Moretto’s revolution in the control of the drying process
In order to mould technical polymers that meet high quality standards, the removal of moisture from the polymer without modifying its chemical physical characteristics is essential.
The intrinsic humidity values of the polymer differ depending on the materials, the temperature of the materials themselves and other environmental factors.
Moretto, always looking for automated systems designed to achieve excellent processes and tailored to the needs of an increasingly sophisticated demand, introduces “MOISTURE METER MANAGER”, a revolutionary system able to automatically control the level of humidity during the entire drying process.
When was introduced?
Presented in preview at Fakuma show (Friedrichshafen, October 2017) is available on the market in 2018 (is available in the U.S.). Just few months after its presentation Moisture Meter Manager has already found much interest.
What exactly does:
Moisture Meter Manager is able to handle the drying process by creating a fully automatic loop allowing incredible energy efficiency and guaranteeing the production certification.
The exclusive Power-Peak technology assures an accurate residual moisture control of the plastic granule. The system verifies that the treatment has been performed according to the pre-established limits.
Moisture Meter Manager scans the material and measures the in-line and real-time moisture level every two seconds, providing granule quality reports with frequencies that can be set according to specific requirements. Moisture Meter Manager allows to certify the production piece per piece or with regular step every 1030 minutes or hours as needed.
Human intervention is no longer necessary, as the system is fully automatic and extremely reliable over time as it works on the dielectric characteristics of the granule. Moisture Meter Manager scans the material every two seconds and can provide grain quality reports with regular frequencies for each piece or sample.
Moisture Meter Manager controls and manages in a close-loop the plastic drying system. Moisture Meter Manager, based on the delta measurement between the initial and final moisture content of the granule, interfaces with the dryer by automatically defining and managing process parameters for proper drying and energy efficiency.
The double control at the hoppers input and output allows the system to handle the dryers’ working conditions by maximizing the process performance.
Moisture Meter Manager is adaptable to various applications.
Moisture Meter Manager integrates the dryer into an adaptive system as provided by the smart factory 4.0 project. Moisture Meter Manager is MOWIS ready. Mowis is Moretto’s supervising system.
What are the benefits for plastics processor?
- Energy efficiency
- Certified production
- IN-line moisture control
What makes it different from competitors in the marketplaces?
Moisture Meter Manager is the 4.0 revelation in the drying of the polymers. It is so innovative that it has no competitors. No tool can compete nor offer production certification like Moisture Meter Manager does.
Moisture Meter Manager integrates the dryer into an adaptive system as provided by the smart factory 4.0 project. The residual humidity control is absolutely accurate, thanks to the Power Peak technology. The double control (at the hopper inlet and outlet) allows the system to handle the dryer working conditions by maximizing process performance. The system is fully automatic and extremely reliable over time as it works on the dielectric characteristics of the granule.
