Dynisco Instruments have released the OPT.TROL polymer control system for complete control of extrusion lines. This system is designed for small to medium sized extrusion lines and can either be equipped on to new extrusion lines or retrofitted to upgrade existing extrusion lines.
According to Brady Davison, Business Development Manager, Dynisco Instruments, OPT.TROL can give customers a total polymer control system in a simple, affordable, expandable package that works with existing sensors and instrumentation.
OPT.TROL is a true ‘plug & play’ system with auto tuning temperature control with 2, low current 24V DC outputs allows all zones to be heat only or heat/cool. The touch screen LCD screen comes with CE.NET operating system, Modbus TCP/IP Ethernet communication and a 1GB flash back up memory stick as standard features.
OPT.TROL available from Tasman Machinery can be configured with as few as 8 zones to a maximum of 40 zones of control. The temperature control was developed to allow single screw, twin screw, co-extrusion, or blown film applications to be run. Fully automatic adaptive tuning, as well as conventional tuning is provided. Automated heat start up is also a standard feature.
The operating station utilises touch screen technology, displaying process trends as well as on-board SPC functions. The use of pre-defined screens and sequence control simplify set ups for users. Recipes, screen captures and logging functions can be stored and loaded from various memory devices.Tasman Machinery is the sole agent throughout Australia and New Zealand for Dynisco Instruments and Dynisco Polymer Test.
