Automation Retrofit Kit

AUTOMATION RETROFIT KIT:  MaxiCap Gravity Separators.

Oliver’s factory automation retrofit kit introduces full automation for all aspects of gravity table adjustment, operation and cleanout. The integration of programmable logic circuitry (PLC’s) and electronic control / hydraulic sensors add both precision and repeatability over separator input parameters:

  • Air control
  • Table tilt
  • Eccentric vibration
  • Feed rate


The upgrade kit- which can usually be installed onsite in a matter of days – provides measurable improvements in consistency and performance, and is compatible with most plant-wide integrated processing scenarios.

  • Centralized Touchscreen and Joystick control
  • Menu driven direct numerical input and memorized ‘recipe’ retrieval
  • Digital Electric Control Actuation, for easier setup and repeatability
  • Digital readouts
  • Pre-stored recipes for setup and cleanout

Setup accuracy is so high that machines installed in parallel for shared streams in higher volume installations can perform identical separations simply by duplicating the settings between machines. Installation can be accomplished by Oliver technicians, through your Oliver Distributor, or by your own qualified in-house maintenance or fabrication staff. Applies to Maxi-Cap Gravity Separator models 2400, 3000, 3600 and 4800.
