Eurotherm EPower Predictive Load Management (PLM)

Tuesday, August 8, 2017 3:23:50 AM America/New_York

Predictive Load Management (PLM) is able to eliminate full cycle firing drawbacks.

Two key strategies are included in the PLM function: Load Balancing (or Load Sharing) and Load Shedding. Overall the load balancing strategy is the most important part of PLM to combine multiple SCR’s that are full cycle firing together with a stable overall power demand.

Load balancing is a strategy of equally distributing power of different loads to obtain an overall power consumption as stable and balanced as possible thus eliminating peaks of power. Each heating zone controlled by an SCR controller, is defined by an output power, cycle time and a maximum power (max capacity), which can be pictured as a rectangle. Rather than letting these rectangles pile up randomly, the PLM equipped controller uniformly distributes them thereby ensuring that at any given moment the overall power is as stable and balanced as possible. It is important to understand that the PLM function does not change the output power but rather balances and shifts the power evenly thereby eliminating any disturbance. The result is optimum load management through intelligent load balancing and load sharing, a strategy that will eliminate peaks and flicker and even the out overall power usage.

By using the PLM function, manufacturers are now able to use zero cross firing for their system without any drawbacks. Eliminating Phase Angle firing significantly improves the power factor which in turn results in substantial savings.

Additionally, using energy more efficiently (i.e. substantially decreasing the reactive power (KVAR) results in less power generated by the utility company. In fact, we should consider that consuming reactive power is in the end simply a waste of energy. While a bad power factor forces the utility company to generate this extra reactive power, it will be of absolutely no use to the end user. Besides saving costs, implementing a best practice of efficient energy consumption also results in considerably less CO2 emissions released in the atmosphere.

Atmosphere Furnace Control Using the Eurotherm 3504 or 3508 instruments

Thursday, July 13, 2017 5:52:35 AM America/New_York

The 3500 is a fully programmable controller suitable for precision control of temperature, dew-point, carbon potential and oxygen in atmosphere heat treatment applications.

It is capable of being used solely to control the carbon potential, oxygen in a furnace or dew-point. Also functioning as an integrated furnace controller where any of these variables are controlled in conjunction with temperature. Additional features provide combined logic and math functions.

At the heart of the controller is a specially designed function block capable of accepting most zirconia probes. Standard features include an automatic probe cleaning routine, a shooting alarm and diagnostics indicating that the probe is about to fail and should be replaced.
For standard solutions controllers can be configured with features and user screens.

User customization can be achieved by reconfiguring the unit either via the front panel or the comprehensive PC based Eurotherm iTools.
A complete data sheet on the dual loop version of the 3500 is available HA029045.

A Major Electricity Generator EPower User

Thursday, July 6, 2017 5:32:00 AM America/New_York

"Company executives estimate that the solution will reduce energy costs by improving overall process efficiency by as much as 10%"

Despite the high profile, one point that often evades the spotlight is the amount of energy actually required to produce the world's electricity supplies. Today's economy, energy efficiency - or, more accurately, the lack of it - is a strongly debated topic that incites passions in companies and consumers alike. Those who generate the power, however, are acutely aware of the requirements. They know that to preserve the quality and to control costs and value of their product, the processes for generating and distributing energy must be as efficient and streamlines as possible.

To improve the profitability of its operation and efficiency, one major European electricity provider deployed a solutions centered on Eurotherm's proven EPower controller technology.

Action Efficiency

The EPower controller was installed on a heat treatment furnace at the client's site. In this application, EPower manages the heating elements and regulates power input across the combustion process, combining improved data accuracy with real-time networking and load analysis and communications.

The EPower controller sends live network data and furnace-load directly to the control room, enabling operators to modify their process strategy immediately in accordance with the incoming data feed. Changes made to the control type, load configuration and firing mode all facilitate improved process efficiency.

Increased Efficiency and Safety with Lower costs

Through sophisticated shedding techniques and sharing, EPower's Predictive Load Management (PLM) capability enabled this provider to reduce facility-wide energy costs by providing more efficient distribution across a variety conditions and loads by preventing overshoot of nominal power. EPower enables them to stay within their contract limits.

The customer is additionally avoiding tariffs that could be assessed if stringent government emissions tolerance requirement are not met consistently. The solutions enables accurate record-keeping that provides proof of the provider's compliance. Without these reports, the operation would be in danger of being shut down.

EPower's ability accurately predict continually and, to monitor and adjust to demand is creating more efficient energy production for the customer. Company executives estimate that the solutions will reduce energy costs by improving overall process efficiency by as much as 10%. Because no electrical parts were ever exposed, the configuration also offered a secondary safety benefit, especially to untrained personnel.

The Eurotherm Eswitch is a replacement for mechanical contactors.

Monday, June 26, 2017 9:42:00 AM America/New_York

It features a broad range of AC and DC command signals with a front face LED to display the input status.  
The solution that will help you to save money!

Mechanical contactors controlling heating elements may operate three million times per year. The lifetime of these contactors is between 1 and 3 years; therefore they need to be replaced regularly during the typical life of an industrial machine.

ESwitch is an interesting solution to solving this problem. The lifetime is significantly extended because the contact is electronic. Its wiring is as simple as for a mechanical contactor and the mounting is very easy: just clip it on a DIN rail! It features a broad range of DC and AC command signals with a front face LED to display the input status to help diagnostics and commissioning.

Extend the life of your heaters

Tests performed by a well-known heater supplier have shown that heaters can last up to 7 times longer when used with a solid state contactor (SSC). Faster on/off cycle times cause less thermal expansion and contraction and thus reduce breakage due to thermo-mechanical stress and fatigue. So by preserving the heating elements, ESwitch will allow you to maximize your return on your investment (ROI):

Increase lifetime of heating elements​
Reduce downtime

Minimize scrap
Improve yield and productivity
By combining security of operations with simplicity of integration, robustness, ESwitch offers the best ratio of performance versus price for the power switches market.

Ideal for
Multi-zone heating
Injection molding
