Allen Bradley PLC and Controls make the unit easy to operate by including a graphic overview of the entire system.

Full control of the vacuum, refrigeration system, and data logging allow for trend analysis and cycle development. Optional cart control allows for varying temperatures among individual carts to optimize processing differentiated products within that cycle.
