Accuweigh 's Salisbury branch recently fitted five batch controllers into a single batching panel at Quik'nTuff's Acacia Ridge plant in Brisbane, where they are performing all required filling and discharging functions.

Multiple batch controllers are being used at the plant for automatic batching of ingredients into a slurry tank before mixing. The batch controllers carry out the following functions:

  1. The first Batch Controller monitors the weight of cement in the 12t silo scales using a low level alarm to warn the operators when the cement level is low. 
  2. The second Batch Controller batches cement from a small hopper scale into the slurry tank. 
  3. The third Batch Controller batches sand from a small hopper scale into the slurry tank. 
  4. The fourth Batch Controller batches resin from a small hopper scale into the slurry tank. 
  5. Batch Controller number five controls the volume of water and also provides a final check of expected weight of all batched ingredients in the slurry tank scales.
The batching process requires the operator to select the required batch size using the batch selector switch and then initiates the batching process.

Batch controller number five monitors water input into the slurry tank to the correct weight and initiates the mixer in the slurry tank.

Batch controller number two discharges batched cement volume into the slurry tank.

Batch controller number three discharges batched sand volume into the slurry tank.

Batch controller number four discharges batched resin volume into the slurry tank .The total weight is checked by the batch controller number five and after the mixing is complete, discharges the batch into the catch hopper.

As Australia‚Äôs largest industrial weighing company with branches in all mainland states, Accuweigh have installed hundreds of industrial weighing and batching systems.
