System controller for dilute phase conveying operation
The EDIP Controller facilitates the operation of a dilute phase conveying system utilizing the Schenck Process proprietary Enhanced Dilute Phase control algorithm.
With the color touch screen, on-board physical I/O and the ability to communicate over Ethernet/IP, the EDIP Controller may be used stand-alone or with an existing plant control system to optimize material convey velocity. The result is energy savings (compared to typical dilute phase operation) and reductions in degradation and wear associated with high velocities.
The EDIP Controller contains the following functions:
- Blower speed calculation
- Color touch screen operator interface
- Blower start/stop control
- Purge function
- System alarms
- Data logging
- Energy savings calculation
