Bühler Aeroglide AeroPro Moisture Control


Controlled drying parameters ensure that a food or feed product is shelf-stable, removing the precise amount of moisture. However, one processing deviation can dramatically affect batch specifications, requiring an operator to over dry, just to compensate, and this can mean reduced yield as well as compromised product. 

Bühler Aeroglide AeroPro Moisture Control gives operators access to full time, real-time monitoring with hardware, software, and ongoing process expertise, combined with technical support, to ensure efficient dryer operations.  

Microwave sensor technology, coupled with algorithms that are built on decades of drying experience deliver a comprehensive closed loop system for automated dryer control. 

Discharged product passes through an analysis chute where approximately 20 percent is diverted to a sensing chamber that slows the product flow for analysis. Then, a high performance microwave sensor gathers moisture data and sends it directly to the AeroPro control panel. Automation then makes necessary dryer adjustments that can instantly produce product consistent to the target moisture content.  

AeroPro Moisture Control also makes it possible to view production data in real time via computer, phone, tablet or other web-connected device. Custom dashboards can be built to provide the most critical data in a quick and meaningful way. Data storage is cloud-based making viewing and reporting fast and easy. 

In today’s competitive marketplace, the smallest percentage gain can increase yields and profitability. Therefore, real-time management that can achieve a net increase of just 1 percent in finished moisture can result in a return-on-investment increase of US$300,000. This translates into an energy savings valued at US$20,000 per year.
