PRE-BATCHING

Intermediates dispensing for manufacturing facilities

Highlights

  • Repeatable formula consistency.
  • Accurate dispensing of components for large batch (up to 10,000 Gal) applications.
  • Built-in distribution system to route pre-batch to a large number of process tanks.

The Pre-batching systems (PB and PBEx) are high-accuracy, multi-purpose automated gravimetric dispensing systems for either hazardous or non-hazardous areas. Designed to cover a wide range of production needs, including high volume, fast fill, and small custom batches; these systems dispense using high-accuracy dispensing valve technology.

Products are dispensed into a fixed pre-batch vessel, and when completed, the output of this tank is automatically transferred to the correct large batching tank in the factory.

This allows for very precise measurement of key components, which would not be possible if done directly into the main batching tank.

Advancing cleaning components ensure that tank and transfer pipework are thoroughly cleaned between batches

Drawing material from pails, drums, bulk totes, or fixed tanks, the systems can accurately dispense up to 28 components in a standard configuration, with a maximum capability of 96 components, into a wide variety of batch sizes from pails to drums using multiple scales, ensuring the highest precision possible regardless of batch size.

This system can fit both the SelectFlow two-stage stainless steel valves and the MultiFlow three-stage stainless steel valves. With a multi-valve system, operators can use a smaller valve for ultra-fine dispensing amounts. Both valves optimize dispense speed and dispense accuracy, offering unparalleled accuracy batch after batch.
