Georgia Pacific-Madera, CA-Pneumatic/Electric Control System
The Georgia Pacific facility in Madera, CA has 13 card board processing machines that together produce 1,000,000 card board boxes per year. The waxed and plain cardboard trim is collected, separated, and baled by a two cyclone pneumatic material handling collection system that was installed in September of 1995. The collection system equipped each machine with a blower and pneumatically actuated two position diverter that directed waxed or plain cardboard to their respective cyclone separator.
|Robertson Air Systems provided the
pneumatic/electric control system responsible for the
diverter actuation and motor control. The items provided
were as follows:
The system also includes cyclone mounted Sonac Sensor high level detectors that detect cardboard back-ups into the cyclones.
|Cardboard back-ups cause cyclone plugging in pneumatic material handling systems and can be a devastating problem resulting in lost production time and extra labor costs. Back-ups and subsequent plugging at the cyclone bottom discharge opening occurs for reasons as follows:|
|The keys to preventing cyclone plugging or
dramatically reducing its effect is as follows:
The Georgia Pacific pneumatic/electric control system successfully utilized the above items to provide user friendly diverter/motor control and stop cyclone plugging--saving many hours of production down time and wasted labor costs.
