The Computer Controlled Liquid Packaging Teaching Unit, "EDLC", unit is a liquid and semi-dense products dosing machine based on dose delivery through a pneumatically-operated cylinder.
The product is absorbed by the unit from the tank installed for the user to have the product stored.
Afterwards, every time it is activated (manually with the pedal or the software), the unit delivers two doses through the two dosing nozzles. The dose delivered will be that one previously selected in the piston with a handle.
An automatic working mode can also be selected. In that case, the machine delivers doses on a repeated and continuous basis.
The unit also has a cleaning mode. It activates a dosing cycle that empties all the content of the dosing cylinder. It facilitates the cleaning inside the machine.
The unit can regulate these parameters:
- Lowering/lifting time of the dosing nozzles, making the dosage progressively made from the bottom of the bottle upwards by means of pneumatic flow regulators.
- Dose delivered by the unit by means of the manual handle.
- Closing/opening speed of the dosing nozzle.
- Dosing/suction speed by means of pneumatic flow regulators.
The hoses used in the dosing machine are coupled by quick release elements, so that when the coupling is disconnected, the air output is automatically interrupted and the disconnected part is slowly depressurized.
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
