Schenck Process, Whitewater, Wis., says new VKD software for its Disocont Tersus feeder controller reduces batch-feeding errors by up to 50%. The software uses a method known as bumping, which involves running a dry materials feeder at full speed, stopping it prior to the batch setpoint, and then having the controller “bump” the helix motor in a range of anywhere from 100-millisec to 100-sec intervals until the batch is within the specified tolerance. Lab testing reportedly has proven this method to trim batch-feeding errors significantly.
