Automated Control System Supports Batching and Dispensing Operations
Ingersoll Rand, Davidson, N.C., delivered touch-and-walk-away automation with the new ARO Controller, a fully automated, multi-pump system for batching and container and tank filling.
The ARO multi-pump controller can be programmed with remote triggers customized to the application and responds to those triggers, performing auto-shutdowns when necessary and sending data and service alerts to the operator. Based on that information, the operator is able to make intelligent fluid management decisions to keep business moving.
For example, triggers can notify operators when it is time for predictive maintenance, when a leak has been identified or when liquid levels are low. The controller also features an easy-to-use interface that is pre-programmed with eight languages, supporting the needs of a diverse workforce and global operations.
The ARO controller operates two pumps simultaneously, each with up to two batches. It also accurately controls proportions and flow rates.
