Central System Controls

Choose a control system that will meet current and future needs and that can be understood and operated by employees.

Control choices range from a single-station self-contained loader control to single-pump, multi-station controls to multi-pump multi-station controls. Individual processing needs will dictate the level of sophistication required in the control. Some of today’s more exotic control systems will do a lot of troubleshooting automatically. They include alarms for vacuum-pump motor failure, high vacuum, low vacuum, clogged filters, bag breaks, high amp readings, and motor phase. The initial cost for this level of sophistication leads most processors to opt for controls that include a simple panel showing the status of chambers and pumps.
