Ivanov Automatiñ, LLC develops an automated control system (ACS) for all types of concrete plants (batch plant or batching plant): ready mix plants and central mix plants; with conveyor-, skip- or elevator loading of aggregate; with different numbers of mixers, bins, silos and feeders. The proposed system decides the tasks of process control automation (APCS) and automation tasks of management and accounting by the enterprise, performs the functions of ERP, MES and PDM systems. It can be implemented on the stages of construction or reconstruction plant, and on already functioning plant.
Functions of ACS for concrete plant:
- Automatic intelligent management of all mobile and transport mechanisms - conveyors, skip or elevator (if tey are), valves, screws, vibrators. This feature helps to reduce the time spent on production. Possible to switch to manual control transport processes, in emergency mode;
- Automatic dosing of cement, aggregate and sand, water, chemical additives according to the concrete recipe;
- The ability to create, store and edit concrete recipes;
- Automatic control of the mixing process with the control of the minimum specified mixing time;
- Monitoring the technical condition of moving mechanisms, with forecasting of faults (NEW!);
- Monitoring the loaded time of equipment and scheduling repair of equipment;
- Scheduling calibration and verification of measuring instruments;
- Possible distribution of system access modes: operator, technologist or manager;
- Automated recording of user actions: the operator or technologist and monitoring the effeciency of the shifts;
- Monitoring of raw materials balance (cement, aggregate and sand, chemical additives);
- Automated accounting costs of raw materials;
- Automated accounting costs of energy resources (electricity, water);
- Analysis of cost per unit of output (the cube of concrete);
- Ability to store and manage data about each batch of concrete;
- Automated accounting of procurement of materials by suppliers;
- Automated accounting shipments by counterparties - buyers, mixers;
- Remote monitoring of the process over the Internet.
ACS is supplied as automation control panel. The structure of each automation control panel include: computer with licensed software (OS Windows, SÑADA); programmable logic controller (PLC); signal converters; buttons and indicators; low-voltage automation devices.
The proposed system include remote consultation for configuring the system. The cost of remote consultation is included in the cost of ACS.
Price of ACS: from 6 000 USD.
Delivery time of ACS: from 4 weeks.
We also supply power cabinets, robots, NC machines for concrete plants.
