High performance machines with low energy consumption, customized solutions that meet the needs of an increasingly sophisticated clientele.
EUREKA PLUS and MOISTURE METER MANAGER, the revolution in drying of PET resin.
Eureka Plus is the Moretto’s innovative drying system designed to continuously reduce energy consumption and improve drying performance, particularly for PET, where energy efficiency makes the difference in profitability for processors.
Eureka Plus is comprised of four Moretto patented technologies:
- MOISTURE METER MANAGER, a revolutionary device which measures In-line polymer residual moisture and adapts the drying system operations,
- X MAX, the unique modular multi-bed dryer with constant performance,
- FLOWMATIK, the airflow and temperature management system,
- OTX, (Original Thermal Exchanger) drying hoppers with superior mass flow drying characteristics.
The highly innovative, Moretto Moisture Meter Manager effectively closes the loop on resin drying by in-line measurement of each granule’s residual moisture and applying this data to the adaptive drying system. Based on the delta measurement between the initial and final moisture content of the granule, Moisture Meter Manager interfaces with the dryer by automatically defining and managing process parameters for proper drying and energy efficiency.
Moisture Meter Manager scans the material and accurately measures in-line and real-time the residual moisture control of the plastic granule, using the exclusive Power-Peak technology.The double control at the hoppers input and output permits Moisture Meter Manager to handle the drying process by creating a fully automatic loop allowing incredible energy efficiency and guaranteeing the production certification.
Eureka Plus and Moisture Meter Manager mark a real “Revolution 4.0” in the drying of the polymers that answers to PET preforms current market needs : high quality standards, fitting for guaranteeing the best results in terms of structural and aesthetical properties of the blown container, together with the maximum energy efficiency through the consistent and certified final material moisture and the adaptive management of the dryer depending on the real needs of every single material batch. Eureka Plus is claimed to be “the most advanced low consumption drying system available on the market”. Processors that have adopted Moretto Eureka PLUS drying systems have enjoyed an average 56% reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional drying systems.
The entire Eureka Plus drying system integrates seamlessly with Moretto’s Smart Factory 4.0 software, where data to and from connected devices is constantly exchanged to push all functions to the highest possible level of efficiency. The brain and human interface with Smart Factory 4.0 is Moretto’s Mowis and all the technologies of Eureka Plus are integrated via this revolutionary supervision system. Self-configurable, with intuitive object programming, MOWIS unifies all machines in the plant, allowing integrated process control, monitoring and management from anywhere… on-site or remote.
