Make your chemical centrifuge ready for the future

| By Chemical Engineering

In the chemical industry, the availability and reliability of your equipment is key if you want to keep producing the purest end product in a way that is also cost-effective. In many agrochemical and base chemical applications as well as pharmaceuticals and technical salts, filter centrifuges like the horizontal peeler centrifuge are well proven in dewatering and drying applications. And with the new Metris addIQ control systems for filter centrifuges, you can make your horizontal peeler centrifuge ready for the future.

The nucleus of this solution is a modular, PLC-based control system that supports you in making best use of your filter centrifuge. In combination with Metris addIQ add-ons and upgrades, the Metris addIQ control system maximizes your machine performance regardless of whether you are using an ANDRITZ filter centrifuge or another make. Of course, this control system is also available as an upgrade for existing filter centrifuges.

Metris addIQ combines all of ANDRITZ’s extensive operating and start-up experience in one tailored automation solution.
