Five steps to choosing a batching control system
Selecting an automated control system for your batching operation will have a long-term impact on your process and operators. To choose the right control system, you need to evaluate available system options as well as the vendors who supply the systems. This article breaks this complex process down into five manageable steps.
Your batching control system is an integral part of your plant's automation system and the heart and brain of your batching operation. Unlike many pieces of process equipment, you can expect the batching control system to last at least 5 years -- and often much longer. This means that any mistake you make in selecting the control system is something you and your operators will have to live with every day for a long time.
