  • User-definable Feed Batch Pro application allows standard software to be installed at all sites, resulting in support and startup savings. 

FEED MILL BATCHING CONTROLS
PELLETING CONTROLS

PELLETING

  • Pelleting parameters for each ration are stored and maintained within the system and passed to the HMI control package.

  • All batch, weight, and destination data is tracked and stored.

  • Controls feeder speed, liquid controls (at the conditioner), steam controls, and pellet mill loads/amps.  A graphical display will show % motor load, tons per hour, and temperature information in an easy to see, real time display.

  • The operator has ability to set sequential pellet runs or select a source and destination from the HMI screen.  Once started, the system will control both equipment ramp up and steady state condition operation, which can be set at either desired tons per hour or percentage of mill load. 

LOADOUT CONTROLS

LOADOUT

  • Can be scaled from basic data management to fully automatic laser loader system.

  • Real time inventory is maintained from feed production to truck loadout observing loadout bin and truck compartment capacities.

  • Full integration to EAI Mark IV Batch Control and other software.

  • Loadout Pro used with Mark IV will help prevent different feeds or modified feeds from being loaded into the same loadout bin.
