Loring Updates Control System for Its Roasters
Loring Smart Roast has introduced the Loring Control System (LCS) v2, an update to the hardware and software used to operate Loring roasters.
“We’re very excited about the new possibilities this combination of hardware and software updates enable for owners of Loring roasters,” said Bob Austin, CEO, Loring Smart Roast, Santa Rosa, California. “The ability to create a single baseline roasting profile that can be run at different batch sizes, or other Loring roasters, and get consistent results within a reasonable margin of error is pretty ground-breaking.”
The new touchscreen features a 12-inch 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, and higher resolution display with 1280 x 800 pixels. Combined with improved layout of gauges and controls, critical roast information is now more accessible and easier to read. With a faster system and touchscreen processors, buttons and displays are more responsive to user input.
Loring’s enhanced PID-driven Profile Roasting feature allows users to dial in a baseline profile that can be run at different batch sizes, or on different Loring roasters, and get consistent results. This is achieved through a combination of carefully defined charge temperatures and burner settings that prepare the roast for the turn around. The PID loop then takes control to achieve the desired time-temperature profile. This is facilitated by the thermodynamic properties of Loring roaster’s design, burner system, and thermocouples.
Loring Control System v2 is included as a standard feature on all new roasters. Existing Loring S15 Falcon, S35 Kestrel, and S70 Peregrine machines can be upgraded to LCS v2 by purchasing a kit from Loring Smart Roast or a Loring Authorized Distributor.
