Pulverizing Mill Software learns how to control operations.

Press Release Summary:

Raytrol-OptMill(TM) monitors system parameters and controls roller mills and pulverizing systems. Optimization algorithm software goes through initial learning procedure to build knowledge base for processing specific material. Using database, algorithm can determine settings to achieve maximum mill capacity and optimal energy consumption when processing particular products. Built in intelligence lets software recognize and respond to most process problems.

Original Press Release:

Ensure Peak Performance from Pulverizing Mills with Raymond® Raytrol-OptMill(TM) Control Software

Optimize mill operation and ensure peak performance with the new Raytrol-OptiMill(TM) control software from ALSTOM Power, Inc., Air Preheater Company, Raymond Operations. Designed to monitor system parameters and control roller mill systems automatically, the software reduces dependency on manpower, helps increase capacity and reduce operating costs. The software can be used on Raymond® roller mills and similar pulverizing systems.

Featuring an optimization algorithm and built-in intelligence, the software goes through an initial learning procedure to build a knowledge base for processing specific material on a given pulverizing system. Using the database, the algorithm can determine the operational settings to achieve the maximum mill capacity and optimal energy consumption for processing particular products. The built-in intelligence allows the software to recognize and respond to most process problems.

Raytrol-OptiMill(TM) software can also monitor product fineness and make the necessary mill setting adjustments to compensate for any disturbances affecting the particle size distribution of the product. The knowledge base provides the algorithm with information to adjust product fineness while maintaining capacity. The software automatically records information and continually updates the knowledge base. This feature is utilized to its maximum capacity in tandem with an on-line particle size analyzer.

The Raytrol-OptiMill(TM) control software works as a Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) client to various host software such as RSLinx for Allen Bradley PLC's and SpecView32 for Raytrol-II and others. It is designed to be also compatible with other potential hardware and software products.

System requirements for the software include an IBM compatible PC with a minimum 166 MHz Intel Pentium Processor, Windows 9X-Windows 32 bit NT operating system, 32MB memory and 10 MB of disk space.
