With decades of application expertise helping customers solve their most challenging converting application problems, Process Sensors will be highlighting the Guardian Cross Direction Web Profile System, with new features in data logging and archiving.

The Guardian System provides a complete web profile to detect edge moisture and coat weight issues, automatically detecting web edges and lanes across the web improving web quality control versus single or multiple static NIR transmitters. The Guardian System can also identify out-of-spec product in jumbo rolls based on time and length position.

For process optimization, the Guardian System can measure coatings on the wet or dry end, or it can also be employed to measure dryer exit moisture and the re-moisturizing operation, providing ultimate flexibility. All systems feature analog outputs and digital communications such as Ethernet, Ethernet IP, OPC Kepware, Modbus, and DeviceNet, plus alarm alerts that can be logged and mapped for jumbo rolls.

The Guardian System also provides alerts in the case of plugged dies or specks on rollers, reducing costs and optimizing production time. For production lines with manual start-up procedures, the Guardian System dynamically measures results of manual operation adjustments or provides input to closed loop control. By eliminating repetitive cycles of sampling, awaiting lab test results and manual operation adjustments until run specifications are met, start-up times are decreased by more than 20%.

PSC will also be demonstrating the MCT460 Transmitter for static moisture and coat weight measurement, and the QuikCheck laboratory and at-line analyzer. The QuikCheck offers the ability to cut out a sample and test on the spot, providing quick sample measurement for immediate results in the lab or at the line.
