Versatile Touch-Screen Moisture Controller with three choices of operation

AquaControl 1540  controls the water dosing in the mixer.  Consequently it gives consistent moisture or slump in the final product.

AquaControl moisture controller uses AquaMix sensor to measure moisture in the mixer and control the addition of water.
Imagine your mixer with precise, touch-screen moisture control.  Better product as a result.

AquaControl 1540 touch-screen moisture controller, together with the rugged and accurate AquaMix 2270D moisture sensor, gives you three different methods of concrete moisture control.  This allows you to choose the best, most accurate control method for your plant and product.  You will see up to 30% improvement in speed, compared with older resistance-based methods.  The PLC software is the same as used in BatchTron; fast and reliable.

Product features

With AquaControl 1540's full color 7 inch touch screen, everything is easy to see and understand. The display gives you a 'Window' into your mixer's operation - it's intuitive . . . . Read more
  • Uses the rugged and hard-wearing AquaMix 2270D sensor for best accuracy and longest life.
  • Water measurement is by volumetric meter or weight.
  • Two-speed water valves for dosing speed as well as accuracy.
  • Water calculation is based on the actual material weights and the water/cement ratio.  This further enhances accuracy.
  • Run it stand-alone but you can also make it communicate with your batching computer.  As a result, you will get better automation and higher water dosing accuracy.
  • Optionally, you can control two mixers from the single moisture controller, giving you a major saving.  The single controller, AquaControl 1540-2, connects to a separate sensor in each mixer and a separate set of water valves and meter for each mixer.  Each mixer has its own screen pages, menus and data memory.  This allows you to customize each one and tune them as if they were separate controllers.


The AquaControl screen showing the 3 filter stages as mixing proceeds, for perfect concrete moisture controll
AquaControl 1540's screen shows the moisture of the mix graphically throughout the mixing cycle. As a result, you can monitor each stage. For the first time, your operator is able to see the concrete mixing process in action . . . . Read more
  • Allows the operator to know when mixing is done and consequently to adjust the mixing parameters properly.
  • New 7 inch touch screen is much bigger, clearer and easier to use than previous model.
  • Mixer blade wear and adjustment can be clearly seen as ‘blips’ on the graph.  You have time, therefore, to plan a maintenance shutdown when it is necessary.
  • Uses fully industrialized PLC and touch screen components in a sealed wall mounting cabinet.  This eliminates problems created by fine dust in filtered outside air as a consequence.
  • AquaControl 1540 can emulate the other major name-brand moisture controllers.  This ensures full compatibility with your batch controller.
  • You can easily replace broken parts because all are standard off-the-shelf items at electrical distributors.
  • You can choose from three built-in software programs for concrete moisture control to suit your operation and budget:
  • MasterMix gives highest speed and greatest mixer output when the mixer is running batches back to back.
  • MicroMix is lower in cost because it does not require a water meter or scale.
  • Fast MicroMix  gives the same short mixing cycles as MasterMix.  Because it does not require calibration, it is easier to set up; see Mixing Cycles tab, at top.
