The new Pick Up Velocity Control System for materials conveying from Advanced Blending Solutions, LLC (ABS), Menominee, Mich., monitors pressure at the vacuum pump’s inlet point, allowing material to flow at a consistent rate. This is said to dramatically reduce energy consumption while virtually eliminating angel hair. The overall energy savings are so substantial (up to 30%) that the system pays for itself within months of its installation, according to ABS.
The system is designed to prevent build-up of angel hair through use of sensors at various points in the conveying line to monitor pressure and material flow rates in real time. To maintain a consistent flow, the system automatically adjusts pump speed up or down. It also soft-starts pumps, decreasing both energy usage and wear and tear on the pump.
