Exhibiting in booth #SL 6307, Emerson will present the new integration of AVENTICS series 652/653 air preparation units with AF2 flow sensors. The combined solution enables more efficient air consumption and versatility for packaging lines. The expanded capabilities of the newly combined solution provide a clearer picture of air consumption in pneumatic systems and deliver valuable insights that can help facilities significantly improve packaging line efficiency and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
On their own, series 652/653 air preparation units provide clean air and pressure control to downstream pneumatic devices. Now that they can integrate with the AF2, end users can benefit from the versatility and wide variety of options this range of filters, regulators and lubricators (FRLs) offers. Operators can monitor air consumption, including flow, pressure and temperature, to detect leaks and optimize energy use. With an integrated analysis option, the integrated solution provides alerts that enable the appropriate personnel to address early-stage leakage and perform preventative maintenance before issues arise.
The compact series 652/653 with integrated AF2 sensor is easy to assemble and install. It comes in an in-line piped version as well a modular filter version with both British Standard Pipe Parallel (G) thread and American Standard Pipe Tapered (NTP) thread, making it more widely available in the U.S. and creating new possibilities for use. Online configuration makes it simple to connect and operate, and its open interface conveniently works with existing protocols. The integrated solution can retrofit on existing machines with few changes and be directly interpreted by many different controllers. An integrated data logger records and stores data up to seven days.
