6. Functional description
Version: 64.10-0233GB01 11/02
»
This functional description is intended for all operating personnel of the
equipment.
Prerequisite for this functional description is general knowledge of dryers
and SPS (PLC) systems.
64.10-0233GB01 11/02
Ensure in each case that the operating personnel are sufficiently informed.
Functional description 6-1
CTT 1600
6.1. Dryer
The dryer operates with dehumidified air, i.e. the air is not only heated but also dehumidified before flowing into the drying hopper. This principle allows plastic granules to be dried to a residual
moisture content as low as 0.002 % (PET granulate).
The dryer operates continuously, i.e. dehumidified and, if necessary, heated air is produced continuously.
F
The dryer is designed for continuous operation.
The dryer operates with 4 drying cells; two of these cells are always in the drying cycle while the
others are being regenerated (change-over after 3 hours).
If a malfunction occurs in the drying cycle during the program run, regeneration is not interrupted,
but continues until the program end has been reached. This guarantees that 2 regenerated drying
cells are always available.
The air inside the switch cabinet is cooled by a cooling appliance for the protection of temperature-sensitive components (if present, optional).
With the digital timer the dryer can be switched on and off at set times.
Dew point dependent regeneration switch (optional)
64.10-0233GB01 11/02
The dew point temperature is monitored continuously. The valve system switches to the freshly
regenerated drying cells only after the selected dew point temperature has been reached. The humid drying cells are then regenerated. After the cooling time the drying cells are ready for operation again. The valve system switches to the freshly regenerated drying cells only after the moisture content of the drying cells which are in the drying cycle have reached the setpoint value.
Functional description 6-2
CTT 1600
6.2. Drying hopper (optional)
The material is dried in the drying hopper. The dehumidified air is forced through the material in
the hopper, collecting moisture in the process. The drying hopper must be dimensioned according
to its intended use to ensure that the final moisture content is attained. When the hopper is filled
for the first time or at the start of a drying procedure, the material in the hopper must be dried completely before material can be removed from the hopper for the first time.
When material is continuously removed from the hopper, material must also be continuously fed
into the drying hopper. The new (moist) material is fed into the drying hopper from the top and
slowly moves downward toward the material suction box. As the material moves upward, it is
dried until its final moisture content is attained.
To ensure proper continuous drying, we recommend that the drying hopper always is kept completely filled. Automatic conveyors, such as the models included in our delivery program, optimize
the automation of the material flow.
64.10-0233GB01 11/02
F
When material is continuously removed from the hopper, but no material
is continuously fed into the drying hopper (batch drying), the material level may not fall below 40 %.
Close the throttle valves.
Functional description 6-3
CTT 1600
6.3. Return air cooler (optional)
F
A return air cooler is generally required in cases in which the return air
temperature is over 65 °C.
A return air cooler improves the efficiency of the drying cells.
The return air cooler reduces the return air temperature to a defined value.
The return air temperature is set at the operation panel.
&
The lower the value chosen for the return air temperature, the better the
efficiency of the drying cells.
The dryer is automatically switched off if temperature exceeds 80 °C.
Return air temperature is continuously monitored; the return air cooler is activated only when needed. If the return air temperature exceeds the set value (e.g. due to interruption in the cooling water supply or soiling), an alarm message is given.
64.10-0233GB01 11/02
The return air cooler can be connected to a coolant circuit or to the water mains network.
Functional description 6-4
CTT 1600
6.4. Hopper heaters (optional)
If differing drying temperatures are required in the different drying hoppers, hopper heaters must
be installed on the drying hoppers. The drying temperature of each drying hopper can be set centrally at the dryer.
6.5. Automatic motor flaps (optional)
Automatic motor flaps cut off the drying hopper from the drying circuit as soon as the material is
completely dried. The supplementary heating system is also switched off. Dehumidified air flows
into the drying hopper only after new, moist material is added to the hopper. This ensures that the
material is not damaged, and saves a considerable amount of energy.
Temperature probes at the feed opening of the drying hopper and inside the drying hopper enable
comparison of feed opening and material temperature, from which the drying degree of the material can be calculated.
If the drying hopper is to be cleaned or blocked, the motor flap can be closed via the dryer. The
supplementary heating system is then automatically switched off.
6.6. Connection to a pneumatic conveying system (optional)
The dryer operates most effectively in conjunction with a pneumatic conveying system. This combination of dryer and conveying system ensures that sufficient material is always fed into the drying hopper.
Only the amount of material required for the processing machines used is removed from the hopper. This guarantees that the final drying result remains constant.
Colortronic drying hoppers are available equipped with the corresponding flange for connection
of a Colortronic pneumatic conveyor directly ex works.
Suction boxes can also be delivered with the required number of suction tubes. These suction boxes were developed specially for this hopper to prevent dust and foreign particles from being aspirated into the system.
64.10-0233GB01 11/02
A device for connection to the dehumidified air supply line is also available. Please note that the
function of this combination is different from that of the conventional Colortronic suction boxes.

General procedure
In input fields, values can be entered on the OP and transferred to the PLC.
To do this, proceed as follows:
Step
Procedure
1
Branch initially to the screen you
require and then to the corresponding screen entry.
2
Using the arrow keys, select the input field you require within the
screen entry.
3
Then enter your value. Depending on how the field has been configured, values may be input as
S inputs of numerical values (refer to section 3.3.1),
S inputs of alphanumeric values (refer to section 3.3.2),
S inputs of symbolic values (refer to section 3.3.3).
4
Confirm your input with
ENTER
You can cancel any incorrect
input by pressing
ESC
The original value is then automatically reinserted in
the field. Insert the correct value and then enter the
corrected value by pressing
ENTER
5
Position the cursor in the next input field, insert the next value
etc.
You can also use the arrow keys to move the cursor to the left or
right to the previous input field to insert a different value in it.

General Operation
3.3.1
Entering Numerical Values
Input using numerical keypad
In fields that allow the operator to enter a numerical value, you enter the numerical value character by character using the keypad on the system keyboard.
Changing the
value
If there is a value in the field already, it is cleared completely from the field
when the first character is entered. Once input has been started, you cannot
exit from the field until the input has been entered or canceled.
Right-justified
input
In numerical fields, input initially is normally right-justified. Digits that have
already been entered are moved to the left (pocket-calculator format).
Exception:
Input fields for variables in KM format – for instance, when calling the PU
functions STATUS/FORCE VAR – are changed to left-justified . When input
begins, the old value does not disappear from the display completely but its
bit pattern is overwritten one character at a time. You move the cursor in this
type of field by pressing
or
with activated Shift Lock mode.
You can configure limit values for numerical input fields. In this type of
field, a limit-value check takes place, i.e. the entered values are applied only
if they lie within the configured limits. If a value outside these limits is entered, a system message is displayed and, after it has been canceled, the old
value is restored in the field.
Decimal places
If a numerical field has been configured with a certain number of decimal
places and too many have been entered, they are ignored; if too few have
been entered, the field is padded with zeroes.
