Food manufacturers operate under demanding conditions and have high requirements in regard to hygiene, safety and flexibility. Therefore, they are dependent on reliable equipment which is catered to their needs.

RotorCheck 5.0 is an add-on solution for Coperion’s rotary valves which detects, evaluates and reports unintended contact between the rotor and the housing.

Coperion RotorCheck 5.0 Contact Monitoring System for Rotary Valves

By constantly monitoring contact between the rotor and housing, RotorCheck 5.0 helps to prevent metallic abrasion. Therefore, food manufacturers have high control over the product being conveyed and can reliably avoid potential contamination. Thanks to the flexible control system, the device can be adapted to changing production conditions. In this connection, the parameters of the device can be easily adjusted to product properties or varying cleaning cycles. Another advantage is based on the diagnosis interface of the contact monitoring system. Both the settings and the analysis data are accessible via a web interface through which operating RotorCheck 5.0 becomes very convenient and easy. Moreover, the control center is permanently accessible even when the production area is not, e.g., for safety reasons during a CIP-cleaning. As a result, operators are always in full control over the production process.

On the basis of these advantages, RotorCheck 5.0 is especially suitable for food manufacturers with high requirements in terms of product quality and product safety. At the same time, this add-on can be extremely beneficial in the context of regular product changes, or if frequent cleaning cycles are necessary.

As the infographic shows, the visualization in the process control center is simple and easy to understand. Whenever there is a short or long metal contact the system sets off an alarm.
