ME995-3KS : VARIABLE DOSERATE KILOGRAMS OF CEMENT PRESET CONTROLLER
The ME995-3KS VARIABLE DOSERATE KILOGRAMS OF CEMENT preset batch controller with new added features complies with Quality Assurance requirements for the concrete additives industry. The controller’s most significant new feature is variable dosrate calculation selectable in direct MILLILITRES per 100KG OF CEMENT (prior ME995-3K units required a MLS X10 calculation factor). This feature simplifies the doseage calculation selection feature. All other features are retained. The preact function which compensates for excessive overflows, is ideal in speed batching operations and in many cases elimates the need for solenoid valves. With the ME995 batch controllers using the same 10-pin Weidmuller recepticle plug as the previous models, changeover and replacement is instant with no rewiring necessary. Interfacing with PLCs is an easy proceedure (with optional interface fitted), to incorporate safety features and to provide a backup batch facility.
The ME995-3KS is a ratio blending controller which calculates and dispenses selected ratios for the batch operator. The top three selectors are for dosage selection of liquid admixture content, marked DOSAGE MLS / 100 KG. A maximum doserate of 990 MLS per 100 KGs of cement is selectable. Note: the first selector knob is fixed and stationary being locked at zero (0). The bottom four selectors are used for selection of cement content per truck load. A maximum of 9000 KILOGRAMS OF CEMENT load is selectable in minimum increments of 10. The display counts upwards in 10 kg lots, up to the batch quantity of kilograms of cement selected and dispensing at the selected doserate.
WARNING: With the ME995-3KS model, dosage is selected in direct Millilitres (MLS) as opposed to the standard ME995-3K where the dosage is selected in Millilitres (MLS) x 10 / 100KG.
A batch example would be:
- Selected dosage rate 250 MLS / 100 KG.
- Selected cement content 1500 KILOGRAMS OF CEMENT.
- Actual admixture volume received 250 MLS x 15*(100 kg) = 3750 millilitres.
- Final batch complete display reading 1500 kgs
