Pfister Operation & Maintenance for F-Control

training Image

Optimise your Pfister weighing system for accurate and reliable material dosing.

  • The remote online 4-day (4 hours / day) Pfister® Operations and Maintenance for F-Control™ seminar is designed to train the participants about the technology, and best practices for configuration, calibration and maintenance of the Pfister® rotor weighfeeder dosing system.
  • Pfister® rotor weighfeeders are used for many applications in material dosing, designed to deliver consistent and highly accurate feed rates. Whether it’s pulverized or alternative fuels, or fine-grained raw materials, variations in dosing can have a negative impact throughout the plant operation. This seminar is designed to help you enhance system reliability and availability to maintain consistent dosing.
  • The F-Control™ seminar focuses on the latest controller from FLSmidth Pfister®. The course offers classroom instruction from our FLSmidth Pfister® specialists and case studies based on different situations. Hands on sessions with our simulation kits are included to allow the participants practical experience in a controlled environment where they can improve troubleshooting skills.
  • Maintenance training is focused on routine preventative inspections and basic maintenance tasks to minimise downtime. It also offers the participants troubleshooting techniques to quickly identify and fix problems.
  • Beyond what you will learn about your Pfister® systems, this seminar provides excellent networking opportunities with our specialists as well as your counterparts from the industry.
  • In addition to the online training time, each participant will have one additional week of access to the simulated Virtual machine system for further practice.
