Atlanta-based auxiliary equipment maker Process Control Corp. has introduced a gravimetric inventory management system, to help processors accurately weigh and store resin pellets or repelletized material.
The system weighs repelletized material before it is reprocessed or stored as inventory. The system also can be used to verify delivered resin before entering it as inventory.
Pellets are conveyed into a surge hopper through a pressure or vacuum system. The hopper has a high-level view window for quick visual checking, plus a high-level proximity sensor to shut the system down to prevent overfilling.
The material then gets discharged from the surge hopper through a slide gate, into a gaylord box, or a conveyor to a storage silo or a bin.
The inventory management equipment can be set up to operate in a continuous mode for loading silos or surge bins, or as a batching system for loading gaylord boxes for storage.
It can provide totals for a given production shift, a full run or an overall running total of material.
The system is controlled with a touch-screen interface.
