BatchTron, control systems with outstanding reliability.
BatchTron control systems are versatile and adaptable to all types of batch based or continuous processes where solid and liquid ingredients need to be batched and mixed in a timed sequence; concrete is the main application but it is also used in bulk terminal controls, food, animal feed and any product that is made in batches. Interruptions for hand-added or micro-ingredients and automation of associated delivery belts, flying buckets, hoppers and delivery stations can be included at any stage. Continuous blending based on flow rate, loss in weight or volumetric feeders, temperature control etc. is equally applicable.
BatchTron batch automation turns work into fun
BATCHTRON I – with its new 7″ color screen this batch controller is a scaled-down economical version of the BatchTron II concrete batch plant controller with all the features and functionality of its larger siblings. Handling up to 6 aggregates, 3 cements, 2 waters, 6 admixtures and 2 to 3 scales in “standard” plant configurations, BatchTron I is capable of controlling most ready-mix batching plants, with or without mixer, or small central mix plants for precast, block and paver production with delivery to a single station. BatchTron I is the controller of choice when automating standard batching plants which can benefit from ease of operation and outstanding reliability. Compatible with BatchLink, Demand Stations.
BATCHTRON II – the 10″ color TFT touch screen has superb animated graphics that allow even first-time users to understand and control the plant with practically no training. All control systems can be customized from setup menus plus custom programming when necessary, to suit any type of plant, with mixer delivering to multiple delivery stations via conveyors, chutes or travelling hoppers. BatchTron II is ideal for batch automation in demanding high-production precast and prestressed concrete, block and paver plants where ease of operation and outstanding reliability can make a big difference to the bottom line. Compatible with Mobile Control, BatchLink, Demand Stations. Special versions of BatchTron II are in use in aggregate processing systems including wet-belt aggregate cooling and batch plant bin refill. They are also used in bulk material terminals, handling unloading of trucks and rail cars as well as loading trucks with precisely weighed loads and printing of legal weight tickets.
BATCHTRON III – A 12″ color TFT touch screen is big enough to display two or even three mixers with ease, along with all the assorted conveyors, holding hoppers, delivery stations and special customizations. For high production 2 and 3 mixer concrete products plant control systems, a second screen is available for simultaneous monitoring and control of critical processes as well as the plant overview. Extensive customized processes and applications such as food and animal feed are welcomed. BatchTron III batch control systems are in use in critical batch automation applications where high speed and reliability are paramount, from large precast and prestressed products plants to high speed SCC and RCC production for large civil engineering projects such as dams and associated hydro-electric projects, seen at right.
Multiple scales can be fed from pre-set groups of ingredients to multiple mixers by any combination of conveyors, skip hoists, holding hoppers etc. Multiple waters and admixtures can be added in any sequence. Many pre-programmed mixing sequences can be attached to formulas and automatically implemented, with delivery to any combination of chutes, conveyors, travelling hoppers etc. to any arrangement of delivery stations. Compatible with Mobile Control, BatchLink, Demand Stations.
