Hatfield, PA: (December 1, 2022 ): Simco-Ion is pleased to announce the launch of the IQ Power BPS-C, allowing for advanced monitoring and control of static eliminators located within the Simco-Ion Conveyostat. The new system will drive efficiency gains for Converters by intelligently managing the ionizers within their trim systems.
When connected to the IQ Power Control Station, the BPS-C allows for the static elimination system to communicate directly with a PLC, via one of six supported protocols. This enables information like bar cleanliness, ion output (in mA) and ionizer status to be reported and recorded at the PLC. The BPS-C is backward compatible with all Conveyostat Systems manufactured after 2015. Older systems are upgraded via easily replaceable static bars inside the Conveyostat. This means that high-performance static elimination is guaranteed throughout the life of your trim system.
Conveyostat systems are designed to provide in-line ionization for neutralizing static charges on materials passing through pneumatic conveying systems to prevent them from becoming jammed. The BPS-C, which powers the Conveyostat, was designed to bring static elimination for these systems into the 21st century. “Our customers made it clear to us that the efficiency gains driven by new trim systems are too easily defeated by the poor performance of the static elimination systems”, says Kevin Coldren, Global Product Manager for Simco-Ion.
The solution; couple the industry-leading communication capabilities of the Control Station with the Conveyostat, via the BPS-C. The BPS-C upgrade is easy to install, adds a predictive element to the static system, and can deliver this information where it can be acted on.
