BatchTron, the control system with outstanding reliability
BatchTron batch 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. All versions of BatchTron have IIoT (Industrial Internet Of Things) compatibility. Concrete is the main application. We also use them in bulk terminal controls, food, animal feed and any product that is made in batches. You can program interruptions for hand-added or micro-ingredients. You can also include automation of associated delivery belts, flying buckets, hoppers and delivery stations at any stage. We incorporate mixer moisture control and slump metering. Continuous blending, based on flow rate, loss in weight or volumetric feeders, temperature control etc. is equally applicable.
If you need a concrete batching computer, you can’t do better than a BatchTron. Read 2020 article: “Ventilation, Dust and Your Controls”.

BatchTron batch automation turns work into fun
With its new 7″ color screen this batch controller is a scaled-down economical version of the BatchTron II concrete batch plant controller. It has all the features and functionality of its larger siblings. It handles 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. It also handles small central mix plants for precast, block and paver production with delivery to a single station. BatchTron I is the controller of choice when you need to automate standard batching plants. In consequence you will benefit from ease of operation and outstanding reliability.
The 10″ color TFT touch screen has superb animated graphics that allow even first-time users to understand and control the plant. Operators will require very little training. You can customize your control system from the setup menus. If necessary we can also add custom programming to suit any type of plant. This includes 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. In consequence, its ease of operation and outstanding reliability can make a big difference to your bottom line.
Compatible with Mobile Control, BatchLink, Demand Stations and incorporating . Special versions of BatchTron II are in use in aggregate processing systems. These include wet-belt aggregate cooling and batch plant bin refill. They are also used in bulk material terminals, where they handle unloading of trucks and rail cars. They also load trucks with precisely weighed loads and print legal weight tickets.
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, we can add a second screen for simultaneous monitoring and control of critical processes. In this case, the first screen shows the plant overview.
We welcome extensive customized processes and applications such as food and animal feed. Also special applications with extensive automation of delivery systems. We specialize in flying buckets, other traveling hoppers, conveyors and multiple delivery stations. BatchTron III batch control systems are at home in critical batch automation applications where high speed and reliability are paramount. These include large precast and prestressed products plants and high speed SCC or RCC production. They are also used in large civil engineering projects. Examples are dams and associated hydro-electric projects.
