Typical uses and how to install it
Mounting in bins and silos
To monitor correctly and with fast response, the temperature measurement sensing cap needs to be in the flow region where material is drawn from the vessel. The optional extension tube allows the sensor to be positioned correctly and gives extra protection against wear.
Mounting in concrete mixers
Two options are available for monitoring the temperature of material inside a mixer:
LOWEST WEAR – the sensor is mounted via the optional mixer mount so that the sensing cap is in contact with the underside of a liner plate. Heat conducted through the liner is passed to the sensing cap through heat conductive paste to give accurate temperature indication.
FASTEST RESPONSE – a hole can be cut through the liner plate, allowing the sensing cap to protrude to just below the surface of the liner. This gives the fastest response time but creates some wear of the replaceable cap.
Scale-Tron designs and installs cooling and heating systems for aggregates and cements. The PLC and touch screen aggregate refill controls maintain a supply of materials in batching and continuous mixing plants. Controls include temperature measurement, variable speed drive MCCs for wet belts to maintain temperatures of materials at an appropriate level to produce concrete and other products within specified temperature ranges. Experience includes concrete plants with production up to 600 cu. yd. per hour for large civil projects.
Aggregate refill controls
In partnership with our associated companies we can supply complete BatchTron aggregate refill systems including holding hoppers, conveyors, wet belts, re-screening and sand cooling.
Aggregate, sand and cement cooling systems
In partnership with our associated companies we can supply complete cooling systems with temperature measurement to cool the water used in the wet belts, plus forced-air cooling of cements and sand. Our specialty is a containerized “Tunnel Wet Belt” which is self-contained and does not require expensive assembly and erection at the job site.
