control systems for kiln dryers

vacutouch

It is a control system of the "touch" series, which uses a special multifunction sensor (LG35 - Wood humidity, Relative humidity, Air / wood / plate temperature and absolute pressure) for control for vacuum drying ovens.

 

The control system takes care of the whole machine management and is highly configurable, to adapt to single and double chamber systems, with or without condensate collection tank, with or without humidification / dehumidification systems, with a discontinuous vacuum or with heating plates.

 

In discontinuous vacuum systems, the transition between continuous and discontinuous operation can be autonomously decided by the controller based on the measurements taken.

The adjustment is carried out by automatically varying the drying conditions (climate, pressure) according to the drying process, while maintaining the possibility of inserting timed phases where required.

 

All devices can be controlled automatically or manually, by simply pressing the relative symbol on the synoptic.

 

Similarly, each adjustment parameter can be calculated automatically based on the program entered, or it can be set manually immediately, by simply pressing the displayed value.

 

As an option, the system can be equipped with wireless wood humidity / temperature sensors, particularly suitable for ovens with trolley loading, where the use of connection cables for the probes could be inconvenient.
