BATCHTRON III - the batch controller for the big jobs
Get best value out
of your new plant by running it with the best automation controls. BatchTron
is a step ahead of other control systems.
Tailored to your operation, to run it the way YOU want. Unattended
operation - no operator needed in most plants - BatchTron can react
to batch calls from mud hopper sensors, demand
stations or Mobile Control
Eliminate expensive down time.
The BatchTron batch plant control system's PLC and touch screen gives you reliability that
just isn’t possible with computer-based systems.
What is a PLC?
Eliminate batch weight errors
and wasted product with automatic self-tuning that keeps your plant
at peak trim all the time.
All the controls - all of them
- are right on the screen, making broken switches and loose wires a
thing of the past, and it can be upgraded on-line. So easy.
No scale indicators either.
The scale displays are all on the touch screen, making it even more
reliable, and they’re all digital; no error between external
weight indicators and the control system.
BatchTron doesn’t use Windows
software - it is guaranteed
freeze-proof. Unless struck by lightning, your PLC will
keep on running, no matter what.
12" colour TFT
screen, much bigger than BatchTron-II's screen, allowing it to
handle 5 scales, 14 solid ingredients and 3 mixers. The
operator screens are ergonomically designed to simplify operation in
these larger, more complex plants.
Also available are a double
screen model and expanded PLC for the most demanding applications.
Integrated functions include
moisture and slump measurement as well as batch and inventory
reporting, eliminating other controllers and giving better, more
Optional bar graph symbols
display motor current or power, bin and silo levels and more.
No fans, no inlet for fine
dust. Even the best filters let in the finest dust, which gets
into the connectors and stalls the system. We know the
problem. We don’t let it happen.
Available in wall-mount with touch screen, floor standing console or
wall-mount controller with destop operator console (shown above).
BatchTron is the choice of large corporations such as Hanson, Lafarge
Construction Products and many others.
The BatchTron-III batch plant controller
is available as a free standing console, wall-mount cabinet with built-in screen
or wall-mount cabinet with separate desk console screen unit.
Plants using one mixer can easily be run from one screen. For
plants with 2 or 3 mixers, we recommend two screens for ease of
operation. The two screens are programmed identically, giving you
the security of full plant control from one screen, should the other
break down: you can display the plant overview and batching progress on one
screen while the other displays the mixing sequence or the list of
batches being produced. Have one operator run part of the system
manually from one screen while a second operator monitors automatic
operation on the other; it's your choice. Like the rest of
the BatchTron family, BatchTron-III is very competitive in price and is
tailored for the precast concrete, block and paver markets although it is
applicable to any process requiring batching by weight.

to your operation
Do you have an automated batching
system with a full time operator who runs it day in, day out? Many
do, and they don't realize that they can save major dollars by setting
things up differently. At Scale-Tron, the first thing we want to
know is HOW you run your operation, and then WHY. This allows us
to plan a method for ordering your concrete the way you want it,
and delivering it to where you want it,
when you want it.
We work with you to plan a full automation system. How much savings
would this give in your operation?
