A new graphical color touchscreen can control and monitor up to six feeders on a blender and, as an option, can also manage up to seven material loaders and one conveying blower with filter. New GRAVinet controls from Motan, Inc., Plainwell, Mich., are designed for the company’s Gravicolor gravimetric batch blenders and in some cases eliminate the need for a separate conveying control. They have an embedded PLC and Ethernet port for communication with other Motan blenders, dryers, and conveying systems.
