|FDP-VII-AT1-RA Accutrac Blender Controls With Regrind Adaptive Feature|
|Recipe Entry Screen||Regrind Bin Screen|
|Standard AT, AT1 or ATVL Blender control with the following changes. The REGRIND station must physically be an unchanging and defined station on the blender. It will always be station #2 on the blender and in the control. The "RA" option requires two level switches in the regrind bin (or in a regrind surge bin with the switches wired back to the FDP blender control) one a HLS and one a LLS. The "RA option adds two buttons to every recipe entry, "save as When Regrind High" and "save as When Regrind Low". The switches will automatically switch between the recipes for Regrind High and Regrind Low based on the last switch contacted by material. If NO CHANGE is desired (no adaptive regrind) the same recipe can be saved as BOTH the REGRIND HIGH and REGRIND LOW recipe and the same recipe will therefore be run in both conditions.|

The FS3 will be exhibited for the first time at the 2013 Chem Show in New York City On December 10th through the 12th in Booth 742.
This unit provides high sensitivity and location specific detection of very small metal particles. Thanks to integrated Ethernet interface the sensor data can be sent to a PC or PLC the first time in real time and can be evaluated there.
The sensor has a dynamic working principle which means it only detects moving metallic pieces in the sensor range. If a non-moving metal piece is situated in the detection range, it does not excite a signal and therefore is not detected. Contrary to sensors with static working principle this system allows operation with a much higher sensitivity.
The sensor provides several channels which are arranged in parallel with each other. Each of them is equipped with its own sensor coil and evaluation unit. This allows the position of the metallic object to also be detected. All the functions and values of the sensor can conveniently be accessed via web browser or Ethernet.
Instead of always relying on expensive and hard to find tilting trailers, A-Ward Container Unloaders allow for immediate and controlled unloading of shipping containers.
A-Ward's container unloaders are so fast that you can unload 20 foot and 40 foot shipping containers for a wide range of bulk materials. With this unique system you can increase the productivity of your operation while improving safety and allowing you to avoid the contamination risks caused by double handling the imported material.
