The Online Particle Size Controller OPC is a measuring device for the continuous determination of the particle size of free-flowing bulk materials of all kinds.
The OPC is integrated directly into the grinding process of the hammer mill. Regrind is fed into the OPC via a bypass and the particle size is determined there using a camera. The measurement data is then evaluated in the OPC software, which is available in several languages. If the particle size deviates from the previously defined specification or if there is a screen break, the OPC software informs the operator.
This automated and integrated measuring process increases throughput because the grinding process does not have to be interrupted during the analysis. Due to the continuous analysis, the quality of the ground material is also improved.
