BatchTron in use at Joe Floyd concrete plant

Customers & Applications
  • Customers use BatchTron mainly in concrete, because that is where we are well known.  We use similar techniques in food batching and feed mill automation, however.
  • BatchTron has legendary reliability and is at home in any industrial environment including sanitary, washdown situations.
  • Precast concrete, central mix. Joe Floyd, Prineville, OR installed BatchTron batch plant controls for the production of concrete in their precast plant in 2007 (picture above).

BatchTron in use at the expansion of the Kentucky Dam's shipping lock.

  • Large civil works, dam project. Thalle Construction‘s 2-mixer plant at the Kentucky Dam poured up to 500 yd/hour between 2011 and 2016 for a new lock for shipping, supervised by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  A second concrete batch automation controller managed the “wet belt” aggregate and sand cooling system, allowing production of concrete at 35°F as a result.

  • Architectural concrete, small central mix. Bétons Architecturaux Breton‘s president Guy Jacques with his original BatchTron batch plant controls (2009) running his plant with Ocmer 1 yd mixer.  The plant, located in Quebec City, specializes in architectural concrete products and has since been upgraded with larger color touch screen.

BatchTron in use at a bulk material terminal.  It can be used in all food and animal feed batching applications

  • Bulk material terminal, fracking sand. Baker-Hughes, the Texas oil giant, uses BatchTron to control its Shafter, CA fracking sand terminal.  The automatic control system transfers bulk shipments arriving by rail car to twelve 610 ton silos.  Trucks are filled with precisely weighed amounts for shipment to job sites.  Scale-Tron supplied all controls, silo inventory and camera system.
We received a referral from a trusted supplier that we should talk to Scale-Tron about upgrading our manual operated batch plant in Nevada.  We were impressed with the attention to detail in your quote and were further impressed by your responses to our questions about your company and your products.  We ordered a BatchTron control system and are truly amazed with how many yards an hour this old plant can produce.  Scale Tron is our new operating system partner.  They did everything they promised and didn’t gouge us with hidden fees.  Thank you for all your help Chris and Robin.  Patrick Schaefer, G.M.
