Using an automated batching system to improve product quality, operating efficiency, and inventory management

Does your batching operation produce batches of inconsistent quality or require constant operator attention? Is the operation too slow to meet your production requirements, or does it operate at less-than-peak efficiency? Does operator error contribute to in- accurate ingredient inventories? Whether your operation is large or small, using an automated batching system can eliminate problems like these. This article first discusses how an automated batching system works, then describes two automated batching system applications.

In bulk solids processing operations, the final product's quality depends on the proportions and mixture of ingredients in a batch.
