"Less computer panels and controls, but still the same efficiency," boasts Vibronet, Lahnau, Germany, of its patented damping system. A solution for shorter temper times, the damping system can now be delivered with an electric panel equipped with a PLC and an easy-to-use touch screen. The electric panel controls the precision water control unit for the precise addition of water and the online surface moisture control that determines the moisture content just before grinding. Furthermore, the electric panel can control the bin level and regulate the cleaning capacity. Control scales are unnecessary since a sensor mounted in the discharge unit automatically validates the tonnes per hour throughput.
