Batch Process Control

Overview.

The PLC Controls the complete batching process from the initial delivery and weighing of ingredients into the mixing vessel, product valve routings, through
the mixing cycle to delivery to main storage vessels and controlled delivery to filling line machinery.

The recipes parameters are controlled by the batch server, giving better quality control and less product wastage therefore achieving improved plant efficiency.

The mixing vessel requires minimal operator intervention due to the ingredients being automatically added. The master recipe is followed automatically.
Ingredient feed has coarse and fine controls, giving consistent batch quality
