The Readco Kurimoto, LLC mixing control system is designed to integrate the function of all discrete components onto a single Allen-Bradley ControlLogix or CompactLogix PLC hardware platform for ease of use, maintainability and reliable operation.
Moving all the mixing, heating, cooling and feeding control operation onto a Rockwell Automation RSView32 touchscreen allows the installation of redundant monitors to operate the mixing line from multiple locations (at the mixer, at the feeder mezzanine, from the operator control room and/or remotely via modem or vpn connection).
The integrated mixing control system performs:
Closed-loop PID temp control of all heating and cooling zones. Complete gravimetric feeder control of all recipe materials. Recipe database for selecting preprogrammed formulations. Live trending, recall and data logging of all process variables. Multiple-layers of security access to ensure process integrity. The Readco Kurimoto control system will integrate the loss-in-weight feeder control seamlessly into the same mixing PLC, without having any external proprietary microprocessor controls to communicate with or maintain. The same controller will directly operate screw, belt or vibratory metering feeders from any of the popular manufacturers. Customer support will be provided during all phases of a project in the form of client and vendor liaison, startup and commissioning service, training, documentation and post completion support. Our comprehensive documentation packages and hands-on training make the transfer of systems from the construction phase to full operation a painless task.
