Integrating Process Control

Process Dryer & Oven Controls

Glenro provides complete control systems with its process heating system designs. The principle objectives with these system designs is to maintain control of the energy delivered to the product by limiting human reactions from determining whether the product is being heat treated satisfactorily and to keep operating costs at a minimum. This is accomplished by integrating feedback control logic with power and temperature controllers to automatically regulate power in response to known operating temperatures that produce quality products.

Whether multiple zoning is required or multiple energy sources require control, Glenro will provide a sensible control system design with its process heating technologies that your operators will find easy to interpret and put into operation reliably and repeatedly.

Integrated Energy Delivery® System Controls

Controlling the energy of these integrated designs and minimizing the overall cost of operation means added control technologies that will maximize performance and limit energy consumption. Examples of some added features and control devices that are typical
of Glenro system designs are listed below.

  • Volume & Temperature Control of Process Dryer & Oven Air Flows
  • Inlet Pressure Feedback Control of Oxidizer Supply Air Volumes
  • LEL Feedback Control of Process Dryer Exhaust Air Volumes
  • Motorized Damper Control of System Bypasses & Heat Recovery Equipment
  • Integrated Control Protecting Products on Line Starts & Stops
