Dryer Management System® Control System
The Dryer Management System (DMS) control system automatically and continuously adjusts steam set points to create a stable and efficient drying process. It considers multiple operating conditions including grade, speed, and moisture content. The control system logic includes anti-flooding, grade change, thermocompressor anti-choke, differential pressure, start-up/shut-down, and sheet break turndown intelligence. During system events, it allows the operator to adjust drying capacity while keeping the system in balance. It also monitors energy efficiency and performance of the process allowing for system optimization and preventive maintenance.
