Getting a better view to monitor powder flow

11 February 2018

For customers currently using GEA’s SANICOVER to monitor powder flow, fluidisation and cleaning, GEA Service recently launched the VISIOCOVER upgrade programme, for the safe visual inspection of non-sticky-powder processes. 

VISIOCOVER is a transparent cover for visual inspection and process access, with a remote monitoring option. A version with an embedded camera and lighting option provides a detailed real-time view of the powder flow and fluidisation and can assist operators in optimising shutdown and start-up procedures.

An integrated wide-angle camera provides a good view of the process from the control room, enabling the operator to obtain visual confirmation of the presence of powder or the degree of fluidisation during start-up. During normal operation, many standard checks on the process can be performed from the control room. The new upgrade is available in three standard sizes to match existing SANICOVER systems.

Once installed it allows technicians to safely inspect production without opening the cover, helping to reduce product contamination risks.
