Jake Davis, Product Engineer for De Dietrich Process Systems, Inc contacted us for help with a redesign of the Powder Pump. The Powder Pump is a dense-phase pneumatic conveying system that eliminates the need to manually handle solids and minimizes other potential hazards by providing a closed system to transfer materials such as powders, prills, granules, flakes, etc. in a safe and contained manner.
The Powder Pump operates via a series of pressure and vacuum valves that turn on and off in an automated sequence to manage the transfer and ﬂow of powder from the source equipment to the receiving vessel. The proposed application utilizes a Maple Systems 7.0" touchscreen with an integrated IO module.
Testing was performed remotely with through collaboration between the Maple Systems Applications Engineer and De Dietrich Machine Operator using remote access software. After testing, the program worked as expected and the customer was able to move ahead with their project.Watch the Powder Pump with PLC controls in action
