Dryer touchscreen controller becomes even more feature rich

Dryer touchscreen controller becomes even more feature rich

News 26.07.2021

Maguire has made its ULTRA dryer touchscreen controller even more powerful and feature rich by integrating the Company’s FlexBus Lite software into the platform’s powerful Arm Cortex microprocessor. FlexBus Lite, a standard feature on all touchscreen blender controls, is now integrated into the ULTRA dryer touchscreen controls, allowing users complete pump and receiver control in a cell, in a user friendly and straightforward control system.

FlexBus Lite features an Intuitive receiver and pump control – with features typically only found on larger central system controls. It allows control of 1 vacuum pump and full system functionality control of up to 10 materials receivers. The Icon based touchscreen shows each of the receiver’s activity in real time whether it is calling for material, receiving material into it, or showing material discharging. The pump and receiver settings can be easily adjusted in real time by the operator.

“With the dryer, vacuum chamber and material retention hopper on load cells – you are able to completely regulate the drying rate to the process rate. This allows the operator to program a shutdown to any specific day and time,” said Frank Kavanagh, vice president of sales and marketing. “The control system then monitors the rate so that the loader will stop calling for material and the dryer will be empty. With the control system monitoring the rate, this makes material changes even easier.”

FlexBus Lite on the ULTRA dryer offers full feature conveying control with several advantages:
• Designed to handle single or multiple dryers (up to 10 receivers) with ground level receiver and pump control. With one operator friendly touchscreen you can control the dryer’s onloading and offloading (and never set foot on a ladder to do so!)
• Control of up to (10) receivers means that one ULTRA dryer can manage the conveying of an entire cell.
• Remote control capability makes mezzanine and elevated installations easier than ever for the operators.
• This important feature adds to the overall system value.

There are no additional controls necessary with FlexBus Lite – the control system can work with any Maguire product and also any third-party system.
