Centrifuge – Camera
CANTY’s dynamic imaging technology uses a combined camera & light system mounted to the top of the centrifuge, to provide a remote view of the process conditions in the control room. The system can also be used in conjunction with CANTYVISION image analysis software to provide important process measurements. In a continuous centrifuge, the system can track the position of the color line, allowing the operator to adjust the feed conditions to maintain a relatively stationary color line position and optimize washing efficiency. In a batch centrifuge, the system can measure the product or “cake” thickness on the basket wall during filling, and determine when the product is dry enough after spinning, to move onto the next production stage without material quality / handling issues that may be caused by high moisture content.
CENTRIFUGE CAMERA CONTROL
A camera light combination system is mounted to the centrifuge using the CANTY angled mounting plate. This allows for continuous monitoring from the control room, of initial product filling, the various washing and spinning cycles, and product discharge, therefore enabling greater operator control and efficient identification of any process issues. In the control room, the Vector™ image processing computer will analyze this view and provide a 4-20mA or OPC output of fill level, filtering level, and a separate cake (solids) detection signal. The level control allows for consistent batching to the centrifuge. The cake detection 4-20mA or OPC output signal provides for immediate detection of solids, which prevent the cake from cracking. This means higher product yield due to fewer washes, and ultimately better product quality.
