Andritz Separation, part of international technology group, Andritz, has launched a new centrifuge control system. Andritz CentriTune is a PLC-based system that increases the performance and availability of new and existing decanter centrifuges, regardless of whether these are Andritz machines or not.
Andritz CentriTune offers numerous advantages, such as relative speed control, allowing the operator to enter the speed set points directly. It is also able to work in different operating modes. The system features a torque control mode for constant dryness at the cake discharge and preconfigured cleaning sequences for optimised operation, providing the flexibility to adapt to the plant and product.
In addition, the new Andritz control system has a maintenance and manual operating mode, as well as providing alarms and support systems in troubleshooting.
