravimetric Blender (as shown) and modified to include extra safety inter-
locks, a modified top plate for loading, and simplified controls. Once mixing stops, the cartridge
gate opens allowing material to gravity flow out the bottom of the
chamber. Blow- down with high pressure air streams also begins at stoppage and assists to quickly
empty all pellets from the mixing chamber.
This self-cleaning allows quick and easy change-over.
Process Control maintains a complete engineering staff including mechanical designers and
engineers, electrical, software and communication engineers.
