GentleMatic - Total optimization of debarking
GentleMatic is an intelligent analysis and control system for the ultimate optimization of the debarking process. It measures critical process variables and calculates the best operating conditions for target capacity and desired chip cleanliness.
GentleMatic is an automation program that operates above the process control system. It operates independently of the automation system and can be connected to any DCS or PLC system.
GentleMatic is designed to monitor debarking process parameters such as the filling degree of the drum infeed conveyor and the barking drum, chipping capacity, quantity of wood in bark and cleanliness of chips.
GentleMatic uses these parameters to calculate the most beneficial values, controlling the speed of the drum infeed conveyor, drum rotation speed and the filling degree of the barking drum for maximum uptime and minimal wood losses.
GentleMatic provides significant benefits:
- Controlled and efficient process
- Uniform chip flow and superior chip quality
- Minimized wood losses
