A kiln jam is one of the most feared events that may happen in gypsum board manufacturing. Fortunately a rare occurrence, but with the trend to lighter and ultra-light board weights, jams are occurring more frequently.
Potential significant losses include:
• Product loss inside the dryer
• Lost production during clean-up
• Kiln damage from jam or clean-up
• Operator injury from unsafe conditions when attempting to locate and clear jams
The key to minimizing losses is rapid kiln-jam detection.
The KJD-7000 enables gypsum board manufacturers to continuously monitor all decks and board streams and identify the exact location of a kiln jam as it happens. Early detection ensures quick clean up with minimum loss of product and production time.
Unlike earlier mechanical systems, the KJD-7000 system is non-contact and will not impede board movement Build-up of silicone emulsions and siloxanes, which effect optical systems, have no influence on the RF sensors of the KJD-7000 system.
The KJD-7000 system empowers plant staff to monitor board flow status online from the convenience and safety of the office, away from the kiln.
MONITOR ALL DECKS WITH KJD-7000 SOFTWARE
Normal Board Flow
When boards are running normally, the system displays the deck levels in green.
Potential Board Jam
When the system detects a nominal out-of-parameter board presence or absence, the deck position is indicated in yellow.
Actual Board Jam
A red signal alerts a definite jam detection. Knowing the exact deck level and board position operators can immediately initiate a jam contingency plan to safely rectify the issue and resume production in minimal time.
Maximum Operating Temperature: 375°C
