Coperion’s RotorCheck 5.0 for rotary valves

11 September 2017

Coperion will be presenting Version 5.0 of its proven RotorCheck contact monitoring system for rotary valves at Powtech 2017.

In production and processing operations, this system registers, evaluates and reports unwanted contact between the rotor and housing in order to be able to prevent metallic abrasion, and thus potential contamination of the product being conveyed. Industrial sectors with high quality requirements, frequently changing products and recipes or a high number of cleaning cycles stand to benefit from this in particular. The newly introduced physical separation of measured value logging and evaluation electronics has advantages in terms of operation and maintenance, while the redeveloped control system provides advanced options for event diagnosis and connection to host systems.

Extremely high-quality components are used in the latest generation of RotorCheck products for maximum reliability and ease of maintenance. The electronic functions of the RotorCheck 5.0 are also considerably more comprehensive than in the previous version. Consequently, an optional field bus interface that significantly reduces installation effort is now available to the user alongside analog and digital inputs/outputs.

New and existing rotary valves alike can be equipped with the extended features of the optimized RotorCheck 5.0.
